Solid Wood Flooring for your new Office Space
19 October 2015
So, you have a new office space and you haven't yet decorated it, but you will have to. How do you want to decorate it? With hardwood flooring? There are plenty of different types of solid wood flooring that you can get that would be perfect for an office space, but you would need to be careful of moving things around so as not to damage the floors.
Putting solid wood flooring in your office space is the same as putting it in any other room of your house and you should make sure that you know what you are doing. If you don't, then make sure that you engage the services of someone that does to ensure that your flooring is properly laid. There are plenty of different woods to choose from and you should choose the one that best suits your needs.
However, you should be extremely care after the wood floor has been installed and when you are moving in your furniture. Make sure that the furniture is lifted over the floor and not dragged, since that can cause dings and scratches in your brand new wood flooring. This is important also when you are going to rearrange things because it can be extremely easy to damage your floors.
If you are using a rolling chair you should put a protective liner down between the area so that when you move your chair around you don't cause damage. This is extremely important because the chair is something that will be most frequently moved and you don't want to cause a lot of damage in such a small area.
Also, you need to make sure that you are taking proper care of the floors, including sweeping, polishing and even refinishing it when required. If you need to get some dents out you can use a bit of steel wool or even some sandpaper, but be careful and ensure that you don't create more problems. After you have gotten the scratch out you will need to refinish the area all over again.
Also, make sure that you don't spill anything in the office or that nobody else does. However, if a spill does occur ensure that it is cleaned up immediately so that the chances of a stain or warping of the wood are much less. Warping is something that you can't readily fix, but you can remove a stain almost the same way you can a scratch.
