Your dog or your wooden floors - we say why not both?

Hardwood flooring owners often find that their favourite puppy paws have left terrible scratches that ruin their floor surface. Even running to the door to greet you in the evening may leave a huge gouge in the surface of the hardwood floor if you don't have a proper protective layer.

Wooden floors are perhaps the most practical and beautiful material of all the time. But over time, the natural protection they have may wear off! To protect your hardwood floor you may choose to apply wax. A layer of protective wax will help provide a buffer between your dog’s claws and the actual wood of the floor. Wood floors with a protective layer of wax will likely need to be stripped with a new layer of wax applied once a year and this is why we think that the best ways for protection is to plan on lightly sanding and recoating floors with an additional layer of finish on each five to seven years.

When you care properly for your wood floors, they can last for generations and they can also be th…
