1. Vacuum and sweep your floors regularly.
Removing debris is the first step toward preventing scratches. Make sure your vacuum is about the"hardwood floors" or"linoleum" setting so the bar doesn't scratch from the floor.
2. Lay mats down and install furniture protectors.
Put down mats at doorways to function as a first line of defense. They will protect against dirt and other corrosive materials like salt from getting onto your floors. Don't forget to shake and vacuum these out frequently. On furniture legs, use felt protectors (not vinyl ), protective pads, or barrel-type coasters. Replace these often, as debris and dirt can get embedded on the mat and also act like sandpaper on the ground surface.
3. Beware of shoes and pets.
Beware of sport cleats and high heels which will dent your hardwood floor, since they focus most of a person's burden on small places. It is OK to ask your family and guests to remove their shoes when they come into your property. Also, keep pets' nails trimmed and filed to prevent them from scratching the floor.
