Whether you live at that the Wimbeldon Area, or elsewhere, winter floor maintenance may not be top of mind. However, the actions you take now — before the whippy, woolly weather pounds — can save you thousands of dollars and tons of headaches.
Here are 4 Important tips:
1. Leaky roof? Get it fixed today!
Leaky roofs contribute to warped, moldy, rotted out floors. It is as simple as that. It’s true that you can set buckets down and run about with mops and towels if it rains. But why exhaust yourself? If your floors are receiving mildewy or wearing down quicker than expected, check out and repair”roof dilemmas” to staunch the problem at its source.
2. Housebreak your pets…along with your children and guests, also!
Establish winter rules to restrict the debris, sand, and also gook which get hauled in. As an example, you might choose to put down the”no shoes in the house” rule. Or you may wish to just cordon off an area which receives the brunt of the excess wear and tear… then wash that one place more often.
3.Quantify and control humidity, temperature, etc..
Blasts of chilly air, excessive dryness and static, and very low humidity may create indirect troubles with your floors which might not become visible for weeks. So invest in that”oz” of avoidance by measuring your home’s humidity levels, temperature gradients, and so on, and making corrections as necessary.
For example, perhaps you’ll find a draft with a window that’s causing a bizarre pocket of humidity to build up: an ideal recipe for projecting your flooring. By sealing up this draft until winter comes, you will halt the issue, save money, and maintain your house looking beautiful.
