How to look after your floor during a World Cup party

With the 2018 World Cup on our doorstep, and the summer now in full flow, the time for World Cup parties is now.

But if you’ve just had a new floor put in, whether it’s an engineered floor, or a luxury vinyl tiled floor, you’ll want to protect it against stiletto heels, spillages, and any other hazards that might pop up during the celebrations.

So, with this in mind, here are our top tips for protecting your floor during a 2018 World Cup party:

Protecting floors against shoes and impacts

If you’re used to having some sort of hard flooring in your home, you’ll know that certain types of shoes and activity can inevitably lead to little scuffs and marks.

These issues however, can become amplified during heavy traffic and busy situations, so it’s important to ensure that there is some protection against shoes during large parties.

If you happen to have a hard material floor in your home, you can purchase layers of temporary boards from DIY shops to protect them. These can act as strong barriers against heavy feet and sudden impacts.

When it comes to spills, ensure to clean them up right away and with cleaning solutions that are approved by the flooring manufacturer.

Never use bleach or abrasive cleaners on hardwoods, especially chemicals not specifically designed for wood floors.

Stopping stains and muddy feet in their tracks

If you’re in an office building, the chances are that you’ll be looking to protect carpet tiles during a World Cup party (or any other extra curricular gathering for that matter).

In this instance, you might be more concerned about food and drink, which during the occasional goal or penalty shootout, might end up on the floor.

If you’re worried about spillages in your workplace, you can buy carpet protector rolls from DIY shops for just a couple of pounds.

The great thing about carpet protector rolls is that they are quick and easy to apply and are suitable for all types of carpet for short periods of time.

If you do happen to have a spillage on your carpet tiles, ensure to get it cleaned up as soon as possible.
