Certain effective precautions are recommended:
- Provide a doormat at the entry to the house that can retain dust, sand and abrasive particles
- weep or vacuum regularly
- Use protective felt under furniture, especially under furniture that is often moved, such as chairs
- In the event it is necessary to move heavy furniture, it is recommended to place woollen cloth under the feet or base of furniture to avoid ugly lines
- Before carrying out painting, electrical jobs, plumbing, moving and handling furniture, protect the floor with cardboard, woollen blankets and nylon sheets.
