Hi Everyone.

We're closing on our home in a week (new construction) and we'll be having the washer, dryer, and fridge delivered shortly after. I want to protect the brand new hardwood against the movers and their hand trucks. Would you mind sharing any tips you may have?

Also, any suggestions for particular products, i.e. felt?, to place on the legs of furniture to protect the wood? We'll have some area rugs down but other pieces will sit directly on the wood.

Thank you!

I'm a painting contractor and tape down builders paper whenever I'm working on hardwood floors (available at all home stores and most paint stores). It's very sturdy stuff...I'd suggest putting it down in all the traffic areas before the movers get there.

Congratulations on your new home!

When I had appliances installed last year over brand new hardwood floors, I cut open and laid out cardboard boxes on the floor. When the placed the appliances on the floor, they had a large plastic mat also. No damage at all.
