The Season to protect your floors from Christmas tree damages

The Christmas tree is a symbol for hope, and togetherness and is a core part of the celebration and anticipation of the Christmas season. Families often look forward to picking out the right tree, and decorating in their homes during the Christmas holiday.

real-christmas-tree

Whether your Christmas tree is a live pine, fir, spruce, cypress, cedar or an artificial tree, we have you covered. Here are some tips that will help prevent your floors from damages which can save you the hassle of floor repair costs during the holiday season.

Potential Issues and Damages

Sap Leakage and Stains

tree-sap

Sap leakage can occur from the trunk and branch of live trees. A newer cut tree will typically have more sap inside and thus be more prone to leakage.

Acidic stains can occur from fallen pine leaves also known as pine needles which can cause damage to your carpet and hardwood floors. Pine needles can also be a hazard to small children and pets.

Water leakage

Another potential issue which can be caused from over watering or not having the proper tree protection such as a Christmas tree mat. Carpet and under-pad staining is a potential risk factor.

Scratches

Improper use of or minimal floor protection with tree floor stands can cause damages to the surface of your hardwood floors.

Mild scratches can also occur from pine needles being left on your hardwood floor.

Proper Maintenance

Small children and pets should be always supervised while around a Christmas tree to prevent tipping. Barrier protection such as baby gates are a great option in ensuring the added safety of your pets and children.

Vacuuming and sweeping pine needles regularly, can prevent or reduce the risks of staining and scratches to your floors surface. 

Self adhesive felt pads should be placed on the legs of the christmas tree stands if you do not have a mat, this can prevent scratches and marks on your hardwood floors surface.

Watering your live Christmas tree frequently will prevent it from drying out which can turn your tree into a fire hazard. A Christmas tree stand is required.

christmas-tree-mat

Water guard Christmas tree mats are one of the the best options to protect your tree from leakage, and scratches. If you need something more decorative you can add a Christmas tree skirt, which can be found in a variety of colours. To play it even safer you can place a waterproof plastic garbage bag under the Christmas tree mat for that extra layer of water protection against your floors.  

Artificial trees might be most convenient alternative due to the minimal maintenance process involved. For those who want to lower the chances of  damages, leakage, and staining to their floors an artificial Christmas tree is recommend.

Hope you have a safe, and damage-free floor this Christmas holiday season. Merry Christmas.
