Top Tips for Protecting Strand Woven Bamboo During the Holiday Season

​It’s the holiday season, and many of us cringe at the thought of how we’ll protect our precious strand woven bamboo flooring. Sure, Christmas and New Years are tons of fun, but, with all of the dinner parties, cocktails, and other holiday events, things can get a little frantic. When people come over to visit, your house can end up a real hive of activity! Right now, before the holidays start in full force, it’s the perfect time to put several preventative measures in place to minimize damage to your strand woven bamboo floors.  
Protect Strand Woven Bamboo Floors with Slippers
There’s nothing more relaxing than slipping on your favorite cozy slippers when you arrive home from a hard day’s work. Although it seems all too natural an action for your family, your guests may not be used to the switch-up. Even so, this is a great way to protect floors, since shoes and boots are a big flooring no-no. To make the transition to slippers seamless, keep plenty of different kinds and sizes by the door, or invite holiday visitors to bring their own. 

Protect Strand Woven Bamboo Floors by Cleaning Pet Paws
Depending upon your wintertime climate, you may experience snow, slush, and salt. While many of us think it’s a no-brainer to remove our winter boots, there are some that forget how grungy pet paws can get in winter weather. Keep your bamboo floors from getting scratched by cleaning pet’s paws at the door. The last thing you want is Fido unknowingly damaging your flooring after a much-needed walk.   

Protect Strand Woven Bamboo Floors with a Tree Tray
Does your family enjoy having a real Christmas tree? If you’re one of the many that love the authentic pine tree look, then you’ll need to get a tree tray to minimize water seepage. When you buy one, make sure to pick a tray that’s quite deep to catch any errant spills that may have otherwise ended up on your bamboo. 

Protect Strand Woven Bamboo Floors with Extra Tables
The more surfaces that you have available for drinks, food, and appetizers, the less chance you’ll have of food-related accidents. When it comes down to it, buffets, coffee and side tables reduce the likelihood of spills and mishaps, since those extra surfaces ensure that guests have plenty of room to perch their wine and whatnot.
