Sure there are a whole lot of feet that touch your wood floor, loved ones, friends, neighbors, neighbors, dogs, cats -- that they all have toes. But the toes you aren't thinking about can do the most damage. Your furniture has feet also. Couches, tables, seats -- every one of them usually has four feet. The hardwood floor experts at Floor Sanding Lambeth Have two words to you -- felt pads.
Maintain Your Socks on

Just trot down to the local Target, Walmart, Lowe's or Home Depot and you'll get a wide variety of furniture felt pads at a broad array of sizes for only a couple of bucks. In case you have wood floors and furniture, then you probably already have sensed pads. They do a fantastic job of protecting your floors...so long as they stay attached.
Felt Pad Adhesion 101
If you discover random felt pads on your floor, follow these tips to secure them in place.
Get a jar of two-part epoxy paste. (It's two components that combine together to make an additional powerful bond.)
Clean out the bottoms of your seat feet with rubbing alcohol and give them a few seconds to dry.
Mix the two parts of glue onto a paper plate and apply them to the base of the chairs using a toothpick.
Place the felt pad on the bottom of the feet and let dry. (you might need to prop your seats upside down until the adhesive is dry so that the pads do not slide off)
Allow the paste dry in accordance with the directions on the package and you are all set.
