Learning The Secrets About Resources
Install felt pads on your furniture. You can choose either tap-in or self-adhesive ones, and the thicknesses and sizes that best suit your needs. Felt pads for furniture are available in a wide variety of sizes and thicknesses. If your furniture is heavier, choose a thicker felt pad and even huge uncut self-adhesive square felt pads so you can cut the best shape for customizing furniture bottoms with odd shapes. Lay the piece of furniture on one of its sides and clean up the area the felt pad will be used, such as the bottom of the chair’s leg, with a dry cloth. In case there’s a build up, use a little water and soap to clean up this area. This will create a clean, smooth surface for your felt pad to stick to. On the adhesive back of the felt pad, peel the paper off and firmly press it onto the bottom of the piece of furniture and hold for around ten seconds to get a tight seal. Alternatively, if you’re using tap-in felt pads, gently tap the felt pad on the piece of furniture’s foot using a hammer. Repeat these processes for every piece of furniture. Every few months, examine the felt pads to make sure they’re still tightly stuck to the bottom of the furniture. When the pads wear down or come off completely, replace them. For long-term protection, select tap-in pads instead of adhesive versions as they tend to outlast adhesive varieties.
