Floor Protection Essential
With the prices of houses in the United Kingdom already plummeting, keeping the home well maintained is vital to getting a good price once the decision is made to sell. One way of ensuring that the home is well maintained is to ensure that the flooring is given adequate protection (for instance, maintaining a wooden floor will cut down the chances of needing to pay out for wood floor repair – with prevention always being better than cure).
Floor protection is also a vital consideration should homeowners consider carrying out renovation on their house in the hope that it will help to fetch a better price when it goes on the market. With renovation being carried out, the possibility of paint spills or damage caused by builders making a mess could end up then forcing homeowners to have to splash out again on new flooring, particularly if it is laminate flooring or carpeting, which is very easily irreparably damaged.
“For homeowners who need to sell their house, there are so many depressing reports, stats and figures floating about that it can be extremely difficult to work up enthusiasm for extra sinking (of) money into renovations and home improvements” notes the Managing Director of Trio Plus, Richard Scrannage. “Not only have the CEBR projected further drops in prices, but Generation Rent also published this week showing two thirds of non homeowners are uncertain about getting a foot on the property ladder.”
Scrannage recommends using Trio Plus temporary hard protection fleece for floors.
