Too much sun can cause skin damage, and too much sunlight can cause irreparable damage to hardwood floors. Sunlight can eventually fade and color your floors and cause warping. You can check if your floors are getting faded from the sun by choosing a room that gets the most sun and lifting a corner of a rug. This will reveal how much sun damage your floors have suffered.
There are simple, effective ways to stop sun damage from happening. Here are some tips to stop the sun from damaging your hardwood floors.
1. Close the Blinds: Too much sunlight can cause skin problems. This is why it's important to close draperies, blinds and shades during the day. Window coverings are a relatively affordable investment that will make your floors more beautiful.
2. Window tinting is an option:Tinted windows that are UV resistant will also work. This option is worth considering if you are installing windows. Existing windows can also be treated with UV tinting.
3. You might also consider landscaping near Windows.To block the sun's rays, plant trees and shrubs right in front of your windows. Bonus: They will add beauty and interest outside your home!
4. Rotate your furniture: This won't stop all sun damage but it will slow down furniture fading by balancing the time that different areas are exposed. Rearranging the room will bring life back to it!
