Wood floors are popular because they add a wonderfully rich and warm atmosphere to spaces. But wood surfaces can often be slippery to walk across. While the wood itself isn’t usually slippery, things like dirt, dust, waxes and polishes can make them slick. So, how do you reduce the slipperiness of wood surfaces?
The easiest and most effective way to make wood floors less slippery is to invest in a non-slip wooden coating. You can apply this type of coating to many wood types. Once applied, the finish creates a non-slip layer that offers more traction to the surface. The coating can also help to protect the floors from everyday wear and tear.
Today, there are several different types of non-slip coatings available for different types of wood, levels of traction and finishes. At SlipDoctors, we recommend two types of coatings: Dura Grip and Floor Grip. Each of these has its own uses and benefits. Let's explore how to choose the right coating for your wood floors:
