    Nylon Feet and Hardwood Floors

    If you have hardwood floors and if you have any furniture with these nylon feet on them, you might want to check them for wear. This one came off of a homemade trash can that my wife's parents gave us a number of years ago. The foot is rough and has some dirt embedded in its surface. It has scratched and even removed some of the finish from our recently sanded hardwood floors.

    Re: Nylon Feet and Hardwood Floors

    We had a chair with those on the legs. One of them broke and the nail dug a trench in the floor of the old house.

    I use adhesive backed felt pads on all our furniture now.

    We use furniture sliders, you can get them for hardwood floors and carpeted floors. They work great!

    Like Mike, bad experience with anything plastic. Felt on everything. But even these need to be cleaned from time to time.
