A wood floor water damage stressor, as described by Deb.


"Godzilla our Christmas tree stand, is sturdy, very heavy, holds a good amount of water, but I'm so worried about the hardwood floor that I laid down a heavy black plastic bag and two towels before placing the stand.

Whoever refills the water every day gets a lecture (every time) about being careful of the floor!

The presents are arranged in a way to prevent inadvertent bumping of the water jug.

Babysitting the floor is stressful!"


The Director of Wood Floor Conservancy responds:

You have a lovely floating floor, no pun intended...

(actually, I've been waiting to use that line, Deb.)

The garbage bags are a good idea, and I understand the towels.

I might suggest some sort of tray, like this one:



It's a hot water heater drip pan big enough to hold Godzilla. A pan with edges, of course, should give you peace of mind.

Couple this pan with a Gizmode and Deb, you've delivered your last lecture. Class dismissed, my dear.

Be sure to check the homepage on New Years Day for the winner announcement.

I am not drawing the winner, but I am rooting for you, and your floating floor.

Merry Christmas!
