Wood Floor Water Damage a Stressful Threat
(Mounds View, MN)
Floating White Oak Floor
Brazilian Cherry Border
A wood floor water damage stressor, as described by Deb.
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.

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