Frequently sweep your floor to avoid scratches from dirt, sand, and dust on the surface.
Install protective carpets inside and outside of the house, in front of every entrance, and areas where liquids may spill (e.g., Dishwasher).
Install protective felt mats under the chairs and the legs of furniture to prevent scratches.
Avoid wheeled furniture as they could damage the wood.
Always protect the floor while moving furniture or heavy objects.
