The house we just bought has beautiful original hardwood floors and I'd like to keep them in shape. I'm thinking of some sort of ridged waterproof mat to place down prior to setting up the stand, in order to catch any splashes. Additionally the stand I would like to build will have a nice wide trim around the top of the base to help catch water as well. Does anyone have input or best practices to help prevent salt damage to hardwood? Figured this could be a good discussion around water spill management.
