Smile Essex tile floor owners advice

Tile floor owners may be noticing that the rollers on the large front slide-out are marking your tile floor, when the slide-out is retracted in transit. This marking can be prevented by purchasing a roll on vinyl cabinet liner from Wal-mart and placing it down on the floor, the length of the slide-out for the rollers to rest on while in transit.

This has helped us preserve the beauty of our Essex tile foor. Hope it works for you.

Great tip! I have always used the rubber dinner place setting peices. It also helps to vacuum the floor prior to retraction. This gets rid of any abbraisive dirt that may have been brought in.

I use the plastic plate coasters. Masking tape and roll over. Didn't realise it till it was too late. Have fine scratches where rollers sit. Why the didn't use rubber instead of teflon is beyond me.
