The Matchup Between Tennis Balls vs. Floor Savers

If you walk into many schools across the country this fall, you\’ll see some common sights: blackboards ready for the day\’s lesson, colorful craft projects on display and maybe even an apple perched on a teacher\’s desk. Unfortunately, you\’ll also likely see tennis balls. The furry neon yellow balls have been used for years as a fast and seemingly cheap solution for reducing the noise and damages caused by moving classroom chairs, but the balls are far from an ideal solution.

Many brands of tennis balls are filled with nitrogen gas, a toxic substance that is released when well-meaning school janitorial workers cut into them to place them on chairs and desk legs. The balls can also threaten indoor air quality by dispersing mold spores and a host of other allergens. Their fuzzy texture grips dust and debris throughout the year, and they become particularly hazardous when they fall off and roll about the classroom.

Floor Savers are Affordable, Effective Alternative

Luckily, there is a cost-effective and simple solution: floor savers, floor protectors and sliders. We are proud to carry these janitorial products, made by Expanded Technologies, that last far longer than tennis balls, are easy to apply and fit your desks and chairs perfectly.

Appropriate for schools, offices, healthcare facilities and other spaces, these products protect hard floors from furniture damage and dramatically reduce noise. Their felt and rubber materials are durable enough to withstand years of wear and tear, and they can be used on table legs, desks, folding chairs and more on all hard floor surfaces.
