IKEA FIXA Stick-on Floor Protectors Unstuck
- Clean Furniture Bottom
Always ensure the bottom of your furniture is clean, and regularly try to clean the bottom of your furniture legs. Remove any dirt you may notice on the legs, preventing the protectors from sticking properly. Consider using a wet wipe or cloth to wipe down the furniture legs and make sure they are clean before attempting to apply the protectors again.
- Remove Grease or Dirt from the Floor
After cleaning the furniture, remove grease or dirt from the floor. If the floor is dirty, it could prevent the protectors from sticking; cleaning it off is important. Use cleaning wipes or a mop to clean the area where you want to apply the protectors. The grease prevents the two surfaces from sticking together.
- Dampen Protectors or Floor
If the previous two tips do not work, you can try dampening either the protectors or the floor (or both!). This creates a stronger bond between the protector and the floor. Use a spray bottle to lightly mist the protectors or the floor before applying them. Let the protectors sit for a few minutes before attempting to apply them, protectors.
- Use A Stronger Adhesive
If you have tried all of the previous tips and still cannot get the protectors to stick, you can try using a stronger adhesive. There are many different types of adhesives that you can use, so be sure to choose one that is suitable for both the protectors and your flooring. Apply a small amount of adhesive to the back of the protector and then apply it to the floor. Hold down the protectors and wait for the glue to dry before moving the furniture back into place.
- Check for Moisture
Another reason the protectors might not be sticking is because of moisture. If your floor is too wet, the protectors will not stick. Be sure to allow your floor to dry completely before attempting to apply the protectors.
- Make Sure your Technique is Correct
There is a possibility that you are not applying the stickers correctly. Be sure to follow the instructions on the package carefully. If you are unsure regarding the correct application procedure, many instructional videos and articles online can help.
- Don’t Change Position of the Same Sticker
If a particular sticker is not working, don’t keep changing its position. This will only weaken the adhesive and eventually cause the protector to fall off.
- Give Up and Buy New Ones
Sometimes, no matter what you do, the protectors will not stick. If this is the case, don’t worry! There are many other types of floor protectors that you can try.
