Can a door draft guard scratch the floor? Can a door draft guard scratch the floor?

A door draft guard may scratch your floor, but it is unlikely that a correctly fitted one will cause any damage as most models are made out brush-like bristles or rubber. Any floor surface suitable for being swept with a broom will be compatible with the bristle draft guard. If you can not sweep your floor, opt for a rubber guard. However, if you have a shiny floor surface such as marble, a rubber guard may make a squeaking noise. If you do notice a scratch on your floor, check that the door draft guard is secure. If the fitting attaching it to the door is hanging loose, then this could create scratch marks.
