Blog / Eliminate the Mess During Painting

June 20, 2024

Tired of the mess and stress that accompanies painting projects? If you enjoy DIY projects or work as a professional painter, it’s crucial to maintain a clean workspace. Keeping your workspace clean and protected from paint spills is essential for the success of your project.

A common challenge within the industry is protecting hardwood floors from paint spills and splatters. Traditional canvas or fabric drops can slide on hardwood surfaces, creating a slipping and falling hazard. Fortunately, there’s a slip resistant solution that provides the ultimate protection about slips and spills.
