Do you have an upcoming renovation, remodel or DIY project that requires painting, using heavy tools, ladders and materials in your home? Are you lost on where to begin when it comes to protecting your space during the job? We’re here to help! Simply using a surface protector can prevent damage and help with easy cleanup. Choosing a quality surface protection solution should always be a part of your process on a jobsite.
Unfamiliar with what surface protection is? Surface protection (or temporary protection) is a layer of canvas, film, paper, and other materials used to protect hardwood floors, countertops, concrete surfaces, tile and more from damage on a jobsite. There are many different types available, with varying levels of protection and application.
Ask yourself a few questions before beginning your project to determine which surface protector is best suited for your job.
With these questions in mind, continue reading to learn about the wide variety of surface protection products ideal for different job types!
Protection films are perfect for carpet protection as well as shielding hard surfaces and countertops from dirt, spills, stains and scratches. These films offer quick and easy installation. On the back of the film, the adhesive adheres tightly to surfaces, but can be easily removed without leaving sticky residue.
Take Caution when using this type of product. Always read the label to determine how long to leave the film on the surface. Trimaco manufactures carpet, hard surface, HVAC and countertop protective films.
If you’re painting a room, a dropcloth is the way to go. Dropcloths are typically made from canvas, plastic sheeting or butyl. These surface protectors lay flat to protect against spills and leaks while painting.
Working on stairs or hardwoods? We suggest investing in a dropcloth with a slip-resistant backing for safety. You can even use them to drape over furniture to protect while painting! Once finished, simply fold up and store for later use.
Some of our unique dropcloths are:
