A carpet protector is a roll of non-porous film, that can be laid over carpeting, to safeguard it against accidental damage. This makes them ideal for use during redecoration, home improvement and renovation projects.
Special water based glue is used on one side of each roll. This means they can be repositioned or removed, without leaving behind adhesive residue. Moreover it helps keep everything securely in place under foot.
Protection film can be relied upon for defence against accidental spills, because it's generally non-porous. Similarly, with no loosely gathered ends, you'll benefit from a flat surface thats safe to walk on. Which makes for a great alternative to tired old dust sheets.
Most carpet protectors are easy to lay because they are reverse wound (sticky on the outside). However, to fit quickly, some products may require a special tool.
Always check product characteristics before you buy. This is because, depending on the make, time periods for leaving in place can vary. Additionally some are only suitable for use with synthetic carpets.
