FAQs

How do I install Carpet Shield?
Peel back edge of Carpet Shield and begin to unroll. Press down edge at beginning of area to be covered so Carpet Shield adheres. Continue rolling onto carpet, applying pressure and smoothing down the film while doing so. Carefully cut end with a sharp edge. When finished, fold edge of the film back against the roll to use at a later time. Removal: roll up Carpet Shield and discard.

Can I use Carpet Shield on my wood floor?
No, Carpet Shield was designed exclusively for carpet. We recommend any of our hard surface protection products for hardwood floors.

Handling and storage
Always test Carpet Shield on a small portion of carpet that is in a non-exposed area. 72 hour test required for use over adhesive installations. Recommended for synthetic carpeting only. Apply only to dry carpet, do not use under damp conditions.

How long can Carpet Shield be used to protect carpets?
This product provides carpet protection for up to 30 days. Exceeding this time period for all carpet protection films can result in an adhesive transfer or residue.

Left a sticky residue on brand new carpet

Tauty I laid this down in our brand new house with new carpet for 3 Days while contractors were still working and it has left a terrible sticky residue on every inch it covered. I am so mad that I’m going to have to pay $100’s to a professional to clean the exact problem I was trying to avoid by using this. I wish I would’ve read all the reviews before using. So disappointed I have to deal with this during a move to a brand new house.

DISAPPOINTED

James S Had put this product down when family came over for a get together. Wanted to make sure that if anyone had a spill while eating the new carpet was covered. Put it down one day prior and removed it the day after. (Down for 2 1/2 days total. Within about 2 weeks quarter sized circles of dirt and dust accumulation started to show up on the light colored carpet. I noticed that it was the spots where chair legs had been sitting. I never expected the adhesive used by something designed to protect the carpet would have been left behind to accumulate debris resulting in numerous stains.

good product

Steven Darby good product. mostly lives up to its claims. Dose leave trace amounts of adhesive residue if left down for recommended time. Overall is worth the use even with the trace amounts of adhesive left.

Interesting, I recently used this product and was left with much more than trace amounts of adhesive. I find it difficult to accept that even trace amounts would garner a favorable review. I certainly would not have purchased knowing that. - by Guest on 21 Dec 2016 at 05:26

Carpet Shield from Home Depot

Dot Due to construction delays, Carpet Shield was left on for far too long and in the sun. Entire floor was a sticky mess and the contractor insisted that the delays were "my fault". Before tangling with him and insurance, I emailed this company who recommended steam cleaning. Wonderful results. Will use product again, just not the contractor. Thanks Surface Shield for a great product and great customer service

Great carpet protector for commercial jobs!

John We got the call to remodel a design studio for another contractor because of our reputation to reuse existing items in the remodeling process & it just happens to be winter in Michigan. The landlord had just put new commercial carpet in a rental, the new tenet loved the carpet & how it would go perfect for them plus save them 1,600 sq ft of flooring in their already tight budget. When they interviewed us for the job #1 question was how could we save them money & I said first thing we will do is come in & vaccum the entire space with the new carpet & cover it with Carpet Shield & place sticky door mats by every exterior door so dirt & dust would be removed from the shoes. We laid out all of our wall locations on top of the Surface Shield with sharpie markers then cut through the protector & carpet, then scrapped the strips up so we could attach our bottom plates right to the subfloor, by the time all the electric, drywall, painting & trim were done the Surface Shield Carpet Protector was still in great shape. We cleaned the entire studio then pulled up the protector & the carpet looked like it had just been installed! Now that same builder uses the Carpet Protector & Hard wood protector on all the new custom homes they build!

Ok but not Great

Boss Use carpet shield for years in new construction and remodels it was great for floors. But last 4 years carpet shield isn't as good as it used to be. Doesn't cover as good and doesn't stick to carpet like it use to pulls up just walking on it or catches on bottom of doors.

Great Product, Easy to Use

DG The carpet shield is great to use during a project to protect the carpet. We have used it as a runner for traffic areas, and to cover the carpet in entire rooms. It makes clean up at the end of the project much easier, and its easy to replace any spots that need it along the way. Customers really appreciate the care and attention to protect their carpet.
