5 Important Benefits Of Using Carpet Protection During Home Remodeling

When remodeling a home or work space, messes are inevitable. From paint spills to airborne dust and dirt, these particles can quickly harm and damage your surfaces and carpets. Surface Shields knows surface protection, and we’re here to help. There are benefits to using any type of surface protection, but especially protection for carpets. We compiled five reasons and benefits to using carpet protection during construction on any remodeling job. 

Why use temporary carpet protection?

1. Protection Film Prevents Damage

Protective films for carpets stop damage before it happens. In remodeling projects, there are often accidental spills, tears, and stains. Carpets are not easy to clean, and if there is damage to the carpet, the construction company may end up paying the repair price. Use Carpet Shield from the beginning to the end of the project and leave no opportunity for damage, saving you time and money!


2. Easy Installation

Want the project to go as efficiently as possible? Don’t waste time and money on a difficult method of carpet protection. Carpet Shield is reverse wound for easy installation, can conform around corners and bends, and can be cut with a standard utility knife.


Added bonus our carpet protection film works with most applicators. Don’t have one? Invest in one of Surface Shields film applicators. With two different size options to meet your needs, these applicators can be used with carpet or hard surface films. 

3. Easy Removal

In the same way that it is easy to install, Carpet Shield is easy to remove. Once your crew is finished with the actual work in the remodeling project, just pull up and discard. Carpet protector film should be removed from the surface within 30 days and never applied to newly laid carpets or damp carpets. 

4. Carpet Film Keeps Airborne Contaminants Out

During any remodeling project, the continual drilling, sawing, and transportation of materials through the construction zone is going to leave behind a lot of minuscule contaminants. While you can clean up bigger tracks of dirt or dust, getting all of the small pieces of debris out of the carpet will be nearly impossible. With carpet protection, all of that debris will be caught before it ever touches the carpet, reducing clean up time and potential damage. 

5. Surface Protection Film is Durable

It may seem like putting down protection over a surface that will continually be walked on could end up being a hazard. Carpet Shield is specially designed with a durable adhesive that grips onto carpet and prevents it from sliding around. Surface Shields carpet cover film is highly resistant to tears and punctures and can withstand heavy foot traffic on the job. 

Carpet Film from Surface Shields

When you lay down carpet shield at the beginning of a project, you’re taking the necessary precautions to ensure that the rest of the job goes smoothly. That’s why it’s always best to invest in carpet protection film.
