Protec’s carpet protection is perfect for when you are decorating hallways, stairs and rooms of all sizes.

Recently I was undertaking some redecoration work in the main hallway of my house and one of the main jobs was stripping the existing wallpaper for a new coat of paint. I have done some work like this before and the resulting mess from the wallpaper can be a big hassle when clearing up, it doesn’t tend to get picked up by hoovers or simply clogs it so I ended up having to use a dustpan and brush which not only took ages but also left the carpet in a pretty dire state.

This time around I used some of our self adhesive carpet protector on the carpet before I started any work. As seen below it quickly started to get very messy. Once the stripping of the wallpaper was complete quite a large amount had gathered on the floor and where previously a failed hoover attempt and subsequent dust pan and brush would have started I simply had to roll up the film and throw it away!

If you’re doing any redecorating work where any sort of mess like the wallpaper strippings below could cause any damage or long and costly cleaning time or charges I would highly recommend using some self adhesive carpet protector. Make sure it’s reverse wound so you can easily lay it down and remember not leave it in place for longer than 4 weeks.

The rain just hasn’t seemed to stop!

With months worth of rain falling in a matter of days Britain is being hit pretty hard by the bad weather. This has an effect on a lot of people and various activities but carpets aren’t always at the forefront of everyone’s mind and they can suffer. Whether you are taking dogs for a walk and subsequently your car gets very messy, or entrance ways to the home where muddy boots and shoes can cause damage Protec Carpet Protector rolls can help keep the rain and mud at bay. Simply laying out a strip over any problem areas can take minutes but save you hours and cash in cleaning.

A particular problem point we have expereienced over the past holiday months has been caravan owners going for hiking weekends, subsequently getting very messy and requiring carpet protection for when they return.

Protec would be glad to help and we have a great range of various lengths available at our following website, .

Usage: Carpet Protector – 17 Year olds birthday party

Opinion: ‘This product saved our new carpets from my daughter’s 17th birthday party (over 38 people in our 4 bed house). This is a fabulous product and I would recommend it to anyone, be aware though that you need more than you think – the 25 metre roll only just covered two rooms (not that big) luckily we ordered 2 rolls – next time I’d buy the 100m roll to ensure I had enough for more carpets. Great carpet protection product.’
