Snow can cause a mess when coming indoors from outside, use heavy duty trapmats and save on cleaning time and effort.

With the weather as it is, it isn’t just building sites that are affected but pavements and paths can soon turn into a sludgy mess. When walking into your house the last thing you need is a mess on your floor, especially carpets and buildings such as hotels can suffer with lobbies and entrances taking the brunt of the damage . A great way po combat this and save a lot of cleaning time are our heavy duty dirt trapper mats. Unlike standard trapmats, which don’t stand up against water and particualry wet, muddy or snowy boots, due to their vinyl type surface, Protec’s heavy duty trapmats are made of a fabric material and a reinforced banding around the edges. This means they are far better at absorbing moisture and are a much better option in particularly wet weather.

In areas that there is particularly high foot traffic it may be worth looking at some additional floor protection to safeguard against wet, muddy and dirty shoes. We supply a range of materials that work brilliantly in this application including self adhesive carpet protector which is specifically for protecting carpets.

If your floors are suffering in the winter months, or at any point in the year for that matter, then contact Protec for advice on temporary protection materials for your floors on 0800 834 704.

tape for finished surfacesTape is great for covering specific areas or fixings such as skirting boards so you don’t have to worry about painting right to the edge. This is a great tip but often people don’t pick their tape correctly and when removing could even pull up some of the finish on your covered fixing. Low-tack tape is perfect for use on finished surfaces and means you can get busy covering your skirting boards without need to worry about ruining the finish when removing

Protecting Doors While Painting Framesdoor protection

A common issue is when wanting to re-paint a doorframe but while trying to avoid getting paint onto the door itself. Other smaller items can just be taped over, like mentioned above, but taping a whole door is probably a waste of tape. Door Sleeves slide over doors and protects from various damage such as paint but we’ve found it is also great for protecting from scratches when moving furniture through doorways

Stay Clean!
