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. Click here for a link to a recommended product that comes with free 2 day delivery and great prices for a very good quality film and low tack film that isn’t as flimsy or will leave adhesive marks that simialrly priced alternatives will.
How to protect your carpets with Protec Carpet Protector
Whether you’re having a party, decorating, renovating or have messy pets, carpets can be expensive to clean and even more expensive to replace so here is a video on how to protect your carpets with Protec’s Carpet Protector.
It is often said that “your home is your castle”. Every homeowner can attest to this belief, but when your castle is being renovated, it can feel like your beloved kingdom is under attack. Walls suddenly disappear, strange people making loud noises and your sacred room becomes unrecognizable as it just disappeared. A plumber calls for the fourth time to say he can’t make it and your contractor casually informs you that you’re £2,000 over budget.
Ensuring your home is protected during builds is vital and can prevent missed deadlines and over-spend on budgets:

Customer feedback. by JEM, 10 Aug 2011 ‘Worth it’s weight in gold. We had the screen up for 3 days and nights whilst the majority of our staircase was removed and replaced. The workmen naturally created a fair amount of dust, but none of it travelled outside of the working area. Luckily the workmen left their area clean each night and the zipwall, left the landing and bedrooms free from dust for the family. The zip door kit allowed us access morning and night without having to take the screen down and put it up again. Would recommend to anyone…’

Available in a 20m roll, the cushioned foam Handrail and Balustrade Protector is pre-slit, ready to fit directly onto any hand rail or balustrade with minimum fixing.

Protec party carpet protector – a customer’s review.
We have recently seen a large amount of interest in our carpet protection products on our website. Typically these are used on commercial sites to protect floors and carpets from ongoing work and this is a testament to its performance and durability however, they are also great for home-use and protecting carpets from various situations like parties and pets! We know how good our products are at protecting valuable fittings and materials in the home but why not read what a recent customer had to say!
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.’
