hen protecting carpet or flooring in a home or commercial setting, sometimes a tarp or drop cloth just isn’t enough. For those jobs that last a little longer or that involve covering slippery or treasured terrain, surface protection can be critical for keeping customers happy and employees safe. “I think a lot of times for painting professionals, it’s about the length of time the job takes. … It’s those longer projects where they need to make sure the floors aren’t damaged,” said Alan Nishiguchi, president of Protective Products International, Inc., which sells a wide range of floor-protection products to a variety of trades, “and when you take the time to mask off the floors; it looks far more professional than throwing down a tarp.” Here’s a look at some surface-protection products that could be a good fit for your next job that may require them.
