Best Products to Protect High-Traffic Areas During Construction

A construction job site can be a rough place to hang out. There’s dust, grit, and harsh chemicals that can destroy the finished materials, including the floors, in an instant. 

There’s an order of operations for each tradesman that contributes to the finished structure, and it’s not always possible to have the final flooring installed last — after all the carpenters, masons, drywallers, and painters have left. 

That’s why it’s so important to have durable materials to protect your floors while construction is underway. With this in mind, here are a few of the best products to protect high-traffic zones.

Carpet Protection Film

If you think of carpet protection film as a gigantic roll of tape, you’re not far off. This film comes in rolls about three feet wide and is designed to be unrolled over irregular surfaces like carpets. The film clings to what you roll it out onto. 

Impervious to paint spills and dust, carpet protection film allows you to protect high traffic areas from the boots of your workmen and all that they track in.

Serious Floor Protection

Floor protection board is designed for hard surfaces like hardwood and tile. There’s no better or more cost-effective way to protect these expensive materials (and the workmanship with which they were built). 

If you want something a little less heavy-duty, consider a Kraft paper-based protection solution. 

Another option is Blue Shield XLT. Blue Shield XLT is a durable fabric that is coated on its backside with a proprietary polymer that’s both skid- and impact-resistant. This waterproof, tough fabric is easily cut, recycled, and reused. 

The Best Protection from Construction Activities

Like the best painters would say, it’s better to put the dropcloth down before you spill. It saves a lot of headaches, plenty of time, and even material costs.
