February 2, 2024
From the persistent threat of dust accumulation to becoming impromptu work platforms, showers face jobsite damage that can impact both their aesthetics and functionality. Understanding the importance of safeguarding these fixtures is essential for a successful construction project.
In this blog, we explain shower protection, offering invaluable insights and practical solutions. We aim to empower construction professionals with the knowledge and tools to ensure showers remain pristine throughout construction.
Common Challenges For Showers During Construction
Showers face many challenges on construction sites, demanding comprehensive protection to maintain their pristine condition. One common issue is an accumulation of dust, which poses a threat to shower surfaces, affecting both aesthetics and functionality. With various trades bustling around, showers often become impromptu platforms for workers completing interior finishes, exposing them to potential damage.
The risks escalate during construction activities, where impacts from tools or materials can leave lasting impressions on vulnerable shower surfaces. The often messy process of paint and finishing work during construction adds another layer of vulnerability to showers, demanding specialized protection.
There are several temporary surface protection products that suit showers. Many can even be used on multiple different surfaces, so with one product construction pros can protect various parts of their jobsite.
