Protecting Jobsite Carpet: A 101

The essentials of jobsite carpet protection are straightforward and, once you’re aware of them, it couldn’t be easier to make sure you have an awesome level of protection in place.

Here’s what you need to know…

• Carpet is impact-resistant by design!

Since carpet is one of the more forgiving flooring surfaces when it comes to impact unless there’s a large level of impact you’ll have one less risk to think about. This means protection against things like dust, dirt, debris, paint, drywall, and mud is the main focus.

• Lighter protection (normally) works 

Because carpet is usually installed in areas where there’s only foot traffic or light construction traffic, a lighter level of protection than other jobsite risks can be used. Plus, in commercial projects carpet tiles tend to be fitted towards the end of the project so short-term protection tends to be more than enough.

• One product does it all

The good news? One product – Armour Premium Carpet Film – is trusted by construction professionals across North America for carpet protection because it simply works beautifully. BUT make sure to use our carpet protection questions below before you order because there are some exceptions!

We promised it would be nice and easy! Now, check out your must-ask carpet protection questions below to make carpet protection prep one of the quickest tasks on a jobsite you’ll ever encounter.

Protecting Jobsite Carpet: Ask These Questions, Always!

• Question 1, Which Level of Protection?

Are you working with an area with more impact risk OR where protection is needed over a longer period of time? Then Armour Protection Board is the right solution as it will stay in place on the carpet and give you a hard surface without damaging the carpet below.

• Question 2, Synthetic or Natural Fibers?

The adhesive in carpet film won’t work well with natural fiber carpets and isn’t recommended for this use.

Instead, Armour Defender Guard is perfect for this risk as – unlike a paper-based product like Bulldog Board – when the protective surface flexes and confirms to any impact it won’t tear and rip, even when the carpet underneath doesn’t have the support of a hard surface such as concrete.

Armour Defender Guard is highly tear resistant, rolls out fast and flat, and works on carpet very well without having any adhesive on it so there is no worry of voiding a warranty or damaging the carpet from the application.
