This Expensive Carpet Protection Error Can Cost You Big!
February 8, 2022
We love helping our customers but we hate hearing that they’ve reached out after learning about advanced floor protection the hard way! One great example of this? Carpet Damage.
Even seasoned construction professionals can be tempted to use a carpet protection workaround. And that’s a small decision leading to big risks.
Our quick-read guide explains how to avoid a common but costly error, how to have proper carpet protection on-hand and most importantly how we can help. Let’s take a closer look… Carpet Damage During Construction: The Risks
Damage to carpet on a jobsite can damage your reputation, cause conflict with clients and even lead to expensive repairs or cleaning treatments.
On commercial jobsites with extremely large carpets in-situ the risks, and costs, are magnified.
We still see scenarios where a construction professional, working to a tight budget and ignoring factors such as thick pile carpet needing proper protection, decides to select cheap paperboard solutions to cover a carpet.
The issues with this?
✖ Paperboard tearing: Some surfaces will cause paperboard to tear with use.
✖ Lack of spill protection: Meaning the risk of paint or debris damage is magnified.
✖ Wasted time: Working hours spent repairing a product bought to be a solution!
✖ Trip hazards: Caused by torn paperboard.
✖ Unsightly mess: Making a negative impression on clients.
✖ Replacement needed: As the paperboard is now unfit for reuse.
What is the best floor protection for carpets? We strongly recommend carpet film and in particular Armour Premium Carpet Film. Why? Because it’s a trusted and proven way to protect carpets for up to 45 days with no-slip hazard.
Carpet film saves time, looks good and helps keep jobs on budget wherever carpet is present in OR near the jobsite area. Remember: even a small amount of construction foot traffic can destroy a carpet.
Carpet Damage During Construction: Where is Protection Needed?
Carpet protection is needed more often than you might think! Does the carpet cover a route used by tradespeople even just occasionally? Is the carpet in a building where the furniture will be relocated and foot traffic/ dust created? Could works nearby, such as stages set-up or exhibition set-up, cause debris? Is there any risk of flood damage?
That’s why the advantages of professional carpet protection simply can’t be repeated too often:
✓ Carpet wear: Prolongs the life of a carpet.
✓ Multi-purpose protection: Against any kind of high-volume work in the area.
✓ Protects budget: The risk of spills, foot traffic and building or renovation residue damage is removed.
✓ Maintains client satisfaction: By avoiding disputes over damage.
✓ Creates a positive image: Thanks to a clean, professional jobsite presentation.
