The Golden Rule for Jobsite Carpet Film!

Carpet protection film is AWESOME and delivers big for our clients, but there’s a golden rule you need to know first! It’s this: STICK TO SQUISH, CLING TO SMOOTH! 

Our simple reminder (read on and we’ll explain how it works) will mean carpet film isn’t used where hard surface film is needed and vice versa. 

Why is this so important? Using the wrong film in the wrong way means the risk of loose film underfoot, poor protection and even time-consuming problems when removing the product. 

Our quick read blog explains this simple carpet protection pro-tip AND reveals how Axiom protection films are designed to stop this happening.

Jobsite Carpet Film: The Simple Rule

Ever been tempted to use Armour Premium Carpet Film for a hard surface floor or Armour Premium Hard Surface Film for a carpet? Here’s why waiting for the right product (we deliver as fast as next day!) is a better use of your time on a jobsite.

Armour Premium Carpet Film: purpose-designed for the carpet’s squishy surface and has extra adhesive to make sure it sticks and stays stuck.

Armour Premium Hard Surface Film: Has less adhesive so it clings to a smooth surface with enough grip to perform.

But why not use one film for both? Simple…

Hard surface film on carpets: there isn’t enough adhesive to keep the film in place on squishy carpets causing an obvious issue for foot traffic and for the carpet’s protection.

Carpet film on hard floors: likely to stick TOO well to a smooth surface, making it hard to remove and perhaps even risking residue on the finished floor.

That’s why we remind clients that film should STICK TO SQUISH, CLING TO SMOOTH! 

And to help our customers we even label every entire roll of Armour Premium Carpet Film or Armour Premium Hard Surface Film right to the end as well as use different colors for both products.

That’s why our carpet film is white! (Plus, the white film makes it easier to see where protection stops and makes marking up easier on a jobsite).
