Frequently Asked Questions

Floor Protection

Cost-saving protection for most hard, non-porous surfaces and flooring such as vinyl or ceramic tile, and also ideal for keeping grout clean. The tough polyethylene film resists tears and punctures and is blue-tinted for easy identification. A low-tack adhesive keeps Floor Protection in place and is reverse wound for easy application. Also great for protecting tub and shower walls. Peels right off when the job is done leaving the surface protected for a fraction of the cost of replacing, repairing or cleaning. Not recommended for hardwood floors.
