If you want to ensure that the new carpet retains its looks for longer with all those rounds of partying, construction, remodelling, moving around the furniture, your pet scampering around , hard to remove stains, your kids choosing to do their clay modeling on the floor, dirt, dust and the mud that your children are bringing in from the playfield, a protection for your new carpet is a dire necessity.
Plastic Carpet Covers
Plastic carpet protection rolls, designed specifically for carpets, help keep the carpets spanking clean. The self-adhesive polyethylene carpet protection films act as protective layer, preventing dust and dirt from the underside of the shoes, pet litters, droppings, etc. from entering into the carpet weaving and staining the fibers. Unparalleled as a hygiene-factor, the plastic carpet covers save you all the trouble of cleaning. Moreover, since the covers almost cancel out all maintenance expenses, you will make some pecuniary gains too.
The 3-mil non-slip, super-tough plastic carpet protection films do not rip and dent easily (withstanding excessive traffic, high heels and even scratches from animal claws). Hence, polyethylene carpet covers can be used for both domestic and commercial purposes. Use it in your home, in your vehicle, in your work place and reap the benefits.
You can also use as protection cover to the carpets you use in staircases or in the floors when remodeling projects are on and see how well keeps away building materials, paints, etc. from soiling the carpets. You can also use carpet protection film in your office, some areas in your shop or that of your car (other vehicle).
This is not all. The other plus points of plastic carpet protection cover films are yet to come. The zero-maintenance carpet protectors are very easy to apply. Available in two types of rolls – the regular wound and the reverse wound – the carpet protection films are self-adhesive, i.e., they are coated with some specially formulated low-tack adhesive. Unwind the roll slowly and follow it up by spreading and pasting it to the surface.
The polyethylene protections for carpets, however, are temporary. They need changing every 45 days. Changing the protective covering is as easy as applying it. You need just to peel them up. Here it will be worthwhile to mention that the plastic carpet cover protectors are meant especially for synthetic carpets.
The adhesive may react adversely with other surfaces and coverings (in many cases adhesive transferring has been observed). With synthetic carpets, this transmission hardly occurs. Even in rare cases, the adhesive can be removed using steam extraction method.
The plastic carpet covers come as pressure sensitive water-based self-adhesive mechanisms designed to hold up to the rigors of heavy treading and trampling, pouncing and pricking, dragging and dropping for up to 45 days. To elaborate, top-notch carpet covers serve in heavy traffic areas where they protect the carpet underneath from the wear and tear of walking and running.
Plastic Carpet covers are durable enough to withstand the weight of heavy furniture and also bulky objects being dragged over them. Some carpet covers are puncture-resistant meaning that they can very well withstand the high heels jabbing at it or your doggy pawing away at it.
Plastic Carpet covers are easy to install and easier to remove, without the fear of the glue sticking to the carpet surface. With the right kind of roller it is easy to lay in a cover without getting the unsightly and unsafe (trust your son to trip over it) creases. Most carpet covers are anti-slip too, making them perfect for homes with aged persons and active kids.
Protection during Constructions
Your carpets go through a lot of stress with construction work going around it. So, when you are painting the walls of your rooms, your carpet also gets a fair share of the paint splashes. Or if you have some welding works going on, it will take only a few offhand sparks that may cause the carpet fibers to singe.
The top class carpet covers are anti-skid and anti-trip, making them ideally suited during construction. Being puncture proof means that these carpet covers can withstand the pricking of heavy boots, accidental drops of sharp-pointed tools and even your furniture being dragged all around the room.
