Renovation projects are exciting because they represent positive change and refreshing new starts. However, if you aren’t careful, they also have the potential to ruin your interiors, unfortunately.
One tilted can of paint or a dropped power tool on the floor is all it takes to damage your floor, which is exactly why drop cloths are so indispensable for renovations.
A Complete Solution Against Painting Hazards to Your Interiors
A spilled can might be a comparatively rare instance but drips from the painter’s brush while painting your walls and ceiling is pretty much expected. Forget newspapers and thin cloths to cover up your floors against spots and stains. Rely on canvas drop cloths to provide complete protection, as they do not allow any liquids to permeate onto your expensive flooring below.
Drop Cloths Can Just as Easily Protect Your Furniture
It’s true that these are primarily used for covering up the floor, but they are just as good for protecting furniture as they are for protecting the floors. It may actually make the renovation job a lot easier and faster if the contractor or the homeowner (in case it’s a DIY project) does not have to move every piece of heavy furniture out of the room.
Trimaco Smart Grip Drop Cloths Protect against Messy Cleanups with Superb Grip
Trimaco Smart Grip drop cloth use dual-layer absorbent canvas, which is roughly 80% more slip-resistant than even 8oz canvas, in addition to having a leak & slip-resistant poly backing for added protection against all kind of water and paint damage.
These will stay in place against most expected forms of resistance, while even providing a bit of protection against minor blunt force traumas. That being said, in case sharp objects and heavy blunt force trauma is a serious concern, you may need to check out Trimaco heavy-duty butyl protection options for your floors.
You Can Use Them Even After the Renovations
Drop cloths make an excellent canvas for artwork and they can even be used as a durable tablecloth. Canvas drop cloths keep the leaves in place as you rake the garden, and they are a lifesaver if you have untrained pets at home!
Therefore, if you have any of that protective clothing left over from the previous project at home, there will almost certainly be a use for it that it was not meant to be used for initially.
Perhaps the only tricky part about drop cloths is that we need to be careful since they are not all created equally. Therefore, always make sure what you are buying is manufactured to handle the kind of protection your workspace or the renovation area needs. However, dual-layer canvas drop cloths with slip-resistance are pretty much good for protecting your flooring and furniture against almost any paint, water or liquid induced accidents within a domestic environment.
