How to protect your floors when moving

Your rating: None
Does the thought of having dirty removal men's boots treading all over your new house fill you with dread? You can protect all of your floors with a low slip self adhesive protection film. This sticks to the carpet and floors and removes trip hazards sometimes associated with dust sheets, especially on stairs. The film can be vacuumed, mopped or cleaned, will not leave a sticky residue when removed and will last up to 4 weeks.
What you'll need: 
Self adhesive protection film
Walk around your new home and make a note of what the floor surface is? i.e. Carpet, Tiles, wooden floor, vinyl etc..
Purchase the correct film for the type of surface. Different film is available for each surface type.
Carefully lay the film as a walkway throughout the house.
After the job is finished just peel up the film and recycle. Admire the still clean floors!
Lay the film carefully as you may cause rucking which could be a trip hazzard.
If you have a large surface area to cover purchase a dispenser.
Make sure the correct film is used on the correct surface.
