Minimize Floor Damage With This Tip

carpet tape from tapeworks.comDouble faced carpet tape has an extra aggressive adhesive. That’s how it manages to stand up to heavy foot traffic without slipping.

When it’s time to remove the carpet, and the tape, this extra stickiness can lead to damage on floors and other painted surfaces.

When taking up the tape, pull it up gently, at a 45 degree angle to the floor. Watch the floor, and if you begin to see the paint coming press it back down, cut the tape and start with a fresh edge.

Taking a little extra time with tape removal can make a big difference in how long your floor stands up to constant re-taping.
