In avoiding paint splatters or even spills, several painters use covers to prevent staining the floor with paint. Most DIY painting activities just use inexpensive and convenient newspapers, but in the end does not assure for the floor to be mess-free. Others use plastic or even cardboards. There are also some that uses plastic over cardboards to ensure floor coverage. However, SPPI residential painters have known that the best anti-splatter floor cover is a canvas dropcloth.
The reason behind is simple: Canvas is safe to use. It does not rip easily and is very durable. It lays flat and steady on the floor, preventing accidental slips and assures full coverage of the area. It can also be used to cover not just the floors but anything you don’t want to be covered with paint. Another plus factor is that canvas dropcloths can be folded easily around the corners and doorways. And best of all, you don’t have to throw them away after use. You can reuse your canvas dropcloth many times. And you can even use them in non-painting related projects.
