3 innovative uses for Sliprotex

Sliprotex is the dust sheet of the future but it boasts a wealth of uses above and beyond the ordinary catching of paint drips. Sliprotex is a unique fabric offering an absorbent upper layer and waterproof backing – making it perfect for catching and containing liquid. Plus, this fabric can be used again and again.

While we recommend this particularly for delivery men and tradespeople such as plumbers, it can also be used for a variety of household tasks. Here are 3 things you could use Sliprotex for in your daily life.

1.The ideal doormat

Due to its absorbent qualities, a square of Sliprotex makes a fantastic doormat – especially in wet weather conditions. Households with dogs will benefit as moisture is drawn from wet paws as they pass over the threshold, and its a great way to stop the muddy trail from wet wellies too.

Baby food

  1. Weaning

Lets face it, babies and toddlers are messy creatures, especially when it comes to feeding. If, like lots of households, your décor came along before your little one, you might have chosen light flooring and beige carpets – not the ideal complement for puréed carrot. When your toddler starts to throw food from the highchair with gay abandon a square of Sliprotex can save you countless hours scrubbing the floor. It’ll absorb the moisture from the food, protecting your floors, and it’s self-adherent when placed on carpets or wood so it won’t slide across the floor.

  1. Cleaning

Whether you’re emptying the vents in your washing machine, cleaning your oven, or bleaching the bathroom, Sliprotex can protect your floors from unslightly mess, waste water and cleaning products.

For tradespeople and home-owners alike, a square of Sliprotex goes a long, long way! Talk to us about your requirements today.

wet weather dust sheets

Why are dust sheets intrinsic to your business’ reputation

During the winter months rainy skies churn up the earth creating muddy slippery surfaces both outside and in. For delivery and tradesmen this can be a problem as their jobs entail a great deal of walking inside and out again to pick up tools, products and more. In this situation, wet weather can pose several problems. Firstly, it means you often can’t help but tread mud and dirt into the house; secondly, walking the wet indoors causes slip risks.

Dirty carpets and damaged floors

All things considered, dirty carpets may seem like a trivial issue; however consider the cost of replacing one and you could run into hundreds of pounds. Neither you nor your customer wants to have to pay out for this.

Dustsheets for wet weather

But beyond the damage to your business in terms of the cost of compensation is the harm this can cause to your company’s reputation. In general, consumers are much happier to talk about the faults a company has than its benefits.

Just type into Google “delivery men damaged floor” and you will find hundreds of examples. In several cases, a good dust sheet could have prevented or minimised damage.

Slip risks

Perhaps even more serious is the threat of slippery floors, which can be a nightmare when it comes to the health and safety of both your delivery team and the public. Wet weather and popular wood or laminate flooring together can be a bit of a nightmare for delivery and tradesmen, as well as the general public.

If you slip on wet flooring you can cause damage to the household interior, the products you are carrying and injury to yourself. Slippery floors can also be a hazard for the public, which could lead to costly claims against your company and damage your reputation for quality service.

No one can take all the risks out of life but the right dust sheet could minimise or in some cases even prevent damage to property or injury. If you are seeking protective floor coverings for your business speak to us – we’ll help you source the dust sheet that best meets your needs.


Beat the snow with Sliprotex

Nearly the entire country has woken up to a beautiful winter wonderland in the past week. But while snow might look pretty but it can play havoc with our day to day lives, especially when you’re walking in and out of doors.

If you’re a deliveryman or a builder you may feel than you’re traipsing wet footprints into other people’s homes. And if your customers have laminate flooring the wet can cause slips and falls.

Sometimes a regular dustsheet just won’t cut the mustard that’s why we’ve introduced the revolutionary new Sliprotex dustsheets! As we’ve said before, Sliprotex is a non-slip, water absorbent material which allows you to protect your customers’ flooring and stay safe on the job – even in the snowy weather!!
