TAPING OF FLOOR PROTECTION TO HARDWOOD NOT RECOMMENDED - Frosted finish products especially susceptible to damage.

We have had some incidents recently of installers reporting damage to the finish of a newly installed floor. The installers were using green, or painters' masking tape to hold sheets of floor protection in place after the installation. The sheets of protection were taped directly to the hardwood flooring. When the tape was removed, it stripped away some of the floor's finish with it. When using a form of protection (eg, cardboard sheeting), do not tape the sheets directly to the floor; tape them to each other.
