5 reasons NOT to use plastic sheeting for temporary surface protection

1. Non-breathable – plastic sheeting can cause patterns on curing floors
2. Environmentally unfriendly – plastic sheeting is a chemical-based product
3. Condensation – plastic sheeting traps moisture causing condensation, preventing the natural curing process of surfaces including tile grout and oiled floors 
4. Flimsiness – plastic sheeting is thin, tearing easily and flimsy, requiring several layers to cope with construction traffic
5. Slippery – plastic sheeting becomes unsafe and slippery if wet, causing accidents on site
