Protecting floor latex prior to laying lino

    Hi Folks,

    My builders keep not turning up and now things are starting to happen in the wrong order.

    The kitchen has very slippery tiles that I am having levelled with latex prior to fitting lino over the top. There is no issue with latexing over the tiles as they are level and well laid.

    Originally I was going to lay the lino 2 days later after it had cured. Now the kitchen fitter and sparky have to come back to finish the kitchen and I know they are going to leave **** all over the floor from chiselling the walls, sawdust, clods of plaster etc.

    I would like to keep the latex as clean as possible prior to laying the lino (which is not yet with me). What is best? Cardboard rolls of floor protector you stick down with masking tape? Or can I use Roll n Stroll for Hard Surfaces? Or is that best not used on a latex floor?

    Thanks for your advice.

    Thanks! Wasn't sure if the sticky backing to roll n stroll would be bad for newly cured latex, or impossible to remove.
