... Anyone know where I can find slip-on booties to cover our work boots..I have a job in a newly carpeted home,(white carpet...of course)and don't want my guys walking around bootless,for insurance/OSHA reasons,as well as the odor factor..we'll be going in and out of the house,as well as being in the attic(naturally)..and it'd be a big P.I.T.A.to have to take shoes on and off..I know they make them,..similar to what interns and doctors might use in a sterile environment..

I buy them off ebay. You can get them from lots of online sources. Some Home Depot's also have them.

Or, you could put down runners on the carpet. I've seen them in plastic, and in something like kraft paper. I don't know where you would get them, though.

Maybe a local medical supply? If not ........
One of my customers gets them From These Guys for their cleanroom.
$54.50 for 150 pair.

I just purchased some this weekend from a local hardware store chain (OSH) and they were in the paint department. I haven't looked for them a HD but I would try their paint department or a local paint store.

Oh how I hate "booties". If you're worried about accidents with guys going around in thier socks, think about what it will be like when they fall from a ladder from a slippery bootie, or trip over them as they walk. (Un-deniable comp' claim!) I have had some close calls on ladders with them, and refuse to wear them!

Normally, the GC will put site protection in contract for carpet and floor protection on-site. It is after all a "work" site, even if it is someones house. If it is work we do on our own, we put it in contrct. There a thousand ways to do it, but covering the floor for protective reasons is going to save in the long run. IMO! Booties are just plain impeding to production. Ladders, tools, debries, spilled paint etc. dropping on the floor will do far more damage than foot traffic. Especially, if going in and out of an attic. Most GC's we work with will do the whole work area in craft paper, than thermoply over that. Pull it up when the job is done, save the thermoply for the next job, toss the paper. We use this stuff called "carpetech"(?), its plastic stick down runner, and good old fashion drop-cloths to suppliment it, and some good house-keeping at the end of the day. Add the cost to the job...

We use stuff simular to this: http://www.carpetbarrier.com/carpetbarrier.htm

HD has them in the paint department. Myself my boots just slip off so I don't wear them walking thru a non work area in a clean house.

I can tell you from experience that cleanroom booties are a royal pain in the... [Linked Image]

They're also not the most stable things to be walking around in.
