So I’ve removed almost all the carpet in my apartment in preparation of getting new flooring. There’s just exposed concrete all over my home. This interim state of my floors has left me with a new revelation. I need to be careful about dropping things on my floor now.
With carpet and an underpad I was able to drop electronics and other things on the floor and not really worry about them. I’ve dropped phones, game controllers, tablets, and remote controls on my carpet without a single problem. I can’t do that anymore. Even though I have a case on my phone, the concrete is unforgiving. I’ve already had a few close calls where I almost dropped my phone.
I also understand that even when I get my floors installed (vinyl plank? laminate?), things aren’t gonna get that much better. I guess people are just more careful when their floors are hard?
