Default scaffolding over hardwood floors

Do you still put down Ram Board or cardboard protection when using a scaffold if the hardwood is going to get re-finished? Will the scaffolding actually put deep scratches or dents in the floor without it?

I would put down luan if it were me, any scratches or gouges and the client could hold you responsible. Get their hardwood refinished free.

Felt paper then card board. Make sure the wheels on staging are the clear ones that are soft for interior work. Dont pull yourself along while on staging.

If you talking a baker frame or two, that might be OK. If we're going four frames high with mason's frames or walkthroughs with decks and all the trimmings, we're putting down more than canvas. Typically, a layer of hardboard.
