Seek advice of protecting floor and cabinets during remodeling.

I am having my house remodeled. Kitchen won't be remodeled and the cabinets in the hallway bathroom won't be changed. I found the edge of my kitchen cabinets and one of the drawers in the bathroom got scratched, and the floor had one scratch. Is there any good material that I can buy and apply by myself to protect cabinets and floor? The contractor did not do a good job in protecting the floor and cabinets.

Thank you very much.

Put homasote or sound deadening board on the floors and wrap bubble wrap on the cabinets maybe, taping it with blue painters tape.

I tape down red rosin paper, usually 2 layers, to protect floors where we'll be walking.

Lay 1/8" masonite on top of that for heavy duty protection.

For cabinets, furniture blankets draped over the countertop and face of the cabinet, weighed down with masonite or plywood to protect the countertop.

Tape off with plastic over that, if dust control is also a concern.

You can demolish stucco with Hilti hammers and not worry about a thing.
