Floor cloth, as the name suggests, is a cloth used as either a floor covering, or a cloth used to clean your floor with.

Now, pre primed canvas floor cloth is commonly used for numerous amounts of projects and applications.
Pre-primed canvas floor cloth has little exception to regular styles of floor cloths or drop cloths. While pre-primed canvas floor cloths have an advantage being coated in acrylic gesso, they are still used similarly to uncoated canvas floor cloths.
Floor cloth canvas starts off as most canvas does. Canvas itself has been a staple fabric for centuries. Manufactured as early as the 13th century, canvas was initially made into practical applications like sails, tents, and bags. After its practical uses however, canvas fabric was also used for painting.
Canvas is made with woven fibers, usually cotton or linen and weaved in a plain style. Tighter woven canvas is duck canvas. Pre-primed canvas coated in gesso (while used for different things) is usually used as artist canvas. The gesso coat exists so that the paint or material being used by the artist doesn’t deteriorate the canvas itself and it can last through time.

The coating on pre-primed canvas floor cloth acts as a protecter and sealer. It helps a canvas floor cloth stay viable for longer than an untreated canvas floor cloth.
While unprimed canvas floor cloth is still paintable or used for various projects, pre-primed canvas floor cloth will typically outlast unprimed canvas. Unprimed canvas floor cloth is still great for things like canvas rugs and drop cloths, but they will deteriorate over a period of time a bit more quickly than pre-primed canvas.
