Answer: 
Thin films coated with adhesives are made from oil and plastics. Heat and light (specifically UV) breakdown these components into the carpet in a way that makes it difficult to remove unless you go fiber by fiber.

Answer: 
I had this on berber carpet for about 6 weeks (over 30 days recommended). i kept forgetting to remove it. it did leave a slight sticky residue everywhere and now I'm trying to find a way to remove that! If removed in the time limit, it may be fine. Also if you have some kind of protectant on your carpet, it will probably remove better. My carpet is quite old.

I bought this because I'd moved into a new apartment (first tenant--everything new) and needed a place to do some painting projects. The carpet is short (but not like a berber). This film is very sticky, and it held the carpet well. Nothing seeped or soaked through it (I overlapped a couple inches to ensure any spilt paint wouldn't go through a "crack").

I bought this because I'd moved into a new apartment (first tenant--everything new) and needed a place to do some painting projects. The carpet is short (but not like a berber). This film is very sticky, and it held the carpet well. Nothing seeped or soaked through it (I overlapped a couple inches to ensure any spilt paint wouldn't go through a "crack"). I tried not to walk on it a lot, but, yes, it makes a weird popping sound when you do. I vacuumed it, too, but use a small stick vac, held by hand, and turned off the "carpet brush."
I left it on for much longer than the recommended limit. It pulled the carpet when I removed it, but I don't think it did any damage (didn't loosen it in some way). I went slowly, and held the carpet down close to the film. For the larger roll available here, reviewers commented that it left a sticky residue. I didn't have that problem--the carpet seems fine.
It worked so well on the carpet, I tried it on the wall--there's a few places where I need to protect the paint. A small piece of film didn't pull anything off, and I put a small strip up and left it for a couple weeks. It came off without removing any paint or leaving any residue. I did the section I needed done, and checked it every few weeks--always okay. It's been up for several months.
So...I would THINK it would be okay on tile. But I'd test it, as I did with the paint on drywall. If you're going to be walking on it, that might make a difference. Obviously, I'm not walking on the wall/applying a lot of pressure to the film.
As others noted, it can be a challenge to "install." Not so bad on carpet, but I tried to get it smooth and even on the wall (for the appearance), and that was REALLY hard. Apparently, they "wind" the larger rolls the opposite way, and that would probably make it easier. It also would probably be easier with 2 people; as a reviewer said, once it sticks to itself, you're done with that piece--just cut it off and start again, because you can't get it unstuck from itself.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Protects, but don't leave on too long! I used to this to protect on my carpet during an open house for selling. I had just cleaned the carpet. The package says take it off in 30 days, and I just want to warn people to make sure you take it off in 30 days, and I would never even leave it on that long again. I think I probably left it on about 45 days. My stupidity cost me. It left a fine sticky film on the whole carpet, and at the place near the dining room table that the chair legs rested on sometimes, it left very sticky circles, and in a short time dirt stuck to it and it looked terrible. It would not wash off with water. It came clean, but within a day or so got dirty again. I spot-washed it with goo gone to get the stickiness off, and then simple green to get the greasy goo from that off. I'll update my review if that didn't work. So use the product, but take it off as soon as possible. I saw on another website that if the weather is warm you cannot leave it on the full 30 days. July 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice product. Works as advertised. Had various re-painting and construction work going on at property. Thought we scheduled carpet install after most work would have been finished, but that wasn't the case. Needed to protect new carpet from a bit of traffic, which went on for close to another 3-4 weeks in some areas. Even stuck some down on the luxury vinyl floor in the basement, since there ended up being even more work that ended up needing to be done there. Just pulled it all up yesterday for the photographer to shoot the place. Came off the carpets without any trouble. No residue left behind, other than where a vacuum roller had shredded it in a half-dozen places (someone using the attachments to remove drywall dust, and roller doesn't stop on this particular vacuum). The high traffic made it more difficult to remove from the vinyl, as it had a few holes worn into it. And the only place that had residue on the vinyl was by the basement sliding glass door, where moisture had seeped through holes and gotten underneath. The residue came off the vinyl easily water and a gentle scrubbing. Really hadn't intended on leaving on vinyl more than a week, since I know the product isn't meant for that purpose, so I was happy that it was not a bigger deal to remove after 3-4 weeks. The only minor downside of the product is that there's not a lot of weight to the 50 ft. roll, so getting each new section started was a little challenging on my own. When I had previously used a 200 ft. roll of another product, I could peel the edges, give a little shake, and the roll would pull down more easily on its own (because of the extra weight).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by love love love This product is perfect to keep your carpet protected in the winter time when people are tracking snow and dirt through your living room Not to mention when work men come through the house I used it for the path from my front door to the kitchen. Works perfectly January 25, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Saving my carpet! I have white carpet going up my stairs, and I am having work done on my upstairs bathroom. This makes it so much easier for everyone!!!! It can be a little tricky to put on the steps, like a huge, extra sticky roll of tape! Now that it is on I am not having any problems with it staying on. This is much better than worrying about the carpet being damaged. June 16, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works great, durable, relatively easy to install We used this material to cover some just-cleaned carpet for an estate sale we were holding. The material can be a bit tricky to install at first, but once you understand how to unroll it (and realize that if it starts to stick to itself while unrolling, it can't be "unstuck") installation is relatively easy. The stuff is pretty durable, It took 3 solid days of foot traffic with hundreds of sneakers, shoes and work boots and didn't tear anywhere. Just be aware that as you're installing it, and as people walk on it, it can make a noise somewhat similar to muffled popcorn popping. It's not a problem (the plastic is just adjusting to the carpet it's stuck on) but it does sound weird. Removal is pretty easy, too.Getting the big wad of the sticky plastic into a trash bag, though, might be a bit of a challenge. April 3, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good product Worked just like I needed it to. Was painting my base boards and was able to avoid the carpet, a pain to get a snug fit under the base boards for it occasionally got holes, but saved my carpet nonetheless! September 3, 2014
