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.
