Try and get some mats that are used in lobbies of office buildings that have marble floors. They use the at the entrances in the winter and rainy days to dry off peoples shoes. They are heavey and lay flat. They replace them periodically. Talk to the maintenance peolle, you need them for a school project you are helping out with. I got some from a Federal Bank. For free, but had to have a slip to get out of the loading dock. LOL
Also mite try some rolled rubber from home cheapo.

why do you want to do anything, if you havnt fixed the leaks yet?????

the only thing you want to use on the floor now is a giant drip pan

(right after you scrub it with some cleaner and a broom)

I assumed you had fixed the leaks and were moving on with your life

fix the leaks, then clean/cover the floor
