Rug Pads - Grip, Protect, Support for Your Area Rugs

A rug pad, also known as cushion or underlay, describes any material placed beneath an area rug which provides grip, protection, support and softness when walked upon. In addition, it has acoustical benefits and can extend the life of area rugs.

A strange, little–known fact is that rug wear starts at the bottom and works its way up. Foot traffic creates friction on the lower–most fibers of the area rug, resulting in snagging, thinning and aging. A rug pad helps keep the area rug in place and prevents premature wear.

A rug pad aerates the rug helping to prevent mildew and mold which prematurely ages and stains the area rug and makes it smell. Aeration helps in keeping the rug clean when cleaning the area rug such as vacuuming. It also adds to the cushioning effect making walking more comfortable and prevents the rug from wrinkling.

A non–slip rug pad is the answer to rugs on tile, laminate, hardwood, or other hard surface floors which are prone to slipping because of lack of friction. A rug pad holds the area rug down preventing the sides from curling up and becoming a tripping hazard. Rug pads are a great way for the safety of everyone walking on rugs placed on slippery floors.

To summarize, the advantages in using rug pads are as follows:

  • It extends the life of the rug.
  • It prevents staining, formation of mold and helps keep the area rug clean.
  • It makes the area rug safer by holding it securely on slippery floors.
  • It deadens sound and makes walking a more comfortable experience.

Important Note: Before using a rug pad, consult with a flooring professional as some rug pads could damage certain types of area rugs and may also stain or discolor certain types of flooring. Always refer to the area rug and flooring manufacturer’s warranty information and recommendations before purchasing and using any rug pad.
