Do I need a rug pad?
Rug and floor protection
Rug pads help prevent irreparable damages, blemishes, and scratches to your floor while protecting floors from erosive dirt and debris that naturally accumulates underneath rugs. The use of a high quality rug pad prolongs the life, beauty, and strength of your rug and serves as protective buffer against everyday friction that eventually degrades the quality of your rug.
Cushioned rug pads offer a comfortable yet durable buffer that provides a plush and soft area underfoot. Rug pads keep your rug anchored flat on its surface without bunching, knotting, or wrinkling. Cushioned pads also help block the transference of sound from your feet to the floor.
Rug pads prevent stubborn throw rugs from slipping and sliding in high traffic areas. Non-slip pads are designed to adhere your rug to its surface in order to avoid bunching or knotting that could cause accidents or falls.
Rug pads promote and encourage airflow between your flooring and rug. This allows for particles of dust or dirt to be easily swept up while vacuuming while leaving space for both your floor and rug to breathe. Proper airflow facilitation prevents debris build-up, which is essential in the conservation of flooring and the durability of your rug.
