What Are the Benefits of Rug Pad?

Whether your area rug is a thin hand knotted wool rug, or a thick tufted rug, the right rug pad under your area rugs can prolong the life of your area rugs and save the floors underneath from damage.

Rug pads have many benefits. For starters, it prevents the area rug from slipping by holding it in place. It also absorbs most of the shock from foot traffic, preventing the fibers from being crushed and adding to the rug’s longevity. A rug pad also prevents grime and dirt from accumulating under the rug.

Helps to Enhance the Look and Feel of Your Area Rugs

A properly sized rug pad prevents grout lines from showing through and keeps the uniformity of your rug while adding cushion and softness.

Helps to Protect Your Floors

Our rug pad will help reduce friction between your rug and floor saving wear on your flooring. Our Moisture Barrier Protection helps prevent spills and pet accidents from soaking through to your flooring which can cause permanent damage.

Helps to Prevent Slips and Falls

Our non-slip rug pads help keep your rugs flat and in place reducing the risk of tripping over wrinkled rugs. Even area rugs that are anchored by furniture can move and shift, causing them to buckle or bunch up, which can increase falling risks.
Reduces Noise and Adds Comfort

Add plushness and comfort to your rugs. Choose from several thickness options to suite your needs. The extra padding of a rug pad also absorbs sound, which reduces the sound in your home making it quieter. This can be particularly useful in apartments or homes with hardwood or tile floors, where noise can easily travel.
