Reasons Why You Need a Rug Pad
If you've stepped on a rug that's slid or shifted under your feet, you know the value of a good rug pad underneath! Rug pads stabilize area rugs, which keeps them from becoming trip hazards.
Additionally, rug pads add a layer of protection and comfort between the area rug and the flooring beneath it. There are two types of rug pads.
General rug pads
These are made from slip-resistant webbed material and do a good job of preventing your rug from sliding when you step on it. You can order in a roll and cut it to size or order a pre-cut pad in the specific size you need.
Premium felt or polyester-blend pads
These rug pads are coated to help them stick to the floor, offering extra protection against movement and slippage. They also help to prevent scratches under the rug and are best for adding comfortable padding.
