What Are Rug Pads?

What Are Pads Used For?

Chances are you have a rug somewhere in your home that bunches up or slides around when you step on it.  The simple solution to this dilemma is a rug pad, designed to keep you, your family & your guests safe from tripping and falling over a loose rug.

Rug pads help rugs stay in place, keeping them protected and looking great.  They also create additional space and padding beneath a rug, keeping the flooring underneath clean and adding extra cushion and comfort.  The thicker the rug pad, the more comfort and protection you gain.

There Are Two Types Of Area Rug Pads

Rug pads offer different advantages depending on the material from which they’re made.

General rug pads are made from a slip-resistant webbing and are designed to prevent rugs from sliding out from underneath you when you step on them.  Order a roll and cut it to size, or order a pre-cut pad in the specific size you need.

Premium rug pads are made from felt or polyester blends and coated to help them grip your floor.  These offer extra protection against movement, helping to prevent scratches and adding comfortable padding.
