Are you planing to purchase new rugs for your home? Then you should probably consider purchasing rug pads to keep you new rugs in place and make your flooring a little softer, especially if you are using slippery area rugs over hardwood floors.

Why invest in rug pads?

Rug pads are an important investment in homes where area rugs are used over tile or hardwood flooring to prevent accidents caused by slippage. The need for rug pads is even greater in homes where high quality area rugs made with a smooth felt bottom – which makes them very slippery – are used.

Non-Slip  Rug Pad

Rugs pads are designed with non-slip materials that create a bond between the floor and the rug thus keeping it anchored. Moreover, they also provide a barrier for dust and dirt from the floor which extends the life span of area rugs and makes it easier to vacuum them out.

Rugs pads are also the ideal addition to your living space flooring if you want to create a softer, more comfortable area in your home. It becomes a lot more comfortable to perform exercises like yoga when your floor has a soft rug pad beneath it.

Features of rug pads

A high quality rug pad should be resistant to mold and bacteria, which means that your rugs will remain fresh and clean between vacuuming sessions. You can also cut the rug pads to different sizes and they are reversible so that you can face any of the sides downwards.

Cleaning a rug pad is a fairly straightforward exercise; all you need is some warm water and mild soap to clean the surfaces. High quality rug pads are typically made with a vinyl-coated polyester interior which helps secure your floor rugs.

Carpets are another great way of reducing slippage, but Rug pads can still be used to help clean area rugs and prolong their lifespan.

What to consider when ordering rug pads

Ideally, your rug pad needs to be hidden under you carpet. This means that the roof pad has to be slightly smaller in size. But if you can’t quite find the ideal size, then you can still order a size that is close to what you need then trim it to the right size.

If you use a number of small rugs or runners and need to install rug pads beneath them, then you should consider ordering a single large rug pad and cutting it to fit under the small area rugs. While this is very cost effective, you’ll have to set aside some time to do it properly.

However, if you do not wish to create your own custom-made rug pads, then you should ideally order you area rugs complete with matching rug pads. This will not only help you save time and effort during installation, but also ensure that you only spend you money on rug pads whose size matches that of your area rugs.

What is the cost of rug pads

The price of rug pads varies depending on the quality as well as where you order them from. However, high quality rug pads generally retail at around one dollar per square foot. While this may initially seem expensive, it is a cost saving investment in the long since the pads will protect your more expensive area rugs, decreasing the cost of maintaining them and prolonging their life span.
