Benifits of Rug Pads 


 ❈ Rug pads help keep area rugs in place so they don't move and stretch. Stretching often leads to tears in Kilims( flatweaves) and thin woven pile rugs. It's part of the process that wears area rugs.

❈ Rug pads improve safety by reducing the possibility of tripping and slippage on slick floors such as hardwood and tile.

❈ Rug pads cushion the impact of foot traffic. Foot traffic combined with soil in a carpet's foundation is another element that causes wear. The abrasion of soils in the foundation of rugs is reduced by the shock-absorbing effect of rug padding. Pads absorb some of the force from foot traffic walking on rugs and help extend the life of rugs in high-traffic use areas.

❈ Rug pads improve sound absorption in a room from foot traffic and other household noises. 

❈ Rug padding provides a barrier for liquid spills such as drinks and pet accidents and also reduces the possibility of these liquids going through the rug and warping or discoloring hardwood floors.

How do I measure my oriental rug for a pad?
