Did You Know cushion Fiber Pads Wear Out.

Rug pads take a beating under your oriental rugs on hard surfaces. Padding absorbs the force & energy from foot traffic and, over time, loses its cussioning and nonslip properties. Rubber backings dry out and Loosen their grip on smooth surfaces such as hardwood floors, minimizing their ability to keep your rug in place.

How To Choose The Right Rug Pad Cushion 



- Thin Pad

 Our thin low profile pad is ideal for thin area rugs. It helps keep rugs from buckling and prevents slips when the floor underneath is hardwood or laminate in a high-traffic entry room or hallway. Also a great choice when door clearance is an issue. The surface of our pads grips the back of your rug and helps combat carpet shit or buckling. 


-Thick Pad

A thick carpet padding provides a softer feel underfoot and extra cushioning and insulation qualities and protects rugs and floors from heavy furniture. A thick carpet pad provides more sound absorption in a living room, upstairs common area, or hallway, absorbing sound and vibrations from foot traffic, TV, and music transmitted through floors, tile, and hard surfaces.

How To Measure For A Rug Pad

For oriental carpets and machine area rugs, rug pad size should be smaller than the carpet. We suggest 1-2" in from the sides and end of the body of the carpet and it's easy to easily trimmed.

For example, a throw rug size is 8x10 so the pad size would be 7.10" x 9.10"
