It’s vital to have a quality pad underneath your rug. A quality pad can add to thedurability of your rug by acting as a “shock absorber” for foot traffic and furniture and lessening the wear on the rug’s fibers. It also adds safety to your home by keeping the rug in place minimizing slipping, buckling, or traveling across the hard floor. Keep in mind that the cheap latex pads also will discolor your beautiful wood floor and cause you to have to refinish your floor, and sometimes they do permanent damage. Our padding will not damage your floor, and we custom cut our rug pad to fit your specific rug. Having a quality pad will keep your rug from showing the severe wear we often see in rugs; they are well worth the investment to protect your beautiful rugs.
