Rug pads are not absolutely necessary, but are generally encouraged under area rugs on all types of surfaces. Our rug pads meet many criteria and are suitable for use on both carpeting and hard surfaces. On hard wood surfaces, place the rubber side face down over the flooring to keep your rug from slipping. When layering onto carpeting, lay the fiber side down to keep your area rug in place on soft surfaces. Rug pads help with the health and longevity of your area rugs, also buffering sound and provide comfort under foot.
Rug Pads are not available in unusual shapes. Cut-outs for fireplaces, radiators, or other exceptions are best done on-site using a sharp blade or scissors.
Note: Many of our natural fiber and synthetic rugs are backed with natural latex. The performance of natural latex backing varies depending upon environmental factors in a room. For example, natural latex can break down or start to crumble if the room is dry. There are many types of finishes and sealants used on wood floors, such as oil-based, solvent-based and water-based polyurethane. Natural latex can react with a floor finish when exposed to moisture, cleaning detergents, soaps or other liquids. How it reacts depends on the floor finish and the substance it comes in contact with. If the finish becomes porous, sticking can occur. We recommend the use of rug pads under natural latex for these reasons.Specifications
