Custom Size Rug Pads
Most of our natural fiber floor coverings come with a non-slip latex backing. We recommend using a rug pad to prevent any damage to your floor caused by your floor reacting to the 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. Our rug pads work on both carpeting and hard surfaces: place the rubber side face down over hard flooring to keep your rug from slipping; lay the fiber side face down over carpet to keep your area rug in place and prevent damage to the yarns of the carpet.
Rug pads are 1/4" thick and mold- and mildew-resistant. The maximum width is 12'.
