Unfortunately, many people overlook the importance of selecting the right pads when they 're buying a rug.This is a mistake because pads have a specific job to do, and you shouldn't underestimate their importance. Make sure that they are the right ones for the rug and how it will be used. The wrong pad, even if it's free, is no bargain.
The basic function of padding is to protect the rug from the pressure that's applied to it. This is why it is important to have the right kind of padding. If the padding is too soft, the foundation of the rug will stretch when you walk on it or set furniture on it, and the rug will wear faster. A pad also serves to muffle noise, it helps to keep the rug from moving, it protects the back of the knots against a hard or rough surface, and it elevates the rug to make the pile surface look deeper. Finally, using the proper pad will provide an air space between the carpet and the floor, and that will make vacuuming the rug much easier and more effective.
We carry two types of pads, non-skid natural rubber and jute quality. Our non-skid pads are used under rug sizes of 6 x 9 and smaller and all runners. Our jute quality pads are recommended for rug sizes of 6 x 9 and larger. We custom cut all our pads to size.
