Non Slip Rug Pads

Non slip rug pads offer a degree of stability and protection to prevent skidding.

Area rugs dress up any room. On hard surface floors, they provide warmth, color and cushion for the feet. On carpeted surfaces, area rugs protect sections of the carpet itself and also provide a shift in texture and color. Area rugs can have a mind of their own, however, and sometimes want to snake about the room at will. Non slip rug pads provide stability and tracking for area rugs so they will stay in the spot you intended.

Rug pads for hardwood floors also provide protection against the transfer of color between area rug and carpet in a carpeted room. Non-slip rug pads reduce the piling that can occur from the friction of the area rug against the carpet fibers. Many people are unaware that wear on area rugs begins from the underside and travels upward. A non skid rugĀ  pad provides protection at the point of origin for damage. On all surfaces, rug pads supply extra cushioning for your feet as you walk across them and diminish your risk of slipping on the rug itself.

Non slip rug pads also provide shielding and protection for the area rugs themselves. The pad lessens routine wear and tear area rugs can endure from typical use. Non slip rug padding not only prevents carpet shifting and travel, but also reduces crumpling and creasing. Rug padding also increases the likelihood that any wearing away to the rug occurring from walking on the rug itself will occur evenly, rather than a pattern being created due to wrinkling of the area rug.

Non-slip rug pads have some type chemical latex applied to the rug pad itself to reduce slippage. Other non slip pads for rugs have a layer of non-slip rubber attached to the pad. Area rugs tend to reduce noise in a room, but rug pads help to sop up even more noise through extra cushioning. Non slip solutions come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes to accommodate the vast assortment of area rug sizes and shapes available. Anti slip rug pads can be acquired in runner, octagonal, square, rectangle and round shapes to better fit any shape rug you desire.

A non slip rug pad can purchased from nearly any store that carries flooring or carpeting. Additionally, you can find rug padding at hardware stores such as Ace Hardware, or department stores such as Target. There are many online venues specializing floor protection products. Some companies offer pads you trim to size yourself. Other companies will custom cut the rug pad for you. Custom cut rug pads will obviously take a bit longer to acquire.

Some companies market pre-cut non-slip rug pads. Depending upon the type of surface your area rug is intended for, you will want to investigate a different level of padding. Many companies offer different levels of padding depending upon whether your rugs are on stone floors, tile, linoleum, or carpet. Some non slip rug pads come with a seal of approval from organizations such as Good Housekeeping. Other companies offer warranties on their non skid mats.
