There are a few reasons why having a rug pad under your rug is important. We have listed a few reasons to educate our customers and whoever else is interested in knowing the benefits of rug pads. Read more to find out:
One important reason to place a rug pad under your rug is when you’re not protecting the bottom of your rug; the rug rubs against your floor and can start to decay because of this. When you have a rug pad, the rug does not undergo any friction and eventually extends the life of your rug.
Another great reason to own a rug pad is the fact that they help prevent bacteria from building up under your rug. Rug pads are made to prevent odor, mold and mildew. People who have allergies would benefit from having a rug pad because of this.
Another reason is that rug pads actually add comfort and safety. Putting a rug pad under any area rug adds another layer of cushioning to make the rug feel more soft and comfortable to walk on. Also they help keep the rug in place which helps to reduce slips and falls.
Rug pads come in all shapes and sizes and most can be trimmed to fit any rug. We at Rugs HQ have a huge variety of area rugs, kid’s rugs, traditional rugs, contemporary rugs, outdoor rugs, and many many more. A rug pad will work as a great companion to any of these.
