Yes. Foot traffic causes friction, which wears out the bottom of the rug. If your rug does not have any furniture on it, it's especially important to use a pad to prevent slip and trip hazards as well.
Will a Rug Pad Provide Extra Cushion?
Yes. A pad under your rug adds extra plushness, especially to thinner rugs. They also promote an extra sense of peace and quiet by reducing the sound of your footsteps.
Will a Rug Pad Protect Against Damage?
Yes. Walking across your rug crushes the fibers. Without a pad, foot traffic will quickly diminish the ability of the fibers to spring back after being stepped on, leading to permanent flattening.
What is the Green Label Plus™ Certification?
The Green Label Plus™ Certification is awarded to rugs that are eco-friendly and have low chemical emissions.
Can I Use a Rug Pad Outdoors?
We do not recommend rug pads for outdoor use.
