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.
