FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Will a Rug Pad Provide Extra Grip?
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.

If you are thinking about putting your rug in storage, it is important that you take the proper storage location into consideration. While the basement or attic may seem like a great space for your general storage needs, you should never place a rug in either location. These rooms are prone to attracting higher levels of humidity than the rest of the home.

  • - Clean your rug. Taking the rug to a professional cleaner before storage will ensure the maximum amount of dirt and other contaminates are removed.
  • - Thoroughly clean the area you plan to place your rug in. After the initial clean, you should periodically dust the area. Tightly roll the rug, pile inward.
  • - Wrap your rug in paper, and store on a shelf or other surface that is not in direct contact with the floor.
  • - Do not place any heavy objects on top of the rug. This can cause permanent creasing and other irreversible damage to your rug.
