Benefits & Quality
Rug padding serves a number of different purposes for your rug. Most importantly, it prevents your rug from sliding to avoid any injures to yourself or others. In other cases, it can also keep your rug from buckling up when you have furniture on it, and protect both your floor and the rug from each other.
Rubber Anchor Pad
The standard rug pad and the most common and popular type, is “Rubber Anchor”. A simple sheet of rubber reinforced with fibers to prevent tears and also grips both your floor and your rug together. This type of pad will cut to the exact size of rugs directly off of a roll. For larger rugs it’ll taped together to keep in one piece. This pad is meant only for laying your rug on a hard floor, not for carpet.
When a rug laying on carpet, especially very thick carpet, it will tend to buckle up while furniture is set down on top of it. By using a thick pad, the rug is held into place to prevent too much buckling. It can also be used on hard surfaces, in case you have a very thin rug which needs additional cushioning.
