When you’re buying a new rug or getting rugs you currently own cleaned, You should consider padding. Rugs can slip around and be a bit of a hazard without padding underneath. Older pads start to crack, collect tons of dirt, and are difficult to clean. There are a few types of padding for different situations.
- Teebaud- This is a thin pad with a very sticky back. It can be used for both carpet and hardwood floors. Made from a water-based adhesive it grips both the rug backing and the floor or carpet.
- Wonderfirm- This is a ¼ in. pad with a felt top and a soft vinyl back. The vinyl back provides slip reduction.
- Diplomat- A 32oz. pad with a nylon felt underlay. It acts as a cushion for area rugs. This pad Does not have non-skid functionality.
