Frequently Asked Questions
Which of your rug pad are eco-friendly?
Every rug pad we manufacture has some level of eco-friendly benefits built in. They are as follows:
Our Cloud Comfort rug pads are GreenGuard certified meaning they are completely free of formaldehyde, PBDE’s, triclosan and other damaging chemicals. Cloud Comfort is also manufactured using 100% soybean oils rather than petro based oils and contributes to LEED credits.
Our Comfort Grip and Anchor Grip pads are made with 100% natural soybean oils (vs petro oils).
The felt we source for our Contour Lock and Superior Lock rug pads is LEED certified for low emissions and innovation in design. The rubber backing is made with natural rubber sourced from real rubber trees in Southeast Asia, resulting a in extremely low VOC’s.
Our Eco Plush pad is GREEN PLUS certified, LEED Certified, and MBDC Cradle-to-Cradle Certified by the Carpet and Rug Institute.
Our Super Lock Natural and Nature’s Grip rug pads are produced with natural rubber harvested from real rubber trees. Nature’s Grip also uses a 100% felt jute scrim in combination with a natural rubber coating.
Which rug pads are the most eco-friendly?
Nature’s Grip is the most eco-friendly non-slip carpet pad, as it combines naturally occurring rubber and plant jute. Superior Lock, Contour Lock, and Eco Plush are also very eco-friendly as they only contain natural rubber and/or felt materials.
Why are natural rubber and recycled felt better than traditional PVC padding?
Natural Rubber is the safe and sustainable alternative to the majority of PVC & plastic padding which exists on the market. PVC can contain off-gassing materials, such as phthalates which contribute to indoor air pollution.
Recycled Felt provides powerful protection and cushioning that will not flatten or crush over time. Felt jute fibers are fused together using a gentle heat-pressing technique.
Which Eco-Friendly rug pad provides the most cushioning?
Eco Plush and Cloud Comfort are both leed contributing, low VOC’s pads and will provide the highest level of cushioning. For those rugs that require a non-slip rug pad, Superior Lock combines a thick layer of felt with a natural rubber backing.
