Customer Questions & Answers
I am planning to put a pad under a jute rug in our entryway. The purpose is to provide waterproof protection to our bamboo floors. Is Anchor Grip suitable for this job?
Yes, it is. Anchor Grip is one of our waterproof rug pads. It has a liquid resistant barrier that will prevent spilled liquids from soaking through. This protection is temporary but it should give you enough time to clean up any spill before damage is done to your floor.
I am planning to put a pad under a jute rug in our entryway. The purpose is to waterproof our bamboo floors. Will Anchor Grip stop moisture collecting on the rug when people run from our swimming pool back inside the house?
Yes, it will. Anchor Grip is one of our waterproof rug pads. It has a liquid resistant barrier that will prevent spilled liquids from soaking through. This protection is temporary, but it should give you enough time to clean up any spill before damage is done to your floor.
I live in Australia and my underlay leaves an unpleasant sticky coating on my compressed bamboo floor. I would like something to provide cushion and prevent slipping but not leave a residue. Also, I prefer natural fibers. What do you recommend?
I would ask the floor company for guidelines on what is okay for your bamboo flooring. If they state that natural rubber is okay then any of our natural rubber products will work for you. They will not mark or discolor your floor. Among our pads that offer gripping and cushioning are Contour Lock and Superior Lock. Both are made of recycled felt and natural rubber.
Can I use one of your pads under a rug with a latex backing? I have bamboo flooring.
Yes, you can. Take a look at both our Superior Lock and Contour Lock recycled felt and natural rubber pads.
We have a 9' x 6' rug on a bamboo floor. Can you please recommend a pad that will prevent the rug from slipping and most importantly won't stain the flooring? Thank you very much for your help.
For your size rug, I suggest looking at our Superior Lock or Contour Lock pads. These are made of felt and natural rubber and boast superb non-slip traction that will stop your rug from slipping. And as with all our products, they will not stain or mark your floor.
Which pad would you recommend for a 1/2" thick wool living room area rug for a newly installed bamboo floor? I am also looking for a pad for a cotton runner on the same floor.
Look at our Anchor Grip pad or the Superior Lock pad. Both are 1/8", so if you need clearance for the door, there will be no problem. While both of these have super strong grips, I don't recommend them if you are looking for comfort as well. For comfort and grip, I suggest our Superior Lock 1/4" pad.
I need a non-slip rug pad for a hall runner measuring 2'2" x 7'7". Which would be best on bamboo flooring?
I would take a look at our Anchor Grip and Contour Lock rug pads. Both are low-profile pads with powerful non-slip traction that stop mobile runners and rugs from moving. The former is a soybean oil-based polymer blend while the latter is made of felt and natural rubber. They are safe for your bamboo flooring and will help to conserve its beauty and longevity over the coming years.
I recently purchased the Contour Lock pad for an 8' x 10' vinyl backed jute rug on a bamboo floating floor. Will this pad work since it has rubber in it? Also, do you make round pads?
The Contour Lock pad is made with natural rubber and not synthetic rubber so you should have no problems. It is safe for all floors and won't create any marks. And yes, we do cut round pads. Just select 'round' in the dropdown box when entering your rug's dimensions.
We want a pad for a 3' x 5' rug on the bamboo hardwood floor of our entry hall. We’ve been told not to use rubber and don't want anything that will catch the door or cause people to trip. Also, we want something that won't slide. What do you suggest?
Please take a look at our Anchor Grip pad which will fulfill all your requirements. This is a low-profile pad made from plant-based oils and soybean that is safe for your floor type. It has superb non-slip traction that will stop your rug from moving even under heavy foot traffic and will provide a good level of cushioning without bulking.
We have a new bamboo floor in the kitchen, and the manufacturer recommends a throw rug in front of the sink. They say it should be breathable and mesh or grid patterns are best. What do you recommend for a small rug by a sink to keep it from slipping?
I recommend our Anchor Grip, Super Lock Natural or Nature's Grip rug pads. All three are safe for your floor type and boast remarkable gripping power.
Are your natural rubber rug pads safe to use on Cali bamboo floors?
Yes, they are, but definitely, refer to your floor manufacturer to see what they say about using natural rubber on their bamboo flooring.
We have just installed solid bamboo flooring and were told to use open weave rug pads to prevent moisture from building up. What do you recommend?
If the bamboo flooring is sealed, I would take a look at Super Lock Natural and Nature's Grip. If it is not sealed, I recommend our Anchor Grip rug pad.
I have just installed Cali bamboo vinyl planks, and have been told not to use rubber rug pads. What do you suggest?
Our natural rubber is safe for all types of floors and finishes. However, we always recommend customers talk to the manufacturer of their floor for specific guidelines, as you have done. Therefore, I recommend either our Anchor Grip or Eco Plush rug pads for you. Anchor Grip is made from a soybean oil-based polymer blend while Eco Plush is a 100% heat-pressed felt pad. Neither of them contains any rubber.
I have a 9' x 12'3" Kerman rug on bamboo floors. The pile has been shaved down and so the rug is somewhat thin. Please advise on the right pad to select for a bit of softness underfoot.
I would first advise you to contact your floor manufacturer to ask them whether natural rubber is safe for your floor. If they say yes then I recommend Superior Lock. This is a felt and natural rubber pad that will give you grip and a very comfortable level of soft underfoot cushioning.
