Rug Pads for Concrete & Basement Floors

Concrete floors are hard, cold, and often times uneven, thus rugs could often benefit from a more cushioned rug pad. Given that concrete floors are often found in basements, you would also want a rug pad that won’t mold or mildew.

Customer Questions & Answers

  • I have a very thick shag type rug that will be put on stained concrete. There will be a bed on top of the rug so I don't think slippage will be a problem. What rug pad and what thickness do you recommend?

    As you are not concerned about slippage I'm going to recommend the generous cushioning of the Eco Plush all felt pad. I suggest the 1/4" thickness.

  • I have radiant heated artisan cement floors and need rug pads that will not melt, harden or turn to powder. What do you suggest? I have a large, flat wool tribal rug, and am thinking of getting a medium-sized propylene rug with a 1/4" to 1/2" pile.

    For your radiant heated floor, I would suggest either Contour Lock, Superior Lock, or Eco Plush. All three pads can easily handle the changing temperatures of radiant floors without degrading. The longest lasting of these rug pads is Eco Plush which is a 100% all felt pad. I only recommend this option if your rug is larger than 8' x 10' with furniture to anchor it down.

  • What is the most comfortable pad to use under our 10' x 17' rugs in high humidity areas such as a basement? It does not flood but it is extremely humid. I am worried about moisture and smells.

    I would look at our Eco Plush pad. This heat-pressed felt pad comes with a lot of lush cushioning and performs well in areas of high humidity. It is resistant to mold, moisture, mildew and odor-causing bacteria.

  • I need a pad that provides a lot of cushioning and is appropriate for the finished masonry (brick) floor of a basement. While flooding is highly unlikely, it’s very humid down there and I’m concerned about water trapping and odors. What do you suggest?

    Our Cloud Comfort memory foam pad should be ideal for your basement. Not only will it give you plenty of underfoot cushioning, but it is also a waterproof pad with a moisture barrier.

  • What is the best pad for a large, antique Persian rug that is worn in places and will be put in a busy area over a painted concrete floor?

    Our Superior Lock 1/4" is the best choice for your rug and floor. The grooved natural rubber backing will hold the rug firmly in place to prevent movement when people are walking all over it.
