Frequently Asked Questions
What’s that difference between your non slip rug pads vs other low cost plastic rug pads?
A quality rug pad will “grip” your floors rather than “stick” to your floors. The materials we use, such as natural rubber, which won’t stick and stain floors over an extended period. Our rug pads are made in the USA and we are very careful about what materials we use in our rug pads. Many overseas manufacturers will use cheap chemical fillers which can react with certain floor finishes. One particular example, is the use of phthalates, a class of toxic chemicals used in PVC pads to provide flexibility, which will react very poorly with certain floor finishes.
Our non skid rug pads are made either made with natural rubber or a biobased polymer coating. Both of these materials have a much stronger coefficient of friction than standard PVC resulting in much better gripping power.
Traditional PVC padding often looses it’s shape & volume over the years and will eventually flatten and bottom out.
Which of your non-skid rug pads are recommended on hardwood floors?
All of our non slip padding is tested and approved for use on wood floors. This includes polyurethane and other glossy floor finishes such as polyurethane. Our pads are specifically designed to avoid marring, staining and stripping issues that can occur with many lower cost imports. We always ask that you follow your flooring manufacturer's instructions and wait for proper curing times.
What are the benefits of a thicker non-slip pad?
Thicker non-slip padding like our Contour Lock, Superior Lock, and Comfort Grip pads lend extra cushioning underfoot with a strong grip. Cushioning will soften your rugs, making them more comfortable to walk on. Thinner non skid rug pads work well in high traffic areas, such as hallways and entryways, when cushioning is less important.
I have a thinner area rug. Which Non-Slip rug pad should I get?
Some thinner area rugs have a tendency to slip out of place or bunch up at the corners. To combat this issue we would recommend the Anchor Grip, Contour Lock, or Superior Lock pads to provide some weight and comfort. Both rug pads work exceptionally well with thin, flat-woven rugs.
Which non skid rug pads work with which rug types?
For smaller rugs and runner rugs, we recommend choosing a rug pad from our Pure Grip category, such as Anchor Grip, Super Lock Natural, or Nature’s Grip. Smaller rugs in high traffic areas are tougher to keep anchored, our pure grip pads are the best gripping rug pads on the market for these types of issues.
With medium sized rugs (4’x6’-7’x10’) - Choose a Dual Purpose rug pad if you’re looking for both cushion and grip or a Pure Grip rug pad if you prefer to keep rugs lying flush with your floors. All rugs within this size typically need a non slip rug pad, unless anchored down by furniture.
With larger rugs, 7’x10’ and larger - You can choose any rug pad for these sizes. Most larger rugs that tend to lay flat on their own may not need a non slip rug pad and thus may only need a Pure Cushion pad, such as our 100% felt or memory foam rug pad for added cushion. Thinner, lower pile rugs such as flatweaves should always use a non slip rug pad regardless of rug size to help promote rug evenness and prevent bunching that can occur.
Do any of your non-slip pads produce odor?
Our rug pads will not mold or mildew and are completely odor-free. We make sure all of our rug pads have been properly aired and cured before shipping.
With larger rugs that are anchored down, do I need a non-slip rug pad?
Non-slip rug pads help keep the corners anchored down while promoting rug evenness. Rugs actually wear from the bottom up, so depending on the strength of your rugs backing a quality rug pad will help prolong the life of your rug. With rugs anchored down, if you’re not worried about the corners slipping or bunching, then a 100% felt or memory foam carpet pad might add a layer of comfort that didn’t exist beforehand.
