Customer Questions & Answers
What is a waterproof rug pad?
A waterproof rug pad creates a liquid resistant barrier between your rug and floor. Our SpillTech, Cloud Comfort, and Anchor Grip rug pads provide moisture barrier which will prevent liquids from reaching floors temporarily and gives you enough time to properly clean up pet urine stains or other accidental spills before they end up damaging your floors.
We have pets that sometimes have accidents. We also have hardwood floors that are more than 75 years old. Therefore, we need a reliable pad, one that can be cleaned and doesn't smell. What do you suggest?
I would take a look at our 1/8" thick Anchor Grip pad. It is waterproof and can be easily washed by hand.
Which pad will work best for bathroom and kitchen areas that occasionally get wet?
We have a handful of waterproof pads designed for areas where spills and moisture are issues. But keep in mind that the Anchor Grip pad is the only one of these with a gripping attribute.
I'm in need of a rug pad that will add some grip but more importantly will prevent spills from leaking through to our hardwood floors. I see that you have one in particular, but it seems rather thick. Have you anything thinner?
You could go with our Anchor Grip waterproof pad. This low-profile pad is 1/8" thick and has a liquid resistant barrier that temporarily stops spills from seeping through to floors. This will give you sufficient time to clean them up. This pad also has a very firm grip.
I need a waterproof rug pad for an area rug that is going to be laid on laminate floor. What should I get?
Our Anchor Grip and SpillTech pads both have moisture barriers that temporarily prevent spills from soaking through and reaching floors. If you would like a strong grip as well, choose Anchor Grip.
I'm looking for the most comfortable rug pad that is appropriate to use in a very humid basement. I am concerned about moisture and odor trapping. What do you suggest?
I would suggest any of our felt and natural rubber pads such as Superior Lock or Eco Plush which is made with 100% heat-pressed felt. All our products are needle punched, 100% breathable and mildew resistant.
I'm interested in the waterproof Cloud Comfort pad for an 8' x 11' rug with a heavy mahogany dining table on it. The pad looks thick, so I'm concerned it will cause tripping. I'm also looking at the SpillTech pad, and don’t know which one to get.
Both pads have an excellent moisture resistant barrier that would work well for you. If you are worried about tripping hazards, I would go with the thinnest version of our Cloud Comfort pad which is 1/4" thick. You would receive this in one piece while SpillTech would come in two pieces taped together.
I have a wall-to-wall carpet piece on top of hardwood for my dogs. They bring in sand and moisture so my priority is to buy a waterproof pad. The carpet is 10' x 10' and I don't mind if I have to buy two pieces and put them together. What do you suggest?
I recommend SpillTech, a 100% waterproof pad that will protect your floor from any moisture. It also contains an enzyme that eats odors. This pad will come in two pieces that can be taped together.
I need a non-slip rug pad under a 4' x 6' rug in my bathroom. It also has to help protect the wood floor from moisture. What do you recommend?
I recommend our Anchor Grip pad. Not only does it possess a firm grip but it also has an effective moisture barrier that will help to protect your bathroom floor.
I need non-slip rug pads that also offer moisture protection to safeguard my hardwood floors from puppy accidents. What do you suggest? I have two 5' x 7' rugs, a 5' x 8' rug and a runner.
I recommend our Anchor Grip rug pad. It is non-slip and waterproof, providing a water-resistant barrier that temporarily prevents spills including pet accidents from reaching the floor beneath.
I bought three 100% wool rugs for my kitchen to go under the sink, stove, and fridge. The floor is solid hardwood, and I want the best pad for water spills is. Also, I don't want a pad that is going to damage my floor. What are your thoughts?
I suggest the Anchor Grip pad which is made from soybean oils and bio-based fillers. This non-slip pad is waterproof and perfectly safe for hardwood floors. It simply does not damage them.
I have a 3’ x 5’ kilim rug that is made from recycled plastic (PET). It sits on a hardwood floor in front of the kitchen sink. Which pad do you recommend?
I suggest the Anchor Grip, which is a vinyl soybean oil-based polymer blend pad. It is waterproof and has a very strong grip.
What pad do you recommend for a runner on a wood floor in my kitchen? I've read about water-resistant pads that help to keep spills from damaging the wood floor. What would you suggest?
I would take a look at our Anchor Grip pad. This pad has an effective moisture-resistant barrier that temporarily stops spills from reaching the floor. It also has a firm grip and works well on wood flooring.
What is the best pad for hardwood and pet urine problems?
I suggest the SpillTech rug pad depending on the size of the rug. This pad would be best since it is waterproof and has special enzymes that eat away at the causes of bad odors. Keep in mind that this pad is not non-slip and so should only be used for larger size rugs. If you are looking for a pad with grip, I recommend Anchor Grip which is also a waterproof pad. If your pet does have an accident on the rug be sure to clean it up in a timely manner with a mild soap and water.
Are any of your rug pads safe to use outside? I would like one for a wood deck.
I'm afraid that at this moment in time we don't have any pads that can be used outdoors.
We have many pets and instances where liquid is spilled on our oriental-style area rugs but we don't find out until later. By that time the hardwood is already stained. Do SpillTech pads stop moisture or simply delay penetration to the floor?
SpillTech is a 100% spill and pet proof rug pad that prevents liquids from reaching floors. It combines a thick layer of urethane foam with Scotchgard's Advanced Repel Technology.
What pad would be best for very soft chenille on hardwood with dogs in the house? I suspect a waterproof pad is the best?
A good waterproof pad to protect your floor from dog accidents is SpillTech. It combines a thick layer of urethane foam with Scotchgard's Advanced Repel Technology, providing an effective water resistant barrier that temporarily prevents spills from getting through to floors. This should give you enough time to clean up the mess before even a drop touches the wood.
If a dog makes a toilet mess on a rug during the day and I don't get home until later will the liquid make it to the floor underneath?
The liquid will not reach the floor if you use a SpillTech pad, however, it will with Cloud Comfort and Anchor Grip.
With regards to waterproofing, is Anchor Grip as effective as the SpillTech pad?
SpillTech is better. This rug pad is made to be waterproof and spill proof.
