Rug Pads

Why You Need a Rug Pad

Exciting news! You found the perfect rug to put on your floor, unroll it and you’re done right; but not so fast. The next step is to decide whether or not to include a rug pad. Many find this step unnecessary or unimportant but nothing could be further from the truth. This important step provides many benefits for your safety, your rug, and your flooring. Let’s take a deeper dive. . . . .


As the term illustrates, rug pads provide safety, protection, comfort and cushion needed for your rugs. First, they provide protection for homeowners, and all who will eventually step on your rugs, by making sure that your rugs are in place and anchored properly to avoid slipping. Likewise, pads provide protection by preventing scratches to your hardwood floors. They can even prevent damage from liquid spills and pet accidents if you have a pad from River City Rug Cleaning. These pads are not available in stores.

Rug pads promote cleanliness and help prolong the life of your rug. Surely you are aware that mildew, dirt, mold, and unpleasant odors can set in under your rugs? A pad can help prevent or lessen the occurrence of such things and act as a buffer between your floors and rug; while simultaneously helping to extend the life of your rugs.

Lastly, but definitely not the least, a rug pad improves the quality, longevity, feel, and look of your rug and room. Got unwanted grout lines, for example? A pad will make such unsightly things not show and help you not feel an uneven floor.

Look for the best fit for your particular needs, make sure it is good quality and provides enhancements for your rug area. Interested?
