Why non slip rug pad needed for oriental rugs / Persian antiques and other area rugs?

Non slip area pads are essential for protecting your floors, rugs, and carpets in your home. When it comes to valuable hand-knotted antique rugs, a high-quality rug pad is an absolute must. 

  • Rug pads protect your Oriental area rugs from damage caused by furniture and foot traffic by providing a layer of cushion and absorbing shock and weight. 

  • Non-slip rug pads also keep rugs from slipping, wrinkling, and bunching, which can cause not only tripping hazards but secondary events such as rip, and ruin rugs. 

  • By raising rugs off the floor (to varying degrees, depending on the rug pile) rug pads promote air circulation and make vacuuming easier which in turn reduces dirt and dust - the number one cause of rug degradation


What padding materials and types work best for your antique area rug?

Antique Oriental and Persian rugs are made of the highest-quality natural fibers such as wool and silk which require a padding of similar quality, ideally natural eco slip rug pad materials. We provide both best quality rubber rug pads, and sustainable natural felt and rubber rug pads (often made from recycled fibers) made in the USA according to the highest manufacturing standards. 

The rug pad choice (ratio grip to cushioning) depends on your area rug's pile and size. 

  • If your rug is a flatweave rug such as Kilim rug, particularly a small or medium size, you’ll be looking for more grip and moderate cushioning. The natural rubber will grip the floor and keep your area rugs in place.

  • For thicker, heavier piles or larger sized rugs in living rooms such as 8 x10 area rugs, dining rooms large rugs 9 x12 area rugs, and bedrooms grip will likely be less important than cushioning thicker felt pad and dens felt pad would be a better choice. 

These are just examples. For choosing the right padding type and material, please consult our experts. Depending on the area rug assessment, So Cal Rug Masters will pick the adequate padding that serves your rug best. 


Rug Padding and Rug Backing Benefits for Area Rugs Los Angeles and Orange County

Rug padding, also known as an underlay or underpadding, is a layer of cushioning material placed between an area rug and the floor underneath. While often overlooked, rug padding offers several important benefits that can help enhance the comfort, durability, and longevity of your rugs and floors.

Here are some key benefits of using rug padding:

  • Cushioning and Comfort: Rug padding provides an extra layer of cushioning under your rug, making it more comfortable to walk on. This can be especially beneficial for hard floors like tile, hardwood, or concrete, which can feel cold and hard underfoot.

  • Protection for Floors: Rug padding acts as a barrier between the rug and the floor, preventing the rug from rubbing against the floor's surface. This helps protect the floor from scratches, dents, and other potential damage that could be caused by the rug's movement and weight.

  • Enhanced Rug Durability: Rug padding reduces the impact of foot traffic and heavy furniture on the rug's fibers, thereby extending the rug's lifespan. The padding absorbs some of the force and friction that can lead to premature wear and tear.

  • Slippage Prevention: Rug padding helps keep your rug in place, preventing it from sliding or shifting on the floor. This not only makes your space safer but also reduces the need to constantly adjust the rug's position.

  • Noise Reduction: Rug padding absorbs impact and reduces noise caused by footsteps, making your living space quieter, especially in multi-story homes or apartments.

  • Even Surface: Rug padding creates a smoother and more even surface for your rug to lie on. This helps prevent ripples, wrinkles, and bulges that can develop over time without proper support.

  • Improves Vacuuming Effectiveness: Rug padding raises the rug slightly, creating a small gap between the rug and the floor. This allows for better airflow and more effective vacuuming, as the vacuum's suction can reach dirt and debris trapped beneath the rug.

  • Prevents Mold and Mildew: Some rug padding materials have antimicrobial properties that help inhibit the growth of mold, mildew, and bacteria. This is particularly important if your rug is placed in a damp or humid environment.

  • Easy Maintenance: Rug padding makes vacuuming and cleaning your rug easier by preventing the rug from bunching up or shifting during maintenance.

  • Adds a Layer of Insulation: Rug padding can provide a small degree of thermal insulation, helping to keep your space warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.

When choosing area rug padding, consider factors like the type of flooring (wood floors, hardwood floors), the thickness of the rug, and the level of traffic in the area. There are various types of rug padding materials available, including natural rubber, felt rug pad, foam, and combination pads, felt and rubber pad each offering different levels of cushioning and grip. Investing in high-quality rug padding can significantly enhance your rug's performance and protect both your rug and flooring investment over time.
