Why You Should Use a Rug Pad on Your Pet Friendly Area Rugs

Here are some of the most common questions we get asked regarding rug pads:

Does using a rug pad really make a drastic difference?

Is it worth the extra money or is it just a waste?

If so, what are the benefits for using a pad?


So you've made the purchase of your new rug and you’re wondering if you need the pad to go along with it. The answer is yes. A pad doesn’t just add cushion to your rug, it also protects the rug, and the flooring beneath it, from extra wear and tear. Whether you are putting your rug on hardwood or tile, a rug pad is highly suggested to go along with it.

With so many different rug pads on the market, how do you go about choosing the correct one? Well let’s start with what your needs are. Do you have pets? Do you have kids?
