Non Slip Rug Pad For Wood Floors Non Slip Rug Pad For Wood Floors
Having a non slip rug pad underneath your rugs will fix your rugs to the floor, preventing the rug from moving around or bunching up and reducing the likelihood of slips and falls. Here are a few reasons you should consider placing a specially made pad under each of your rugs.
If you place a rug on any hard-surface floor like hardwood or tile, you are risking slips and falls. A rug sitting on a hard surface won’t stay in place and doesn't provide secure footing. Even if your rug comes with a non slip padding on the back, it may not be tacky enough to stick to a slick wood floor. Non slip rug pads create a safer environment for everyone who enters your home. All it takes is one misstep to cause an injury on a rug that isn’t secure.
Wood is porous. Even if it’s been sealed, it can still take on spills, dyes, and other materials. If you have a rug placed in an area that gets more humidity than most rooms, or has more direct exposure to sunlight, the rugs dyes can start to permeate the floor, leaving stains. Placing a non slip rug between the rug and the floor is a great defense against damage to the floors. Be sure when you choose a pad that you choose one that won’t yellow the floor, a problem with cheaper non slip pads.
Since they are inexpensive and easy to find at any home store, a non slip rug pad should be considered a nessessity when placing area rugs on hardwood or tile floors.
