There are some things that are more about function than style when it comes to interior decorating and a non slip rug pad is of them. Well, no one will see it unless they pick the carpet up but they provide so many satisfactory benefits including
· Adding safety to the floor Safety
Most small and light rugs often slip on hard floor surfaces. Not only does this look untidy but it cans also cause accidents in form of trips and falls. Non slip rug pads secure carpets in position preventing slips hence maintaining a safe floor.
Most rug pads contain a sticky adhesive that attaches to the floor preventing slipping. They can hold rugs of jute, wool, shags among others which are prone to shifting. Non slip rug pads are essential to vulnerable users like kids and the elderly.
· Adds extra Comfort
A rug pad creates an additional cushioning layer and makes the carpet surface to feel warmer and softer. This is mostly necessary in areas where people often gather on the carpet such as the living room or the children’s areas.
This additional layer also improves the sound insulation of the floor as well as softens the atmosphere of the room.
You can choose the thickness you want for the expected level of comfort, as always, the denser the padding, the more the comfort.
· Non slip rug pad protects the carpet and the floor
When walking on a rug, you place pressure and stress on it which makes the fibers to flatten and its back to wear out. This rubbing against also makes the rug to scratch the wooden floor.
A non slip rug pad acts as a protective barrier between the floor and the rug as it absorbs and resist the penetration that affects the floor and the rug. A dense rug pad also helps to maintain the fibers of the rug. When heavy furniture is placed on the rug, the non slip rug pad resists its weight that may otherwise cause dents on the wooden floor.
· Improves hygiene
Rug pads keep the rug at a distance from the floor which allows space for air circulation below. This makes vacuuming more effective since the dirt can be easily sucked. Air circulation also keeps the rugs well ventilated preventing problems related to poor air circulation such as bacteria, mildew and mold growth which causes odour, staining and premature aging of the rug.
