  • Does a Rug Pad Matter?

    Posted by

    Does it really matter if you put a rug pad under your new Oriental rug?  How much of a difference does a rug pad really make?  The short answer from our rug cleaning professionals is YES – you need a rug pad underneath your area rug.  Here’s why:

    • Protection for the Floor – Good rug pads provides the padding that your Persian rug needs against the foot traffic above, and the hard floor below. Rug pads add thickness to the rug which helps it withstand heavy furniture and general use.  Good rug cleaning technicians can recommend the ideal rug pad for your rug, and can cut it to size for you.
    • Protection for the Rug – Rug pads help protect your flooring from any dye transfer or staining that can occur from the rug. Rugs with tougher natural fibers could potentially produce small scratches onto certain types of flooring, but a good rug pad will ensure this doesn’t happen.
    • Protection for You – A good rug pad keeps the rug in place, keeps it from sliding or slipping, and ensures the rug stays flat, all of which reduces the risk of tripping over the rug. In short, rug pads can even help keep you and your family safe.

    You can keep your floors in great shape, keep your rug in great shape, and avoid tripping hazards, all by ensuring you have a good quality rug pad underneath your area rugs.  You can buy rug pad material at the store and then cut the padding to fit your rug.  Better yet, you can call on the best rug cleaning company in your area and trust the rug cleaners to handle this task.  There’s a right way to measure and cut rug pads, and you can be sure that good professional rug cleaners will do the job right.  RugPro Oriental Rug Cleaning is the best rug cleaning service Jacksonville FL homeowners trust with their rug cleaning needs and rug pad services.  When your Persian rug needs cleaning or care, whether it’s routine dusting, deep cleaning, new rug pads, or a thorough restorative cleaning, our highly trained rug cleaning technicians will take care of everything.  Give us a call and see why your neighbors in Riverside, Nocatee, Ponte Vedra Beach, Atlantic Beach, Southside, and downtown Jacksonville think we’re the best rug cleaners in town!
