Other Frequently Asked Questions regarding Rug Pads for Hardwood Floors

My last rug pad got stuck to the floor - Will your products stick to my floors over time?

How thick should my rug pad be on my hardwood floors?

Our pads range from 1/16” (Econo-Lock) to 1/2” (Eco-Fiber). A thicker rug pad (1/4”-1/2”) will help to cushion your area rugs while reducing premature rug wear. A cushioned rug pad will help to prolong the life of that area rug while offering superior floor protection for your hardwood floors. Our most popular rug pads for larger rugs include our Eco-Fiber, Premium-Lock, or Eco-Cushion padding.

Our thinner non-slip rug pads for hardwood floors include Econo-Lock Natural, Super-Lock, Super-Lock Natural, Superior-Lock and Eco-Solid. These pads are ideal for runner rugs, hallway rugs, and smaller rugs that are more prone to slipping. A thicker rug pad might make smaller area rugs too bulky, causing people to trip. However, with thinner runners and small rugs, such as handwoven or flatweave rugs, a thicker wood floor pad will work just fine and is actually recommended.

Overall, the best rug pads for wood floors will create a solid buffer between your area rug and hardwood floors, which in turn facilitate vacuuming and grooming to keep your rug looking fresh.

More Info:

A quality rug pad for hardwood floors will do the following:

 

  • ✔ Help prolong the life of your rugs, protecting your investment
  • ✔ Prevent your rug from scratching and marring the floors below
  • ✔ Keep the corners from sliding, bunching, and wrinkling

 

How to Choose The Right Rug Pad for Hardwood Floors

 

For smaller rugs and runner rugs, you will need a non-slip rug pad with or without cushioning. A cushioned rug pad for hardwood floors will offer more floor protection, just remember that it may raise your rug off the ground slightly causing people to trip.

 

For larger rugs (6’x9’+) - You may never need a non-slip rug pad if your rug is large enough not to move. Larger rugs that are anchored down may only need a cushioned rug pad such as a felt pad to prevent floor damage. However, larger rugs that my slide at the corners or bunch up can benefit from a non-slip pad.
