Rug Pads for Hardwood Floors - FAQ

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 and help reduce premature rug wear. Over the course of many years, 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.
