To protect your flooring and help increase the life of your rug, it is highly recommended that you keep your rug out of direct sunlight to prevent the color from fading and becoming uneven. It is also extremely important to put a rug pad between the floor and your rug. A durable rug pad not only provides cushion and increases protection to your floor but also prevents your rug from sliding and buckling which in turn increases safety for you, your family, guest and pets. We carry an entire line of heavy duty rug pads by Jade Industries that will suit any area rug need.
In addition to protecting your hard floor surfaces, it is equally important to use a rug pad when putting an area rug over top wall to wall carpeting. In addition to preventing slipping and buckling, it protects your carpet from pilling, wear and tear. As part of our complete line of rug pads, we carry duel purpose rug pad options that serve as both an anchor for hard surfaces as well as an anchor for wall to wall carpeting.
Rotating your rug is also key to maintaining the life of your area rug. Rotating the rug every 6 months can be a preventative measure to daily wear and tear.
