Why You Need a Rug Pad

A rug pad adds a comforting, cushioned feel underfoot to go along with the marvelous look a new area rug creates in room decor.

A rug pad is the best way to protect the hardwood or tile flooring under an area rug from scratches or abrasions that can occur from friction caused by surface dirt that works its down through the pile.
