Prescott AZ – Should I Buy Rug Padding for My Area Rug?

What is rug padding?  What is the benefit to getting rug padding for my rug and should I get it for my rugs?  Because I get these questions all the time, I know what most people are thinking about this subject.  And while there is the added factor of adding a little more cushion beneath your rug while you walk on it or even holding it in place to prevent it from ending up on the wrong end of your home, there is another, more important purpose for rug padding.

You wouldn’t want to drive a car that didn’t have shock absorbers, would you?  Of course not!  Rug padding acts much the same way for your area rugs as the shock absorbers do for your car.  Walking on your rug may not seem like it’s a big deal or that there’s much force in walking on your rug to make much of a difference at all, but trust me – it is a big deal!  Padding takes on much of the pounding from walking on your rugs, easing the weight and compression on the knots. It softens steps and helps to preserve and protect the knots of hand woven rugs and all other types of rugs as well.  When you have a delicate rug, you can expect wear and tear to show even faster and more easily than a sturdier fiber – a high quality padding will help to minimize the effects on your rug.
Because we know how important an investment rug padding is, Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care has made sure that we carry the best quality padding that we could find.  I use it in my own home under my flat weave rug and it works like a dream to keep it in place.  We carry No-Muv for rugs that sit on top of wall to wall carpet and DuraHold pad for rugs that sit on wood or tile floors with a hard surface.  These pads come with a great 10 year warranty, which means you get the biggest bang for your buck!Purchasing this quality pad for your rug is easy.  The perfect time to order is while your rugs are being cleaned with us.  We measure your rug and custom cut the pad to your rug and then it will be delivered to you with your rug delivery or ready for pick up when you pick up your rug. 

Perhaps your rug isn’t ready to be cleaned yet but you still want pad, give us a call!  We will set up an appointment to come out and take a measure of your rug and we will even give you a sample piece so you know exactly what you’re buying.  Padding gets custom fitted to your rug so it’s important that we are able to measure firsthand for a correct fit.  Once the pad is cut, arrangement will be made for delivery. We can even set it up for you!  So give us a call today, rug padding is definitely worth your investment!

Till next time, enjoy your beautiful art for your floor and remember a clean rug is a rug that can last you a lifetime!
