Sedona AZ - What You NEED TO KNOW About the Benefits of Rug Padding!

Sedona AZ - What You NEED TO KNOW About the Benefits of Rug Padding!

Ruthie with Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care here in Prescott and I know what’s going through your mind right now.  What is rug padding?  Should I get it for my area rugs?  What does it REALLY do?

Well, one of the benefits is that it adds a little more cushion beneath your rugs when you walk on it.  It also holds the rug in place and helps the rug to lay flat, removing a potentially dangerous trip hazard.  However, what most people don’t realize is that there is an even more important benefit of rug padding!

You know how shock absorbers protect your car from taking all the force of hitting the bumps on the road?  Rug padding does the same thing and absorbs the impact of your steps when walking on your rug!  It might not seem like you’re putting a lot of pressure on your rug when you walk on it, but trust me when I say that it’s a big deal for an area rug.  Padding distributes the weight more evenly throughout your area rug, so the force isn’t concentrated to just beneath your feet.

Wear and tear shows on delicate rugs more easily (and faster), so having a quality padding beneath your rug will really help to minimize these effects on your rug.

Arizona Oriental carries the BEST quality rug padding that we can find.  In fact, I even use it in my own home under my flat weave rug!  We also carry two different types depending on the subfloor.  We carry Durahold pad for rugs that sit on top of hard surface (like tile or wood) and No-Muv padding for rugs that sit on top of wall-to-wall carpet.  Most rug padding has a life expectancy of 2-3 years.  However, our padding comes with a 10 year warranty, so you’re sure to get the most bang for your buck!

The perfect time to order rug padding is when your rugs are at Arizona Oriental being cleaned!  From the exact measurement of your rug, we will subtract 2” from each side so that the pad tucks nicely beneath the rug.  You can still order padding even if your rug isn’t ready to be cleaned yet.  Just give us a call!  We will set up a time for us to come out and get the exact measurement of your rug so we can custom cut your pad.  Once it’s been cut, we will return with the padding to your home and even set it up beneath your rug for you if you need us to!

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