The Rug Experts Spill: Why Rug Padding is ESSENTIAL for Area Rugs!

Hey folks, Ruthie with Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care here in Prescott, AZ once again!  I get questions all the time about what rug padding is, what the benefit is, and whether or not someone should get it for their area rugs.  A lot of people seem to think that the only thing that rug padding does is add a little extra cushion beneath their rugs or prevent their rugs from bunching up.  But that’s not all it does!

Having a rug pad beneath your area rugs is like having shock absorbers on your car.  You would never drive a car without shock absorbers, would you? Of course not! While walking on your rug seems like a pretty innocent and normal activity that rugs are made to handle, trust me when I say it’s actually a big deal!  There’s a lot of force exerted on your rug when you walk on it, and padding is specifically designed to absorb that force.

Rug padding softens your steps and helps preserve and protect the knots of all kinds of rugs.  Delicate rugs show wear and tear faster and more easily than a sturdier fiber. Having a high quality rug padding will help to minimize these effects on your rug!

Here at Arizona Oriental, we KNOW that rug padding is a very important investment. This is why we carry the BEST QUALITY padding on the market.  In fact, I even use it in my own home underneath my flat weave rug and it works like a dream to keep it in place and protect those fine knots.

No-Muv is the padding that we carry for rugs that sit on top of wall-to-wall carpet while our DuraHold padding is for rugs that sit on hard surface floors like wood or tile.  They also come with a 10 year warranty, which means you get the most bang for your buck!

You don’t need to worry about any potential hassle with ordering this quality padding.  While your rugs are being cleaned, we measure your rug and custom cut the pad to fit nice and snug beneath it.  Whether you pick up your rug yourself or have us deliver it, your custom-cut pad will be ready when your rug is ready to come back home. 

Give us a call today to ask about getting a quality rug pad for the area rugs in your home!

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