Every time I go over to my brother’s place I have to watch my step so I don’t trip over the kink in his rug.
Just when I was about ready to tell my big bro to throw the rug out, I got an email from Rug Pad USA wanting to know if I’d like to review one of their rug pads. Hello, Rug Pad USA…could you hear my screams for help?
After checking out their website and discovering they had the perfect solution for the kink in the rug, I jumped at the opportunity to try one of their pads.
The kink in the area rug is a result of it being placed on top of wall to wall carpeting. Often times when you place a rug on top of another one the top rug will creep and crease. This is not a good look and it creates a tripping hazard when you are trying to walk around the coffee table.
After looking through the website, I choose the Premium Lock Felt + Rubber Pad which is designed for area rugs because it has a superior “grip”, which helps prevent the rug from shifting. It worked like a gem!
The 5′ x 7′ rug pad came rolled up and all we had to do was unroll it and position it in place. When going on top of a rug, you place the felt side down leaving the rubber side facing up to grip the back of the area rug.
Once we put the rug on top of the pad we walked over it a few times to make sure the two surfaces made a connection and that the rug was flat.
Hallelujah…the kink vanished and the rug laid smoothly over the carpeting which made for one happy brother and one super happy sister.
Rug Pad USA carries pads for all types of #rugs and the pads are available in a range of sizes, shapes and different thicknesses to fit your comfort needs. In addition to offering traditional rug sizes, you can request a custom size if you have an irregular rug. And every pad they sell is odor-free and does not emit any toxic air emissions, like some of the cheaper latex or synthetic counterparts. Go here to check out their full line of rug pads.
