This was a great buy for my $. Because a rug pad is something that is hidden- it doesn't matter what it looks like. i just wanted more than the standard waffle rug pad. Now with the supreme, my rug feels very soft and comfy when i walk on it. The rug pad also extends the life of the rug.
We didn't want to purchase a mesh rug pad since we were nervous it would leave marks on our hardwood floors. This is the rug pad we ended up with and we are thrilled with this purchase. The quality is fantastic and it helps keep our rug in its place.
This item arrived in a plastic package about 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 feet. when we took the plastic wrap off, we had to unfold the pad to its full dimensions, the only problem was that the pad did not lay completely flat due to the creases created by folding it for the delivery. It had wrinkles that would not come out. we let it lay there for one day, with no change in the wrinkle status, finally my wife took a steam iron and a wet cloth and carefully tried to remove the creases; it was very time consuming, but it worked. Having done that, we finally laid down the carpet down and it is OK now.
I'm disappointed that this pad is much thinner than I was expecting. We have two similar pads that we purchased from a local carpet store for the same price, but they were twice as thick as this pad. I do like the wool top and the rubber bottom to help protect my floor. If the rug we ordered would have had a better lining on the bottom, I probably would have returned this product for a refund.
I bought this rug pad to go under a family heirloom oriental rug in the dining room of my son and daughter-in-law's newly built home in Charleston, SC. The rug was on laminate flooring and would slide whenever the cat walked across it even though it was under a table and chairs. The rug size was not a normal size--8 1/2' x 9 so I had to order the larger 9' x 12', but that was not a problem because it was easily cut down to size. The problem was solved. The rug stays in place with no more slipping. The slight cushioning also is a plus. They are very pleased!
This product definitely does the job of non-slip. If I had it to do over again I would trim the edges by an inch all the way around. It is difficult to get a 9x12 rug to fit exactly on a 9x12 pad. I think I could have bought a smaller size pad and have the same non-skid results but this is the first time I've purchased an area rug. All in all I'm very pleased with this product. Once I put the rug down I've forgotten all about it.
I mean, how do you really rate a product that does exactly what it says its going to do? It is the size listed, the rug doesn't slip and the price was legit. I bought a few of them since they're easy to cut down for smaller rugs.
This pad was thinner than I expected. It's only about 1/8 inch thick. Maybe I didn't read the description closely enough. It has a good non-slip backing, but it does little to add cushioning under the rug. I just wanted to let others know so if you're looking for a soft pad, this is not it. It's fine if you just want a good non-slip rug pad though, much better than those waffle weave ones they sell at discount stores..
This is a very good rug pad for the price. The quality is superior and it feels really good under your feet. I bought it bigger because I needed a pad for two rugs. I cut out the pieces I needed and put one under a wool carpet and one under a very thin hooked carpet in the hallway and they both feel very soft and smooth to walk on now.
I bought a new rug and wanted to have a pad underneath as the rug is very large. It is on a hard wood floor, so wanted something that would breath and not get moldy if there was any humidity, so went with the anti-microbial non-slip pad. So far, it seems to be working fine.
I purchased a rug for my terrace & chose this rug pad. Very glad I did. The rug is exposed to the elements but still looks great. We had heavy rain for 2 days. When I checked the rug afterward it felt dry; the water passed through. The cement under was damp but the rug was fairly dry. EXACTLY what I had hoped.
I bought this rug pad for our 9x12 Safavieh outdoor rug. It works great! The rug pad came a little bigger than a 9x12, but was very easy to cut down to the size we needed. Better to come to us too big than too small! Doesn't add cushion to the rug, but it definitely keeps the rug from shifting!
Quality pad is easy on floors and stays in place. Would like it a little thicker for my favorite flat-weave rugs, but it holds area rugs in place well and to be fair, area rug pads don't come thick and cushy. That's for wall-to-wall carpeting. If pads are very thick, area rugs become trip-hazards. I'm ordering another one of these. If this pad contained no petroleum-based products, I'd give it five stars.
This pad will keep your orientals etc. in place on top of wall to wall carpet. It will not budge HOWEVER it is one and done. If you pull the rug for cleaning etc. then you will never be able to use the pad again. It sticks to everything and when you try to pull it off it bunchs up - like tape does and you can not flatten it out again. It also leaves a tacky residue on the wall to wall carpet which is not good. But if you always plan on having an area rug in that spot then it doesn't matter.
I bought this to go under a rug I had just bought. This worked really well. I even use this stuff under my cups and plates in the cabinets to make sure they don't slip. This is a nice soft spongey material. In fact, it does add just a hint of padding under the rug. It really does help the surface not slip. I'm really happy with the quality and durability of it. It lays very nicely under the large area rug. I'm very happy with it because it works exactly as described. It actually superseded my expectations by how good the material is and how easy it was to manage. This is a wonderful product. I'm so glad I have it.
I have been struggling with rug slippage in my kitchen (linoleum) and living room (hardwood), drives me nuts when my dog runs in and the carpet goes flying. This non-slip rug pad is not only secure keeping the rug in place but it is also cushy. I have had other pads that didnt hold tight and still slide, the grip on this one is fantastic. Holds the rug and the floor nicely. The only complaint I have, it has an odor to it when you first open it-I have a sensitivity to certain smells and this one I personally had to open and let air out outside. Otherwise, great non-slip pad and there is no more sliding around on carpets in my home!
While slightly more expensive than it's non-environmentally friendly counterparts, this rug pad is totally worth it because it does NOT smell like an oil refinery when you open the package. It was the correct size, easy to unfold, is soft and cushioned, and makes it so the rug doesn't slip or bunch, I love it!
