Ordered three runners for garage floor, and returned them. There is no pile to scrape moisture or dirt from shoes before entering the house. Without rug pads, there is nothing to keep them from sliding underfoot. With that added expense and maintenance care, a better rug could be purchased, and that is what I did.
The rug is very attractive, and we are using it as a runner in our entryway. My husband does a lot of work in the garage, and we needed an indoor outdoor rug that looks nice but repels dirt. This rug is perfect for that purpose. The only issue we have had is that it still hasn't flattened completely since the delivery.
Discovered something recently. Indoor/outdoor rugs work great for high traffic areas in the home. Bought this runner for my kitchen, near the sink. Works well for areas that may have water or frequent stains. They are easy to clean, just spray with a hose. Stain resistant, material doesn't absorb anything. Comfortable under your feet. This one comes in many colors, so you can fit it into almost any colors you may be using in kitchen or bath. The price is great. What more can you say about a rug. It's practical and pretty. Only caution, you should use a pad underneath on slippery surfaces.
