I have used these pads under several rugs. They are nice and thick, and you can rely on the reversible aspect depending on what kind of surface your rug is on. The drawback is that, after a period of several years, the rubber (non-slip) layer will deteriorate and leave a powder on the floor. While it is easily vacuumed up, that doesn't change the fact that the pad will need to be replaced. Not sure why this happened (to two pads) because an older one is still intact. Still, I find this pad so much better than other options that I plan to buy a replacement.
This is the 2nd rug pad I bought for our area rug. It does an amazing job at holding your area rug in place over real wooden flooring as well as adds comfort and softness to the rug you walk on!!! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this carpet rug pad!!!!
I have never had need of a rug pad before, but i knew i wanted something that would not get stuck to the floor (so not those grid looking rubber/plastic rug pads.) I wish this were a little more padded, but my rug is quite plush enough on it's own.
Gives my rug just the right amount of lift, a soft comforting feeling to my feet and helps keep my rug in place. It arrived in 3 days needed no help placing on the floor. There were creases from where it had been folded for shipping but these were easily removed and rug sat nicely. Thank you I'm delighted with this purchase.
This pad is easy to cut, if you have to. We've had ours under the rug for more than 7 years. It slides a little, but not very much, and the cushioning is comfortable but not too thick. You can definitely feel the difference between the rugs with this padding and the ones we need to get one for. I don't know what it's made of, so you might want to look into the chemical makeup.
This rug pad is really really good. The waffle rubber ones mark up wood floors. This one doesn't and provides a thick wool/felt padding. The Safavieh one is a tiny bit better... but this one is a very close second. I couldn't get the other brand in this size. You may need to trim it if you buy hand made rugs, but that is with all rug pads.
