These rug pads are excellent and keep your rug and floors protected while not moving an inch. I used to have the simple rubber pads that were about 1/8" thick under my Persian carpets until we moved and I got my rugs cleaned. The local oriental rug store owner came to pick up my rugs for cleaning and chided me for not having better protection for my valuable rugs and even for my hardwood floors. He was right. After years of moving all over the world and having my rugs sit on different floor types with the simple rubber pads, there was definitely wear on the underside of my Tabriz. The rug store owner showed me the padding he likes best and it is the same as this padding sold on Overstock (same thickness, same backing, same materials). The difference was after spending a fortune to clean the rugs and have some repairs done to the Tabriz, I really didn't want to pay him over *** for two rug pads. So, I looked online and found the same pads at Overstock. Once again, Overstock saved me a load of money since I only had to spend about *** on the two pads. Some people complained that the pads stunk. That wasn't my experience. They smell a little bit on first opening the packages, but that fades quickly. They were easy to cut to exact rug size with some good shears. Most of all, they add significant padding and support to the rugs without moving on the floor and are affordable and necessary protection for your valuable rugs.
