Q: How do I measure what size I need?
A: Since rugs vary in size from what they are sold at, we always suggest to use a tape measure for exact measurements. Once you know the dimensions, rug pad is usually cut 1” to 2.5" shorter on all sizes to allow the rug to lay down on the edges. Please keep in mind, Most handmade rugs are asymmetrical and may need to be trimmed for exact fit. We custom cut every pad here at Fiber Specialties.
Q: Is it safe for the elderly or people who may shuffle their feet?
A: That is one of the best reasons to purchase rug pad. The rug drapes over the side of the pad creating a ramp or lower profile threshold and also protects the rug from sliding, bunching, wrinkling.
