Silk Rug Padding
Silk rugs are shimmery and beautiful to look at and yet so strong. The fibers of a silk rug are soft, and a silk rug can slip and slide so easily on a wooden floor and even on a carpet.
Padding Enhances Longevity of a Rug
Most peole have learned that a quality silk rug pad can keep the rug nice and flat and also in place. Also, a silk rug with padding means that your attractive and expensive silk rug is protected from premature wear and tear. This is because the padding acts as a shock absorb-er for foot traffic.
The density of the silk rug pad preserves the pile of the rug and also helps the silk rug surface to spring back into position after being trodden on.
Non-Slip Padding Prevents Injury
It is good to know that silk rug padding can also be non-slip. This is of critical importance if you want to prevent injury. These non-slip pads do an excellent job keeping the silk rug in place on any tiles or wooden floor.
There are different types of rug pads and they’re made of different materials for you to choose from. You’ll get PVC for instance which is better for rugs on a hard floor. Only thing is, PVC is made from petroleum-based chemicals and isn’t a breathable material. This makes it less used as it sweats as this in itself encourages mold.
PVC isn’t able to absorb or release moisture. This means it sweats and can actually damage the flooring. Then again, there is excellent felt which is very popular for rug padding and which can be used for rugs found on hard flooring or carpeting.
Natural rubber is also a good choice and outperforms plastic padding. It is also thought to be more sustainable to PVC and plastic rug pads. It is often combined with rubber to include the excellent properties of both products. The rubber creates the nonslip benefit that isn’t seen in felt.
