Oriental Rug Padding
Every beautiful rug you have, you want to extend its life for as long as you possibly can. Not many people know that rug padding is one way that extends the life of your rug. In fact these rug pads serve a number of useful purposes –
- the rug is softer to walk on
- the padding provides thermal insulation
- the padding helps with reducing sound
- padding prolongs wear and tear of the rug, taking the strain of foot traffic and acting as a shock absorbed.
If it weren’t for the padding, your Oriental rug would show signs of abuse long before it should.
It doesn’t matter what kind of flooring you have, rug padding is beneficial and recommended.
Different kinds of Padding
Not all padding is the same, and you might find polyurethane foam, while other kinds of pad are made from rug fibres, rubber or urethane. We help you choose the right rug padding and we also help you choose the proper thickness and density.
We’re full of useful knowledge and we’ll also advise you on rug padding with a moisture barrier – ideal for homes where there are pets and toddlers.
Be careful about Padding
Handwoven Oriental rugs can last for generations if you provide them with the right amount of care and protection. There are actually many kinds of rugs that fall under the name ‘Oriental rugs – those rugs made in Asia and the Middle East. They’re hand-knotted, handwoven, or hand-loomed and like artwork, can last for generations.
When it comes to valuable Orientals, it’s important to choose a high-quality rug pad to protect your rug.
Because real Oriental rugs are made of quality natural fibers,you want to not deter from the rug’s beauty by making use of inferior, cheap padding. It is therefore not a good idea to hand your Oriental rug into just any so-called ‘rug expert’.
Protecting Rug Knots
The padding has to be a good fit – be dense enough to protect the rug. Also, Oriental rugs usually have hand tied knots on the back of the rug – the part that rests on the floor.
You want to protect the knots from rubbing and this is why we suggest a dense felt rug which prevents the Oriental rug knots from wearing.
