Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a pad under my area rug?

A good rug pad definitely helps reduce wear in the traffic lanes in the pile of your rugs, which prolongs their life. In addition, rug padding adds comfort under foot and assists with noise control. Rubber or rubber-backed rug pads help keep smaller area rugs from sliding around on the floor, which provides added safety.

THOMAS carries an eco-friendly line of rug padding, and two of the rug pads we carry even have a special pet urine barrier layer to protect your hard-surface floors from becoming damaged from pet accidents!

If your current rug pads are more than 5 years old, be sure to have us recommend a new custom-fit rug pad that will work best for your rugs and the way you use them!
