Question:

How can I stop my area rug from buckling up?

I have a small area rug that my coffee table sits on. I notice every day that the rug buckles up and I have to keep lifting up the table and setting and smoothing the rug out. Is there something I can do to keep the rug from doing that?

Answer:

There are a number of types of thin pads that you can get to lay under any area rug to stop this. One Brand name is Rug Hold but any others will also work. Know your rog size , buy the proper size to fit since they come in many sizes. Trim to fit with scissors. These are tacky but leave no residue on the rug or carpet. Wash occasionally when they naturally attract dirt and lose the tacky feeling. Make sure you get the type for rug over carpet and not the type you use over hardwood or a hard surface. Edit... And don t use double sided tape it will leave a residue that will attrct dirt and be hard to clean. Any questions you can e mail me through my avatar. GL

Yes, non slip rug underlayment. You should be able to purchase this at larger flooring stores, sometimes larger hardware stores. Possibly at home depot. There are lots of different kinds, some are make for hard surfaces like tile or hardwood, there are different ones for carpeted floors.

I use double-sided carpet tape. It's only about $5 for a big roll of it at Walmart and works like a charm. No more tripping over our area rugs.
