Question:

Stabilizing an Area Rug?

How can you keep an area rug from bunching up/wrinkling over a carpeted floor?By the way, the rug is fairly new.

Answer:

Never a double sided tape, it will leave a residue and attract dirt. The use of a pad as some say is the right way to go. Its actually a very thin mat that goes under the rug. It has a tacky feeling but leaves no residue. There are a couple different types for your rugs. Some are made for rugs over hard wood ( allows the wood to breathe ). Some for rug over carpet and some for rugs over a hard surface. These don t react with a vinyl and stain the vinyl. After a few months, depending on your foot traffic, they lose there tackiness because they naturally collect dirt. They are washable and return to their natural state and work again. Some will suggest the mats you use for cupboards, these will work and also can ruin vinyl or a hard wood. Any questions you can e mail me through my avatar..GL

had rug pads to use on area rugs which are over a carpeted floor. They come in all sizes, so measure your rug to get the right size.

Hi there! Three are 3 ways I know of and they're all pretty easy and relatively inexpensive... -Double sided tape -Velcro tape -A rug pad (may or may not need double-sided tape to get the rug to stick to the pad) Good luck!

If a rug pad doesn't work, staple or tack it down.
