Question:

Why does my rug keep moving?

I have a 5x8ft rug on my bedroom floor and It seems like every other day it is crooked and I have to readjust it to be square with my bed. WHY DOES IT KEEP MOVING? I barely walk across it, sit on it, or even move on it. It is on carpet and even has a box of clothes sitting on the one corner of it. But the box just moves with it! Why does this keep happening?

Answer:

The carpet is the reason the rug keeps moving. when anything steps on the rug the carpet tufting is crushed and then bounces back and moves the rug. It always goes the same direction doesn't it? I have rugs over my carpets and only my cats walk around the house during the day time and the rugs will have moved toward the front door all the time. Putting a coffee table or he couch or a heavy chair may stop the rug from crawling .

If you do not have a pad under the rug then the rug will move depending on the direction of the nap. Jo ann

An area rug pad will solve this problem. They are inexpensive and easily cut to the size you need. An area rug pad will also extend the life of your area rug.
