Expert Reviews


What reviewers liked

The felt rug pad by RUGPADUSA does a great job of protecting your floors from damage. This product works especially well for large rugs that are thick enough to stay in place on their own. This product is Green label certified by the Carpet and Rug Institute for low VOC, which means that is mildew and mold resistant.
The best overall on our list. It is composed of pure dense felt that makes it more effective for sound absorption. One of the best things about these pads is that they are available in three different thicknesses; ½-inch, ⅜-inch, and ¼-inch. Therefore, you can easily select one as per your rug or carpet’s requirement.

What reviewers didn't like

We discovered that this type of pad didn’t keep a rug in place at all.
Pad may not be thick enough for highly trafficked areas. The rubber grip does not hold up well on all hard floor surfaces. Bulge in pad may prevent a smooth appeal.
It might be arduous to cut this carpet pad as it would require a carpet knife or a wire cutter. One downside of this rug pad is its poor grip on the floor. Even carpet tape is not available for that purpose. So, it would not be ideal for a tile floor unless you use a rug gripper or carpet tape.
