Rugs are laid on the floor for upgradation of the room. They create a soft cover over the hard floor to give you comfort. It is nice to roll on your floor with your kids and pets when a comfortable rug is laid onto the floor. You can leave your kid to play freely on the floor as slipping will not harm them. The cushion made by the rug will save them every time they run jump or fall.
These beautiful things have one problem that can be quite irritating and it is the problem of slipping. To maintain the proper look and style of your shaggy rugs or other types of rugs, you need to have them fixed to their place. There are quite a number of ways to do that which we are now going to discuss.
Rugs slipping on the hard floors:
Some floor materials are slipperiest for rugs. While floor rugs slip most on gloss tiles, other materials, like vinyl, wood and non gloss tiles, also allow rugs to slip. This is a matter of safety. People may face accidents due to the slipping rugs. But the rugs on this kind of floor can be controlled. To stop the rugs form slipping some manufacturers use rubber pad which is often in built. This rubber helps to hold the rug onto its place. The rugs with in- built rubber pad must be maintained properly or it can become harden and the quality may deteriorate. These products must not be washed in hot water and put in the sun for drying.
Rugs slipping on the carpet:
Carpets are sometimes made cosy with the help of rugs. Carpets have pile which is compressed whenever some movement is made on it. The compression makes the carpet to move sideways. If a rug is placed onto it, the carpet will make the rug move along with it. The only way is to choose carpets with less pile height. Less height will prevent the movement of the carpet and the rug at the same time.
There are solutions to stop rugs from slipping. Rug lock is a product which has a special dry adhesive. These adhesives easily hold onto any surface. This product is used on the underside of the rug to fix it to the floor. Depending on the size of the rug or carpet and the amount of movement on the rug, the amount of the rug lock must be used. Another is rug underlay made of white foam. They are good to use under the hallway rugs and doormats. For maximum security, it is really important to use these kinds of products.
