Without doubt, one of the best things you can do for your Oriental rug is to use a quality underlayment. The importance of a quality underlayment in the overall longevity and esthetic performance of an Oriental or area rug cannot be overstated. Proper underlayment provides a safe non-skid footing for the rug.It provides cushioning against traffic related wear on face fibers and reduces weakening effects of abrasive soils that work their way into the foundation yarns. A proper cushion allows the carpet to breathe and provides a way for moisture to wick out of the carpet instead of being trapped between the rug backing and the floor. This contributes to an overall healthier environment for the rug and your home in general.
Many people want a pad under their rug but make the mistake of using padding made for wall to wall installed carpet. A proper underlayment for an Oriental or area rug is denser and with a lower profile than wall to wall pad, giving the rug the required cushion but allowing it to lie properly on top of the pad.
If your carpet was not installed properly and has not been stretched to its fullest extent, you may find it has ripples. Add to the improper installation Florida’s moist climate, you may be in need of some carpet repair. Rippling, wrinkling, buckles, bumps and waves are common problems that can be relatively easily fixed by re-stretching – and fixing these things can really transform the way a room looks.
