The felt products without rubber backing are also functional for not harming floors.. The pads that seem to cause the most problems are the PVC products from China. For the most part, we feel, these products will not harm floors. But there have been circumstances we have heard about where they have been blamed for causing harm. In speaking with industry experts about coating PVC, we know that coating PVC is a very delicate process and must be controlled to the exact specifications each time. The curing oven must be set to the proper curing temperatures. The coating speed must be exact every time. The PVC coating compound must be made to the exact same specification each time.

Plus, it is cheaper to replace a stained pad that it is to have to buy a car. Another plus to the pad's absorbency is that it also will protect the floor from getting stained by a spill.

And since they don't need prior installation, they can easily be replaced when redecorating or even brought along with during a move of residence.
