Tips for Using Vacuum Tools - If you choose to use a vacuum tool attachment in lieu of the actual vacuum cleaner itself, take care not to use excessive suction. Many vacuum cleaners allow you to control the amount of suction that is used in such situations; set yours so that it's not sucking too hard on your area rug. Watch Out for the Fringe - The fringed border of an area rug should be avoided when vacuuming. Fringe can fray or even get wrapped up around the beater brush of a vacuum cleaner. Nothing detracts from the appearance of a gorgeous rug quite like stray pieces of fringe, so always use caution.
Another important function of a rug pad is to find one that will work on top of carpet flooring. Putting a rug on top of carpet is very common. But rugs tend to move and buckle a lot when over carpet. We looked at all of the rug pad types and found the best rug pad for using over carpet is the rubber backed felt rug pads. The installation needs to be the reversed from when using with hard surface flooring. To properly install over carpet, put the felt side to the carpet and rubber side of the pad against the rug. It is amazing how effective this product is for using over carpet.
Your rug pads help to soften sound and provide a buffer under your area carpet, as well as helping to prevent them from moving around. When your carpet slides around on the floor it is a serious safety hazard for the young and old alike; pads help prevent slippage. Moreover, rugs that move around and are not aligned with the floor and walls give the room a very shabby look and all your expensive décor can be ruined by an out of place mat. Here again pads are invaluable in helping to keep the rug in place. These pads help to extend the life of an area rug as well as protect carpets and floors. One of the main purposes of these pads is to preserve and protect the carpet.
