Wood floors and furniture (preventing damage) Sign In/Join 
posted
I have new solid wood floors and I read the instructions on what NOT to do and it says don't use rubber backed floor mats , where do I find an approved vinyl rug underlayment and breathable rugs for my kitchen and in front of outside doors that won't move.

Also under large furniture, queen size sofa sleeper, lazy boy chairs what do I put under them?

Thanks!

Hello perplexed!

The underlayment to keep your floors safe and your rugs in place is a non-slip floor gripper pad.

Placed between the floor and rug, these pads range from small to very large ... and even provide additional padding for comfort under your feet.

I use these in my home and strongly recommend them.

Check with your Flooring Associate ... they are displayed near the throw rugs.
