Six Reasons To Use a Rug Pad

1. Rug pads provide a polished, finished look to your fine carpet

2. Particularly important with runners, pads provide a non-slip underlayment

3. A pad underneath the rug provides extra comfort underfoot

4. Pads prevent wrinkling and bunching

5. It is easier to vacuum a rug with a pad underneath it

6. Rug pads provide extra protection for your hard surface floors

"My parents and I have had our antique rugs cleaned by Artisan. My parents’ rugs were given to them by their parents, who received them as wedding gifts around the early 1900’s. These rugs mean a lot to our family. There is also a Chinese Aubusson, which my parents bought in China in the 1930’s. All of the rugs came out looking great and refreshed.

Artisan was polite, prompt, knowledgable and did a wonderful job on my family’s carpets. We will definitely use them again and have already referred friends to Artisan."
