Rug Pad Production
How it starts
The beginning of the process goes something like this, a client calls looking to make a rug pad purchase. We then get an exact measurement of the rug. We do not measure the fringe, as the fringe does not require any padding. We then plan to make the pad 1.5 inches smaller than the rug on all sides. This is important, as it will limit tripping hazards by giving a gentle incline instead of a dramatic difference in height from the bare floor. A second reason for making the pad this way is so that it is easier for you to keep the pad from popping out and being seen. A good pad will help preserve your area rug, yet never be known. Seeing a rug pad is not really a fashionable choice.
Cutting From the Roll
Caution is important, as the razor blade is extremely sharp. Notice how Corey’s hand is behind the path of the blade.
Once all the points have been cut, the piece is finished. All that is left is for us to roll up the pad and bag it for pick up or delivery. This particular order was made late Friday, and ready for pick up Saturday morning.
