Bathroom rugs are beautiful. They add a lot of color and style to the room. However, they also can be slippery. How do I keep my bath rug from slipping on the floor? If you have a slip-resistant bath mat, then the answer is yes. Let’s take a look at some of the things you can do that will prevent slips and falls.
Bathroom mats are great to use in place of a rug because it covers the entire area of the floor. However, a mat with a lot of fibers will make a slip-prone area rug harder to clean. A good idea is to use an area rug as a supplement to the mat rather than cleaning the whole rug. Area rugs are usually more expensive, but they don’t cost as much as a carpet at home repair store.
You need to make sure that the rug is sealed. This means that you should either put the rug in a protective plastic bag or seal it with acrylic tape. The idea is that water and even steam can seep into the seams and cause slip. You can purchase rug pads at a local store or online. There are also products on the market that you can put down directly on the ground before placing the rug on top of it. These pads keep the rug from moving while it is on the floor.
If you have a rug area, make sure you place it under a shelf or drop down the table so it is not laying on the floor. If the area rug gets wet, simply blot the area with a white towel and move it to a dry location. When you buy a new rug, check to see if there is a special place to place it to protect it from water. Some area rugs come with holders on them so you can place it exactly where you want.
Many area rugs and area carpets come with cushions attached to the bottom of the rug. If the cushions get wet, they can slide down onto the floor. You can place rugs wherever you want to on the floor, but make sure that it is dry first. Place area rugs where the furniture goes such as the living room or the dining room. This way, it will not catch on things and cause damage.
If you are going barefoot around your house, make sure the rug is laid flat on the floor. If you are going in and out of the house, pick up the rug when it is laid flat and place it under your foot. You can also buy slip resistant socks to wear under your shoes to keep it from sliding.
