Since there is no rubber in this rug pad, it does not prevent slipping. This felt rug pad is great under area rugs that are either too large or heavy to move or ones that have furniture holding them down. For a rug that tends to slip on a vinyl or linoleum floor, there is a recycled felt and natural rubber rug pad. Natural rubber is not to be confused with imitation rubber or a rubber like substance which can harm the floor. Natural rubber is completely safe for all vinyl and linoleum floors and does not transfer to the floor.
I have seen many vinyl and linoleum floors damaged from those thinner waffle looking rug pads available in many types of stores. The reason this type of rug pad harms the floor is that the rug pad contains a chemical adhesive sprayed on it. This adhesive is what can transfer to the vinyl or linoleum floor and cause irreversible damage. A felt and felt and rubber rug pad does not contain any adhesive or application and hence does not transfer anything to the floor.
For those looking for a way to protect a rug and protect a vinyl or linoleum floor, the right rug pad will make all the difference. Be sure to find a Carpets store that offers a quality recycled felt or recycled felt and natural rubber combination rug pad to prolong the life of your rug and floor.
