pad for muffling noise for oriental rug (over wood floor)
« on: June 27, 2014, 03:41:53 AM »
I need advice on which pad to get to put under a large oriental rug (over wood floor).  My downstairs neighbors complain that when the children run/jump they have to put ear plugs...  Anyone has suggestions for the kind of pad that will not damage the wood floor, would protect the rug, but would also muffle the pounding from children running and jumping?  Thanks!

Normally we would recommend our mass loaded vinyl w/closed cell foam but since it is only for area rugs I would use a #8 density carpet padding with some double sticky sided tape and tape the carpet pad to the area rug.
