It is very easy if you have the correct underlay. A new product just released called GILTGRIP® Rug Grip does a great job and I stock it. This replaces the sticky blue underlay that many of you will be familiar with. Properly installed, it is guaranteed not to mark, stain, oxidize or discolour, finished and maintained floors and carpeting
Works on carpeting
The white side will grip any textile floor covering (fitted carpet). GILTGRIP® adheres firmly to your rug and carpet and so helps to prevent slipping or falling over. Place the underlay white side down facing the carpet; then place the rug on top of the gray side.
Works on hard floor
The gray side is ideal for use on hard flooring surfaces such as marble, hardwood, ceramic, vinyl or stone. GILTGRIP® adheres firmly to your rug and floor. Place the underlay gray side down; then place the rug on top of the white side.
Prior to installing GILTGRIP®, the floor should be vacuumed, clean and dry. Do not install the Rug Grip on a wet floor. In order to obtain a long-lasting non-skid performance, avoid frequent removal and re-installation of the Rug Grip from its designated installation area
