Bamboo Rugs and Furniture



We saw a bamboo rug for sale locally, and were wondering how they hold up underneath heavy weight from large tables? We like the idea of easy cleanup, but don't want to damage it! 





Bamboo Rugs are surprisingly durable.  However, for applications under heavy furniture & small contact points with little weight distribution, be wary:  If you were use standard furniture coasters to spread the weight, it should be fine. 

Many of the bamboo rugs available come manufactured with a thin felt lining fixed to the reverse side.  For typical free-standing applications, we do recommend thin padding or non-skid.  If you plan on placing heavy furniture on top, even with coasters, too thick a padding may provide too much "give," and after time may lead to denting.

You will want to inspect under the rug periodically (2x a year) to sweep out dirt and debris, and ensure the rug is not oxidizing varnish.  You may be able to get away with a thin non-skid, but this should also be checked upon as we have seen small spills affix lower grade underlining to the floor and/or carpet.

For all those interested in submitting a question to the Rug Rag Editors:  We'd be more than happy to help, please send some photographs of the reverse side of the rug very close up with a quarter placed on the knots, plus a picture of the fringe, the whole face of the rug and detail shot of the pile.  If the rug is worn, please include photographs of worn areas.  For rugs of any age, please be sure to check for dry areas, moth damage, odor, and whether or not the rug is straight/has right angles where called for.  If you have any questions about our assessment request feel free to send us an email.  Otherwise, we are looking for something similar to these images posted here
