Reasons to Buy Rug Pads Made in USA
Like with most manufactured products today, rug pads come in various qualities from various countries. While a majority of rug pads come from China, there are significant reasons to buy those made in the USA. Fortunately, Rug Pad Corner manufactures our products in the USA with genuine American products and there are some good reasons for this.
Full Control of Product Production
When a manufacturer is able to visit the factory, this leads to having control over the manufacturing, which in turn results in many fewer production mistakes. Since we manufacture our rug pads in Georgia, we visit our mills several times during the year and this allows us to maintain certain quality standards. Unlike with manufacturing products overseas, by manufacturing domestically, we are able to monitor all aspects of production to assure consistent high quality.
Control the Material Used In The Rug Pads
Unfortunately, many manufacturers hide less desirable materials within the production of their rug pads. Adhesives, as an example, as often used in felt rug pads in place of a more expensive heat pressing process. While the adhesives can keep the felt fibers intact, they cause unwanted harm, such as off-gasses, odors and floor damage. If you are fortunate enough to manufacture in the USA, then you can eliminate the content of adhesives and chemicals.
More Control of Delivery
When we make rug pads in the USA, we have more control of the timing of production, shipping and delivery. Many imported products experience delivery delays due to various issues, such as customs delays, and this can cause inconveniences across the various retail channels. When you buy rug pads made in the USA, you have more control of the delivery.
These are some reasons to buy rug pads made in the USA. While I can think of some more, these few important ones should play a role in anyone's buying process. Most often consumers buy imported rug pads based on a lower cost, yet the savings up front can cost much more in expensive repairs to your floor later on. Also, many imported rug pads pose a health risk as they can off-gas and cause obnoxious odors.
Rug Pad Corner takes great pride in manufacturing rug pads in the USA. Personally, I visit the mills in Georgia throughout the year to assure us that they are consistently using the quality natural materials that we desire, as well as using the highest standards of production. Nothing is perfect, so when we encounter a below standard roll of padding, we immediately reject it so that there's no chance any of it will end up in a customer's home.
