Answer: 
Yes, you can use this padding for under area rugs. You will need to use an anti-slip tape from the floor to the padding to prevent sliding or bunching.

Answer: 
You can absolutely use this carpet padding for the area rug, just make sure you have good rug traction tape to ensure it is safely ensure it is down on the floor without movement.
I realize you are probably renting in the apartment, but you can also help deaden sounds by adding screws into the wood floors (if that's what you have).

I only mention it bc some of the sound-deadening screws we sell have heads that snap-off, leaving you with a clean look like nothing was ever put into the wood floor.

Hello HD,

I'd like to know how it is accomplished, to order a custom-sized rug using this material. I only need a 11 x 13.5 size rug. Is the pad sewn to the carpet itself? What is the backing? And how is it finished #edged?# What is the lead time you need until a finished product is ready? Can it be delivered or is it only for pick-up?

Thank you.

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. The pad is not sewn to the carpet. This is a rebond product which has a moisture barrier top. The product is available in rolls of 6' x 45' - 30 sq yd rolls. Can be ordered online and shipped to the store.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 3.4 out of 5 by 25 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Plastic Pieces embedded in pad Since our carpet was installed a few months ago, we noticed various spots where it felt like something hard was under the carpet. Pulled up carpet to see that there was firm-plastic like pieces in the pad. Called HD to see if anything could be done, and they said no-that that is how it is made since it is made out of recycled materials and that all of their eco-recycled pads can be the same way. Apparently they use any part of the shoe. Don't know who would want to have plastic in something that is supposed to be soft and add cushion. Would not recommend. June 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Eco friendly quality Love this stuff! This is the second time I've purchased this product. Way better cushion than standard construction grade. Installed over cement floors in basement and feels soft as if it were over wood. Just make sure if purchasing in store you get assistance. Rolls are heavy and you don't want to mistakenly purchase a roll damaged by water. June 4, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good quality carpet, but want better delivery options. The carpet is of very good quality. I installed carpet in the 70's and 80's professionally, and the backing is a good bit more brittle than I remember it. The backing seems like a synthetic composite rather than the old fashioned (and tougher/more pliable) jute, but overall it installed well, looks just, is just like the sample, and feels great. My family is thrilled. However the obligation of picking it up and hauling it to my house myself was onerous. I would have paid ~$100 to have it brought the 9 miles from the local Home Depot to my home. HD should re-think the delivery options. April 8, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Poor quality, compresses easily, too soft. I'm 68 years old, and have built a number of houses, and I have never had a problem with carpet padding until using this pad. It compresses very easily, and does not support weight, allowing one to feel whatever is your subfloor. If concrete, that is what you are going to feel, and if it is a traffic area as a hallway, the pad compresses with very little use. I have had the pad for 3 months, and I am the only occupant of the house, and at traffic points, the pad is permanently compressed. I'm surprised that anyone would sell this pad, since it has no redeeming features, it isn't even that cheap, and it does a very poor job. I have rental houses, and the pads I put in those which were cheaper than this pad, have worked significantly better. February 20, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JUNK this is the cheapest pad ive ever used. It rips apart right out of the bag and even tears when trying to roll it out . I would save your money and buy the contractor pad instead February 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent pad We purchased this pad a year ago to go under new carpet. I had it laid by a professional installer who lightly glued the center portions and tacked it to the parameter tack strip. I don't know if they have changed the manufacturing components since then, but it is noiseless and comfortable to walk on. I would not be looking at replacing it now except that we had a massive flood from the unit above forcing us to replace one small section of the pad due to mousture. December 28, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Lumpy and Noisy I'm heading to HD right now to talk about my recent installation. The Nike padding is lumpy feeling. In one spot in a traffic area, there is a hard lump which feels like a rock under a shoe. The installer came back, pulled up the carpet, and showed me the firm, dime sized, full thickness piece he removed, which was hard as a rock. Much to my surprise, there is still a lump. Not sure if he removed a different lump or what. Also, in a prominent living room spot is a place which croaks like a frog. I gave it a week hoping it would resolve but it's still very loud. I can squeak it 10 times and there's no change in the sound. There are smaller squeak spots elsewhere. Overall, it feels uneven and slightly lumpy. I'm not very happy with it...maybe I got a bad roll(?) April 8, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Having to replace after 1 year I had this padding installed at a rental house almost a year ago to this day. I went to view the house yesterday as the tenant is moving out and found that the padding has held up poorly. It literally feels like you are walking on concrete in the living room and more traveled parts of the house. The less used areas still feel cushy. The worst part is that the carpet is wearing faster since there is no cushioning to keep it from getting smashed by the concrete when you are walking. I would recommend choosing another padding as this one had a very short lifespan. The house only had two people living in it. July 8, 2015
