Performance Rug Pad is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 94.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great Rug Pad from Ballard! This is another great rug pad from Ballard. I use this under the Marina rug at my front door entryway to protect the wood floor. When necessary, I soap up and rinse off just like the rug!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You'll love this one! The absolute best rug pad ever. I'v used just about every type on the market (I thought), until I received this one. It's the the best I've ever used. It stays in place, provides a wonderful pad for my area rug and I wish I had it under all my rugs. Just a matter of time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Performance Rug Pad Ordered this product to place under a 7ish by 10ish light carpet; as advertised, it was easy to cut to size and even used the remainder to place under another small carpet in our guest closet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional rug pad & Customer service! Unfortunately it turns out I don’t need this rug pad. It’s the nicest rug pad I’ve ever seen. Cushiony, sturdy & I looks like it’d last for several generations. I’d unwrapped the pad from all its plastic wrapping & placed it on a bench in my home where it remained for a month, waiting for me to place it. With a change in design plans, I determined I wouldn’t need the pad after all. I called customer service just to ask if they’d even consider my returning it, thinking a return would clearly be rejected. I spoke with Ginger, who was so accommodating! She assured me that my returning it would not be a problem - despite my having unwrapped it & thrown away packaging & packing slip, as well as it being past 30 days! She is mailing me a bag in which I am to place the pad. She also emailed a UPS shipping label. Wow! So impressed with this service:))

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rug Pad Great nonslip rug “pad,” while it’s not particularly thick it is sturdy and my rug doesn’t budge.
Date published: 2019-09-18
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than most Rugs slip a bit off the rug pad, but would slip a lot more without it.
Date published: 2022-12-23
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Useful Thick pad, still not perfect for holding rug in place.
Date published: 2022-12-15
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well, would like more sizes I wish they came in sizes that matched better to the performance rugs, but it's doing the job well nonetheless.
Date published: 2022-11-15
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rug pad The rug pad is fine but doesn’t keep the rug from sliding on the pad. I’m constantly adjusting it.
Date published: 2022-03-11
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rug Stays Put Oriental Rug doesn't shift around on the floor. Pad keeps it steadily in place.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rug Pad Very good pad , will purchase again for another rug. I would recommend
Date published: 2020-07-24
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rug Pad Seems to wear well. It is a rug pad under a low weave carpet.
Date published: 2019-05-18
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Super thin I'm returning it. I bought one of the Eland performance rugs to go over this pad. The rug is rather stiff and does not lie flat on this pad. It's a sheet of material like an over-ground pool liner. Barely compressible if you pinch it between your fingers.
Date published: 2022-03-29
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Non-slip rug pad Performs as it was noted - non-slip keeps everything in place well. But I anticipated it would be thicker and it’s actually paper thin.
Date published: 2021-09-16
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Rather get cheaper ones off Amazon Meh...I bought it from Ballard thinking it would be superior quality than from other retailers but it does not hold it's grip on the floor and I am constantly readjusting it. It was a waste of money to purchase.
Date published: 2022-08-06
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Doesn’t stay It slips around under a lighter rug and doesn’t stay in place
Date published: 2020-05-12
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Less that what I expected This rug pad does not prevent slipping nor is it very thick. It does not match the description of “performance”.
Date published: 2023-03-05
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Performance Rug Pad This pad slipped on hardwood floors and the rug slipped off the pad.
Date published: 2022-11-15
Rated 1 out of 5 by from These literally do nothing and they’re bright blue These pads literally do nothing. My rugs slip and slide all over the place and the pads are bright blue and peek out 87 times a day which is not a good look under my neutral rugs. I literally hate them as I have to straighten my rugs a gazillion tomes everyday. If you are buying these to keep your rugs in place, do not buy them.
Date published: 2022-10-21
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Avoid. Completely worthless. Doesn’t stay out on the ground and doesn’t keep the rug from moving around at all. Even tried taping. It’s in a main walkway so has become a daily battle.
Date published: 2021-12-05
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not work with carpet This pad did not help keep our rug in place. I contacted customer support BEFORE purchasing and asked if it would help with a rug that is over carpet and they replied that it certainly would; however, it actually seemed to make the rug worse. It would probably work well under a rug that was on an uncarpted space but do not use with carpet.
Date published: 2021-06-28
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does NOT stay put... This pad only gets any stars because it is fairly well padded. However, it slides ALL over my floor is is constantly coming out from beneath the rug. We have two small dogs and two young kids. I am always having to adjust the rug because it is sliding all over the mud room.
