Protects my wood floor
Your review: We are using this mat in our home. We have a wood floor. We have a newly constructed salt water pool. We wanted a large area rug inside the sliding doors from our deck to manage the traffic and potential for water getting tracked inside. The rug is attractive (chose style without the exposed rubber edge). It doesn't slip (we ordered the appropriate backing for hardwood floor). I'm pleased with the appearance and function. I may order another rug for the side entrance to our home as well. Although it has a tile floor - I think a runner mat would be excellent for preventing wet feet from slipping on the tile on their way to the bathroom.
