One drawback to this item is that it might take quite a lot of time to lay flat and for all the creases to disappear, which could affect the whole look of our carpet.

With a stain and mold resistant polypropylene material, this rug is an ideal addition for homes with kids and pets. The rug is not very thick, making it perfect if you need sufficient coverage but have to contend with doors that easily open and close. So, I would advise putting it in long hallways and stairs, or the back door to fully utilize its features.
There are 3 sizes for you to choose from, from 22 to 31 inches wide and the length can be up to 60 feet. Therefore, you’re bound to find the perfect sized rug for your hallways and stairs.

All you have to do is gently wipe away any soil or dirt with a wet washing cloth and mild detergent. And feel free to use the vacuum cleaner since it will lay flat without getting caught in the vacuum.
