    Hi guys

    Got a customer who has a 6x10ft Chinese superwash rug which is rucking on their new carpet
    We cleaned this rug a couple of months ago & apparently "it never did this before it was cleaned"!!!!?
    Nothing to do with it having spent 30 years on a wood floor & now they've moved to an apartment block for doghnuts with far too much money that has 10mm twist pile carpet! LOL

    Anyhow, Foxi has usually been pretty good but I'm not sure if it would be okay on such a heavyweight rug. Don't fancy spending £90 on the stuff (plus fitting as that's what the client wants) only to get a call saying it still walks

    Anyone any ideas if Foxi or similar is okay or is there better?

    thanks

    The rug will be moving with the carpet pile, just as when we test for pile direction with paper and pencil.

    Foxi is still available with quite a bit of choice from John Lewis, Dunelm, Amazon etc. etc.

    Safe and happy slip and sliding :smile:

    Hi Ken
    Yep know that, it was fun having to try to educate him, just wondering if Foxi would be good enough for such a heavyweight

    Trevor is right, 4” nails are better.

    Seriously, Foxi is still among the best but nothing is guaranteed to work 100% on thick piled fitted carpet. You can buy it direct from:
    Rattcliffe underlays just google it and you’ll find them. Tell Peter Rattcliffe I recommended you.
