With the proper underlay, the fibers and individual knots of your antique or new rug will be protected against excessive friction/rubbing, which over time could damage the weave unnecessarily.
Additionally, occasional problems can occur when foreign liquids drop onto your carpet (alcohol, chemical cleaning liquids, nail polish remover and the like). Rug padding serves as an added barrier, protecting the flooring under your rug from further damage.
