This is supposedly an indoor-outdoor rug, so we put it on the deck when it was delivered. We had two days of rain in the following week; after the rain, we waited two more days then checked the rug to see if it was dry. It was (a) full of water, and (b) stuck to the deck. The black backing had adhered lightly to the wood floor, and we had to be very gentle to get it off there. Since we needed to dry it -- and because we didn't want it to stick to the deck railings -- we draped it instead over our new outdoor furniture (BH&G products which we like VERY much). This seemed safe because FORTUNATELY the furniture was shielded by protective covers which we had bought from the Cover Store. All this is new stuff, you understand, because we finally were refurbishing our deck. Anyway, after a further two days, we checked and the rug was dry. But the black backing had the rug stuck like glue to the furniture covers. This time gentle handling did no good. The backing stuck to the covers and nothing we did could loosen it. We finally just pulled it free. It left a mess of black rubbery substance everywhere it had touched the new furniture covers, and in several places, the nap itself had been pulled free and left tiny holes in the rug. We were appalled and heartbroken. We dragged it into the shed, and there it remains. If you plan to use this rug for anything but light INDOOR traffic, I would suggest you move on to consider a different item. Sold as an indoor/outdoor rug, this piece was exposed to two days of rain and four days of sunshine, both of which are standard issue outdoor situations. Neither was handled well by the product, and somehow they combined to create an ugly, destructive condition.
