What Can I Use For A Rubber Washer And Dryer Mat?

By Paige Cerulli Created: February, 2024

Choosing the right washer and dryer mat can help to prevent them from “walking” across the floor during use. Rubber is a highly popular choice for use under washers and dryers, and you’ll find several excellent options at Greatmats.

Reasons to Choose a Rubber Washer and Dryer Mat

A rubber mat for washer and dryer use is ideal for several reasons.

Anti-Slip Design

Rubber has a natural anti skid property that can help to keep your washer and dryer in place. Rubber’s non-skid surface can effectively grip your subfloor and the feet of your washer and dryer. Using a rubber mat under washing machines and dryers can help to keep those machines in place, so you don’t have to worry about trying to reposition them after use.

Anti Vibration Properties

Rubber offers excellent shock absorption, which makes it a great choice as an anti vibration mat. The shock absorption helps to not only reduce the vibrations that you feel in your home, but can also muffle the noise of your washer and dryer for a quieter operation. Choosing a thick rubber mat can enhance these effects.

Subfloor Protection

Using a rubber mat for washing machine and dryer areas also helps to protect your subfloor. The mat can help to prevent your floor from being scratched or worn by the vibrations of the machines.


Rubber is a highly durable product. A washing machine rubber mat can last for years and can be a long-term investment in your laundry room.
