WE can look at this in many ways.
The way I am looking is the result of a friend.
Many of us have throw rungs scattered around the house.
My friend was selling a piano and had buyer come into the home to see it.
The throw rug was on a hard wood floor with no tacky back.
Yup, the buyer slipped and fell.
Lucky for both, he was not hurt, but it could have been devastating financially.
The one issue I tell my clients is to "GET RID OF THE RUGS".
Have a tacky back rug at the entrance or even outside the door, but the rest are a hazard.
Have a buyer fall in your home because of the rugs and they may own the home without paying you a penny!
