I ended up building a gym in my basement at the end of July since I missed lifting and didn't feel comfortable returning to the gym.
The issue with my original setup was the flimsy floor pads. I had lost a bit of my strength so it wasn't an immediate issue, but as my deadlift weight was increasing, I was worried about protecting my floor. I finally sprung for some horse stall mats and some plywood and built myself a deadlift platform.
It was a fun little DIY project that cost just shy of $300. Hardest part was finding the mats. In case anyone needs plans for one,
these are the instructions for the one I built
