Carpet padding often has people wondering why it is necessary. Little do they know this protects the carpet from heavy foot traffic. Likewise, it resists heavy furniture from wearing the carpet down against the bare floor. Padding also cushions the impact of every footstep.
This also allows for more thorough cleaning. With padding beneath the carpet, a vacuum is able to raise up the carpet and have enough suction to remove dirt. This helps keep allergens in the home down.
Carpet padding also provides thermal insulation. Sub floors and concrete floors are cold and can create an unwelcoming atmosphere. Your home has another layer of protection against that unwanted chill. It will add warmth and increases the life of the carpet.
Carpet is less durable without padding. In fact, some warranties require you to use a proper padding. Be sure to inquire about your carpets warranty. This ensures you are taking all possible measures in the event that you will have to use the provided warranty. Also talk with our experts about how you expect your carpet to feel beneath your feet. If you like a more solid type of carpet feel: the product you will want to discuss would be that of a higher density. If you are looking for a softer feel, that is more of a plushy feeling beneath your feet, then you will want less density.
This product is out of sight, out of mind but the wrong pad can make or break the carpet.
