What Kind of Carpet padding is Best?
There are some pretty amazing innovations in carpet these days, such as waterproof to stain resistant and amazingly soft. So it can be hard to imagine you’d need to add anything extra, especially to pad down those already luxurious fibers. Although it is true that adding carpet cushion, or carpet pad, can provide a great feel, the more important aspect is the protection it provides to the carpet above and the subfloor below. Similar to how a canvas backing will protect an area rug, make it more durable and protect the flooring underneath, carpet padding will increase the lifetime of your carpet. Read below to find out how to install carpet in the most effective way.
