Benefits of Carpet Padding

Using a carpet pad helps to extend the life of your carpet because it protects the fibers and helps prevent wear and tear. Carpet padding allows you to vacuum your carpet more thoroughly, adding to its longevity. A carpet pad will help your carpet stay in place, and hopefully reduce any rippling effect.


Not only does a carpet pad protect your carpet, but it also protects your subfloors underneath. If you choose a stain resistant carpet, but are not able to get to spills fast enough, a carpet pad will protect your subfloors from absorbing moisture or stains. Carpet pads also have sound absorbing qualities, allowing for a much quieter and more peaceful environment. Lastly, a carpet pad adds an extra layer of padding and cushion under your carpet, making your home feel much more comfortable and cozy.
