    Choosing Carpet Pad



    Often forgotten and lacking in the credit it deserves, carpet pad adds comfort, durability, insulation and noise reduction. Some even have a moisture barrier, as well as antimicrobial features to protect against mold, mildew and odor causing bacteria.

    Did you know carpets that are placed without a carpet pad lose an average of 19 percent of their height over a period of time, while carpets placed on carpet pads lose only 5 to 10 percent? Not to mention the pad helps absorb furniture and footstep stress.

    But, how do you know which pad to choose? There are many factors to consider when choosing your pad. Type of carpet purchased, comfort level, insulation needs, and environmental concerns. There are so many carpet choices, it’s no wonder there are so many choices of pad as well.
