As a homeowner, there are many parts of your home that you may not know much about, especially the parts of your home that you don’t ever see. Carpet padding may be a mystery to you, but with years of experience in this industry, we know a thing or two about it that may be helpful for you to understand.
Regardless of the type of carpet that you have installed, carpet padding is an essential product that will need to be installed, as well. If you are having carpet replaced, it is likely that you should replace the padding, too. There may even be situations when there is water damage that requires the pad be replaced even if the carpet doesn’t need to be. One important function of the carpet pad is to absorb water, liquids, and spills to avoid contact with the sub-floor of your home.
Carpet padding is a material that is installed between the sub-flooring and the carpet. It has a variety of purposes. It contributes to additional comfort, and it also protects the sub-flooring. If you were to feel the sub-floor beneath the carpet with no buffer, it would be hard and uncomfortable. A lack of carpet padding would also lead to more frequent damage to the sub-floor. Any spills, leaks, or water damage could result in needing serious repairs that are entirely preventable when padding is properly installed.
