Carpet pad is out of sight, but it's not invisible.

Carpet pad doesn't get the attention it deserves. There just hasn't been enough education on how quality carpet pads are the source behind added comfort and durability in your carpeting. Often times, people choose the least expensive pad option, rather than focusing on enhancing the quality of the carpeting. But the comfort and durability of carpeting is dependent on the pad underneath it. It's well worth a longer look and the extra investment.

Other benefits of carpet pad.

Carpet pad has other benefits beyond comfort and durability. Carpet pad insulates your home for better energy efficiency and reduces noise. Many pads are also hypoallergenic and good for the indoor air quality of your home. You will also have the choice of picking carpet pad with a moisture barrier to protect against spills and antimicrobial features that defend against mold, mildew, and odor-causing bacteria.

Protect your investment.

It's a wise choice to select the highest-quality carpet pad you can afford. You've already made a large investment in new carpeting, and the pad will provide assurance that your carpet stays in great shape for an extended period of time.
