There are many benefits to carpet padding, such as softness, cushion, and some even hold those pesky rugs in place- but it all depends on the thickness! Below we’ll explain these benefits, and hopefully convince you to install carpet padding beneath your carpet, as it’s so great for your flooring and home in general! Serving Austin, Texas and surrounding areas.


A Little Extra Cushion for Our Sensitive Feet


Have you ever walked on carpet without padding? Notice the huge difference! With some types of carpet, it almost feels as if you’re just walking on the (concrete) foundation. But carpet padding provides your flooring with an extra layer of comfortable cushion, so your carpet will truly feel softer. You’ll want to walk around on it all day long!


An Increase in Carpet’s Longevity


Carpet padding absorbs the impact on carpet made by foot traffic, which helps preserve its backing and binding! So yes, carpet padding can actually help your carpet last much longer!


Area and Oriental Rugs Finally Stay Stationary


At last, no more constant shifting of your area and oriental rugs. It’s very common for them to slip and slide all over the place with foot traffic, and this can actually pose a threat to your family!
