Why Carpet Padding is Necessary?
The carpet padding you choose is just as important as the carpet itself. Choose luscious, soft carpet padding to minimize noise, maximize warmth, prioritize your family’s comfort and extend the life of your floor.
Why Carpet Padding?

Carpet padding, or cushion, is the unseen comfort that makes your carpet look and feel great. Carpet pad supports the floor by minimizing noise and maximizing warmth and can even extend the life of your carpet.

Benefits of padding:
  • Supports your carpet, helping it last longer
  • Gives your carpet a richer, thicker, softer feel
  • Brings warmth and quiet to your home by absorbing sound
  • Increases insulation, making your space more energy efficient
  • Keeps your carpet cleaner, allowing greater air flow and dirt removal during vacuuming
