So, the custom flooring project in your home is finally complete. That’s great! Now it’s time to choose what type of carpeting to put over it. Before you get too far ahead of yourself, it’s important to pause for a minute and consider why padding should indeed be placed under your new carpet. Sure, it may seem like an unnecessary expenditure, especially after a time-consuming flooring project. However, the investment is definitely worth it! Here at Claghorn Custom Flooring, we’ve assembled just a few reasons why padding should always be placed under carpeting on your floors. Read on to find out why.

Carpet Padding

Comfort While Walking

Placing padding under your rugs and carpets can greatly increase comfort while walking on them. This is especially important if children or the elderly reside in your household.

Ensuring Safety

Padding can also prevent carpeting from shifting and bunching up after usage. This can pose a safety hazard to people in your home. However, by keeping the carpeting firmly in place with padding, you can avoid this and ensure your family and guests are always safe.

Keeping Your Carpets and Floors Clean

Padding, in addition, can go a long way in keeping both your floors and carpets clean. It’s an excellent way to increase the airflow between your carpet and the floor, making it much easier to vacuum and thus keep clean.

Increasing the Life of Your Carpeting

Carpet padding is also a great way to increase your carpet’s lifespan. It can reduce damage to your rug or carpet, making it last much longer overall.

Keeping Your Flooring in Prime Condition

Finally, carpet padding can also help protect your floor as well as your rugs and carpets. It can prevent liquid spills from damaging sensitive flooring and also prevent dirt and dust from scratching up your floors.
