Carpet care: protecting your investment

Carpet pad plays a vital role in carpet maintenance

A new carpet is a serious investment. Carpeting can change the look and feel of a house while providing a myriad of benefits, including comfort, insulation, noise reduction, and visual appeal. And proper carpet care can help maintain these benefits longer by extending the life of the carpet. Carpet pad is a crucial element in the life of a carpet, protecting it from wear and tear. In fact, the addition of carpet pad can mean the difference between a comfortable or uncomfortable carpet.

Carpets in high-traffic areas suffer the most from wear and tear. Heavy furniture can also cause indentations in the carpet, some of which can be permanent. One way to mitigate this damage is to reduce the level of travel or place small, removable rugs in the area. However, this isn't always possible. In cases where high-traffic is necessary and rugs aren't a possibility, carpet life can be extended with carpet pad. Premium carpet padding performs as a shock absorber and can dramatically reduce the level of strain on the carpet, keeping it looking new and feeling luxurious much longer.

Crushing, a decrease in pile thickness, is another common problem in high-traffic areas. Regular vacuuming can help reduce the appearance of crushing by fluffing up the carpet fibers. Carpet pads can also help reduce crushing by providing more support and absorbing the impact of footsteps or furniture. Similar to crushing, matting (the untwisting and intermingling of yarn due to foot traffic) can also occur. Matting can be attributed to several factors, including improper maintenance, failure to install carpet padding, or using a carpet pad that is not suitable for the particular carpet. Researching the correct carpet pad to use for a specific carpet can help deter matting. Choose a premium carpet pad for high-quality performance in your home.

Carpet pads are available that inhibit the growth of mold and mildew with antibacterial properties that prevent microorganisms from multiplying. These carpet pads also fight odors and stains to maintain freshness in the carpet.

Carpet upkeep is important to keep it looking and feeling great, and installing the right carpet pad can keep the carpet safe from damage and odor-causing bacteria.
