Selecting the Right Carpet Pad – What You Need To Know!

A certain type, thickness and density of padding is required by every carpet manufacturer to maintain your carpet warranty.

Be sure to check with the carpet manufacturer directly. Do not expect the retailer to choose the correct pad for you, as it is your responsibility to make sure the correct pad is installed. If the wrong type, thickness or density pad is used, your carpet may develop wrinkles which is costly to fix and can significantly decrease the life span of your carpet.
