A common misconception with regards to the carpet cushion is that it serves the purpose of providing comfort underfoot. Though this is on the list of purposes that it serves, it is not the main purpose of the carpet padding. Carpet padding is actually designed and meant to absorb the constant force of foot traffic. High quality carpet cushioning will withstand the pounding of foot traffic and not lose its shape, leaving you with unsightly traffic patterns throughout your home.
You can think of your carpet’s cushion as a sort of shock absorber, where the purpose is to absorb the force of the foot instead of that job falling on the carpeting itself. Therefore, by investing in a quality pad or cushion you are in an essence dramatically extending the life of your new carpet. The higher the quality of the cushion and greater the grade, the more odor, bacteria and mildew resistant the carpet will be. Take note of the carpet cushion that you purchase, as many carpet manufacturers will void their warranty if a certain grade cushion is not used because they know that it will decrease the life of the carpet itself.
