When it comes to durability, padding, or underlayment, is just as important as the type of fiber used to make the carpet. Padding is usually made of polyurethane foam, the material used to make mattresses. It absorbs the impact of foot traffic, and it makes the carpet more comfortable to walk on. In addition to cushioning, padding provides insulation, sound absorption, and subfloor protection. Carpeting needs to be paired with the correct padding. A 7/16-inch pad is standard, but a short pile carpet often needs a thinner pad.
