The STAINMASTER® Carpet Cushion Difference
Choosing the right carpet padding is super-important because your family’s comfort and your carpet’s durability depend on it. Just because you can’t see the cushion under your carpet doesn’t mean it isn’t working hard to help keep your carpet clean, cushy, and odor free. In fact, the higher the quality of the carpet cushion, the more comfortable that your carpet will be underfoot and your carpet will look newer longer.
Unlike most carpet padding, STAINMASTER® carpet cushion features a proprietary breathable moisture barrier that helps keep many common household spills like pet urine from soaking through the carpet and into the cushion and subfloor of your home. So not only does it make clean-up a breeze, STAINMASTER® carpet cushion can actually help prevent stains from reappearing on the carpet.
Many concrete floors naturally emit water vapors which get trapped in the carpet cushion and on the subfloor, and can cause mold and mildew under the carpet. But the breathable moisture barrier in the STAINMASTER® carpet cushion allows these water vapors to pass through the cushion and evaporate, helping protect the cushion from the growth of mold and mildew under your carpet.
Our premium carpet cushion not only improves the appearance of your carpet while helping to prevent loss in carpet height, it also helps make your carpet easier to vacuum, and acts as a barrier to help reduce noise in the room. Whew - that’s some hard working cushion! And while STAINMASTER® carpet cushion can be installed under any carpet, there are additional benefits for installing it under STAINMASTER® PetProtect®, STAINMASTER® Active Family®, STAINMASTER® TruSoft® and STAINMASTER® Essentials® carpets.
