When it comes to carpet, don’t take the quality of carpet cushion lightly. Carpet cushion affects the luxury felt underfoot and the carpet’s quietness, resilience, cleaning, insulation and even its lifespan. Quality cushion helps resist the crushing or flattening of carpet fiber before its useful wear life is over. You should determine the performance you want and the conditions affecting your carpet. A tighter twisted fiber won’t feel as soft but will generally perform better over time. A tightly twisted yarn will resist soiling, matting and crushing. When a yarn is not tightly twisted, it may feel more luxurious—but it will tend to crush and flatten more quickly.
