The primary function of carpet cushion (also referred to as carpet pad or padding) is to absorb the impact that carpet is subjected to on a daily basis. A quality cushion underneath wall-to-wall carpet protects it from the pounding of foot traffic that can cause undue stress on the face of the carpet fiber. So how exactly does this work? Essentially, when we walk on carpet, the carpet’s nap initially flattens. A quality carpet cushion absorbs this force and bounces back, pushing the carpet’s nap back up. With a low-quality carpet cushion, or no cushion at all, the same force will cause carpet fibers to quickly break down, thus appearing worn and flat.
A big misconception about carpet cushion is that if you select a high-quality, dense carpet, you can cut costs by selecting a low-quality pad. It’s quite the opposite. The wrong carpet cushion can actually cut the life of your carpet in half, which will end up costing more money when you consider the price of replacing carpet sooner than expected. In fact, a high-quality carpet cushion can actually add more wear life and a more luxurious feel to a moderately priced carpet. So while a good carpet cushion may cost a little more initially, it can prove to be a very good investment in the long run.

Mohawk SmartCushion has partnered with Susan G. Komen for the Cure™ to help fund ongoing breast cancer research. Find out what you can do to take part in Decorate for the Cure and help work toward the vision of a cancer-free world.
To help in our support of this mission, Custom Home Interiors buys Komen Cushion by the truck load and stocks this premium cushion year round.
Mohawk Flooring has expanded its support of the 2016 Susan G. Komen 3-Day, placing more than 6,000 pieces of SmartCushion™ under the sleeping bags of walkers and crew members in cities across the country. In this three-day event held in seven cities, walkers cover 60 miles to accomplish one mission: a world without breast cancer.
Mohawk retailers across the country have long been committed to the fight against cancer. Since 2001, Mohawk retailers have raised millions of dollars through Mohawk’s Decorate for the Cure®/Specify for the Cure® programs, in which Mohawk donates proceeds per square yard of SmartCushion and KaraStep™ carpet cushion sold—to Komen.
Watch this video that highlights Mohawk’s commitment to Komen and to hear Mohawk Flooring President Brian Carson’s personal experience with breast cancer and why he encourages Mohawk retailers to continue to Cushion the Fight in their local communities.
