The higher the density of the under pad or padding the more you will extend the life of the carpet because it raises the carpet off the floor. This also provides an air space between the sub floor and the carpet which allows the carpet to breath. The air space also makes for much deeper vacuuming. When you vacuum the carpet the air space allows more air to be pulled up through the carpet carrying more dust and dirt along with it. The result is more effective each time you vacuum the carpets. This deeper cleaning leaves less dirt behind to cause abrasion and wear out your carpet so the carpet will last longer with carpet padding.
The froth polyurethane foam is made with the carpet. Liquid ingredients are applied on to the backs of the carpet. The foam is thin and dense and can be found on the back of commercial carpets You can get home carpets with the foam attached to the back. Draw backs are as the carpet gets older the foam breaks down in to a powder. Waffled rubber is molded natural or synthetic rubber and heat is used to cure it which forms the waffle pattern. It produces soft resilient cushioning which has a luxurious feel to it. The flat sponge rubber is a denser carpet cushion which has a flat surface and is used more in large scale commercial applications usually used in Berber carpet.
The knotted carpet that is also known as supplementary weft cut-loop pile a very popular example of a knot in the old days called the shag is the best example that has been used in the 1970s. The shag is forming a "pile "or "nap" of the carpet. Structural wefts and supplementary wefts are alternately threaded to form exactly 90 degrees with respect to the surface of the weave. Oriental rugs such as the Kashmir are knotted by hand. A tufted carpet has "pile" injected to the backing material. Then the backing is attached to another backing for a stronger base. There are many other ways to produce carpets but these processes are not so reliable or the results have more disadvantages than the positive outcome of the finished product.
Another installation related issue creating havoc with installations is lack of adhesive being used to hold the carpet to the substrate. If there is one place where corners can be cut its by cutting back on the amount of adhesive used to hold down the carpet. You can double the "savings" if the carpet is a double-gluedown installation. This type of installation is when the carpet is affixed to the underpad and the underpad is affixed to the concrete. There are charts that clearly outline what kind of trowel to use to apply the adhesive on different styles of carpet backings. Unfortunately its rare that installers to abide by this chart. The rule of thumb for a properly affixed carpet is that it would be extremely difficult to peel back a carpet and if you could that there would be legs in the adhesive. Legs in the adhesive means that the where the glue separates from the concrete there are strings of adhesive between the floor and the carpet backing.
