When it comes to getting the perfect carpet, you’ll need to know the fundamentals of it.
Otherwise, you’ll never really know how long your carpet will last you in the first place.
The backing of a carpet is the underside which secures the tufts. There are two parts to carpet backing
as well: the primary backing and the secondary backing. The primary backing gives the structure for the
tufts while the latter provides stability between the carpet padding and the floor. While any carpet you
buy is most likely already going to have good backing, it’s better to be aware of your options.
If you’re one for luxury carpets, then you’ll want to make sure you have a backing of the same stature. If
you want the best office carpet backing, then you’ll want polyurethane. Polyurethane is a durable
backing. These backings are affordable and have an easy application to the back of any carpet.
Polyurethane also protects flooring from moisture. Airport carpet and other commercial carpet use
polyurethane carpet backing because of how affordable and durable it is.
If your business often deals with spills and threats from liquids, then you’ll want a moisture barrier
backing for your carpet. A moisture barrier backing will protect your carpet and the flooring underneath
it from liquid and staining by preventing it from seeping in. With a moisture barrier, your carpet can last
longer, while avoiding liquid threats.
There are plenty more carpet backings out there, but the above are relatively popular choices. If
