wolfci said: ? 1. Pad: What pad do you recommend for this application? I have read that it?s a good idea to have breathability in a basement to avoid mold or mildew. So no rubber or closed-cell foam or pet shields, leaving a quality rebond as the best choice. Do you agree or disagree and whyClick to expand... Where do you live? Is it arid or humid? That's a pretty safe rule, a good 8lb rebond should suit you well for durability of both pad and carpet, but if you live somewhere like Arizona or Colorado, moisture shouldn't be a huge issue - unless you have pre-existing issues with your slab. wolfci said: ? 2. Carpet, polyester, perhaps Triexta, vs. nylonClick to expand... I would avoid polyester due to its affinity for oily stains. Smartstrand/Triexta would be OK, but it has a tendency to lay down and/or unravel at the twist, and high-traffic damage, in my experience, shows up faster with Smartstrand carpets. I would personally look at a solution-dyed nylon frieze or cut & loop, preferably something with a bit of 'flecking to it, so that it will hide minor stains like coffee/soda drops, etc. Ultimately, you can bet that your renters will never take care of the carpet as well as you would, so comfort should be your last consideration and durability your first.
Thanks Very helpful. Does everyone else agree? Anne
You may wish to look into a fiber pad. It will keep your feet up off the cold concrete in winter. And it will help the carpet to last longer.
