Some carpet salespeople recommend a moisture barrier pad to every customer. Moisture barrier pads are generally more costly than a standard padding and may be suitable in some circumstances. However, I have found that in most situations homeowners are mislead into thinking a moisture barrier pad can do more than they are actually designed to do.
Some claim that a Moisture Barrier pad will prevent spills from soaking into the pad. What benefit does that provide? Do I need that?
