The thickness of your padding is important because if your padding isn’t the correct thickness it can cause the backing of your carpet to break and deteriorate at an exponential rate. That doesn’t mean to go out and get the thickest padding you can. Each carpet will have a preferred padding thickness depending on the type of pile it is.
