Basement Carpet

First and foremost, when it comes to padding a basement floor you want to take two things into consideration. Consider the irregularities in the concrete and moisture issues. It is a good idea to spend a little extra money on the thickest carpet pad you can get. This will help smooth out the level differences in the concrete, especially around the walls and jack posts.

As far as moisture issues are related, it is suggested that you use padding that has an anti-microbial built into it to keep mold or mildew from growing. Keep in mind, choosing a carpet without an attached under padding is recommended because separate rubber based under padding will resist humidity more efficiently. Also, installing a dehumidifier will help to create a dry, airy environment.

When it comes to the actual carpeting, you may want to consider carpeting with a resistance to moisture and mildew, such as nylon and olefin fibers. Nylon offers excellent durability and is wear, soil and mildew resistant. Olefin fibers are resistant to moisture and mildew, easy to clean, durable, and resistant to stains, wear and static electricity.
