A rug's long-term performance can be measured by noting its turn per inch number. The higher the TPI number, the better the rug. The fibers are twisted around each other 4 times if the TPI is 4. Fibers usually have a TPI from 3.5 to 6.0. This number will be noted on cut-pile carpeting.
Padding provides structure and support, and without it, carpeting will degrade over time. A 7/16-inch thickness is appropriate for most carpets, but some Berber or short cut pile brands may need thinner padding. A rebond pad with an 8+ pound weight is often the best choice. Be sure to review the warranty, which may provide specific requirements for the padding.
