Do Scales Work On Carpet Properly? Find Out Now

Yes, scale does work on carpet.

But does it work properly on carpets?

A scale may not work correctly when you put it on a carpeted floor and weigh yourself, because the scale sinks into the carpet and the carpet pressures your weight towards you. This can distort your readings on the scale, making it appear as if you have lost weight when in fact you have not. 

Some people claim that the analog scale works fine on carpets and some people face issues using the digital scale on carpeted floors.

What type of scales are better for use on carpets: digital or Analog scales?

There is no definitive answer to this question as it depends on the type of carpets that you are using at your home and your personal preferences.   

Digital scales are typically preferred for use, because they are more accurate and easier to read. Analog scales tend to be cheaper, but some people find that they work better because the weight reacts more naturally to the pressure of the carpet.

The digital scale should work fine as long as it is placed on a hard, flat surface. Carpeted floors can cause the scale to sink into the carpet and give inaccurate readings. If you have any concerns about using a digital scale on your carpeted floor, then an analog one may be a better option for you.

So next time weighing yourself on a bathroom scale, either use a hard, flat surface or if using a digital scale, make sure it is placed on something that won’t sink into the carpet, to get accurate reading.

Plus, if you are concerned about the accuracy of your scale, why not use a professional weight loss clinic to measure your weight? They will have calibrated scales that won’t be affected by the carpet.
