The term underlay refers to a layer of insulation or cushioning that is very often placed underneath a carpet or a rug. This is made from a variety of materials like foam, rubberized materials, sponge and felt among others. This allows expensive carpets to get a cushioning from the floor thus getting protection from moisture and excess heat or cold. In similar way for someone who stands on these carpets feel a heavier and thicker cushioning as a result of this. Carpet Underlay is commonly done with foam or crumb rubber surfaces. These are usually given a thickness of 10 mm and are excellent protection for the carpets as well as a feel of cushion under the feet.

There are notions that carpet underlay is usually an expensive idea and quite unnecessary. It may be noted here that this is actually an added protection for the expensive Persian or Kashmir carpets that you may have procured. And compared to the prices of these there is an insignificant amount asked for the job of Underlay. If you are quoted a high price for the same, then refer to few more service providers and get a competitive quote for the job. This prevents premature wearing out of carpets and helps them to absorb the pressures of excessive foot traffic in premises like business centers and offices.

Underlay is also used for wooden flooring; there is insulation created between the wooden laminates and the floor surface. This is done with layers of plastic foam and other materials usable in this case. The usual thickness applied is 3 mm. It acts as a sound insulation. There are several dealers of carpet underlay who provide durable and lasting services along with cost-effective prices. You have to ensure that you select a dealer who has expertise and the right kind of tools to deliver you appropriate services at the right price. It will be the best thing for your expensive floor covers.
