Benefits of Fitting Carpets Underlay-
Carpet underlay is the layer commonly fitted between the floor board or concrete floor and the actual carpet. Carpet underlay is beneficial to improve the softness and comfort of your chosen carpet or flooring. Carpet underlay is recommended if you want bouncy and soft carpets as they create extra cushioning and may also help keep dust at bay.
Carpet underlay is sometimes seen as a sound proofing layer as they keep noises to a minimum especially if the floor boards are creaky or have many heavy footed family members. There are many different types of carpet underlay which serves different purposes and may depend on the property type or type of carpet required. Carpet underlay ranges from cloud underlay of various thickness and is suitable for all areas, heat flow carpet underlay which is suitable for floors with underfloor heating, rubber carpet underlay, felt carpet underlay which is usually made from sustainable natural products and other flooring materials that have good insulation properties, graphite carpet underlay which is made of a thin layer of foam and is and one of the most economical and value for money options and perfect for areas where you can cut costs without compromising on comfort.
Naturally, the thicker the carpet underlay, the more luxurious your carpets will feel providing more comfort and insulation throughout your home. For laminate or wooden floors, a different type of underlay is required which tend to be at least half the thickness as carpet underlay but will still provide the desired sound and heat insulation properties. Other benefits of carpet underlay include carpet protection as it gives your carpet support and prevents the carpet pile from flattening, ensuring it will keep your carpet looking new for longer, provides cushioning between the carpet and the hard floor below, carpet underlay makes the carpets easier to clean and hygienic prevent dust and dirt from getting into the carpet fibres.
