When installing a new carpet, wood or laminate flooring in your home, office or rental property, use a base of underlay in order to maximise the life of your new flooring.
Underlay – what is this?
Underlay is a cushioned material which is laid under the floorcovering for the purposes of protection, sound reduction, density and underfoot comfort. Underlays absorb the wear and tear that frequent foot traffic causes. It prevents your carpeting from getting damaged as fast as it otherwise would and allows it to remain buoyant and soft for a more extended period of time. Underlays are the unsung heroes of the flooring universe.
Why do I need an Underlay?
- Absorbs foot noise
- Prolongs the life of new floorcoverings
- Smoothen out the imperfections in the flooring
- Keeps the floor warm
- Reduces flattening of the floors
What are the types of underlay?
Underlays can be made out of various materials, including foam, felt, recycled plastic, and a few different kinds of rubber. There are many different types of underlay with unique specifications to suit a range of flooring, for example flooring with underfloor-heating or thick, strong laminate underlay for impact reduction.
