Frequently Asked Questions
Our carpet experts highly recommend replacing your current underlay before laying your new carpet.
Firstly, whilst your existing carpet underlay may seem in good condition, it will likely have lost its cushioning due to years of wear.
This is highly problematic as it can lead to your carpet pile flattening prematurely, which reduces your carpet’s cushioning and causes it to look worn.
Differently, brand-new underlay will keep your carpet looking in fantastic condition by absorbing shock and allowing it to keep its spring.

A significant benefit of carpet underlay is its ability to reduce noise in your home or business – it provides noise-reduction cushioning between your visible and subfloors.
It works by absorbing impacts and the sounds in your room, such as dog barks and footsteps – something your neighbours will be happy about!
Some carpet underlays are designed specifically for absorbing sound, with porous materials like foam or sponge underlays working the best. We recommend our Super Velvet Wool & Crumb Carpet Underlay – its 12mm thickness helps to lower impact noise, whilst its density helps to reduce acoustic and airborne noise in your home.

If you want your carpet to stay in fantastic condition for many years, you must install underlay underneath it. So, how can carpet underlay benefit your carpet and increase its lifespan?
- Carpet underlay adds comfort underfoot
Some subflooring, especially concrete, isn’t the most comfortable to walk on – a carpet underlay adds an extra layer of cushioning to make walking across your carpet more pleasant.
- Underlay shields your carpet from moisture
Concrete subfloors can often become damp, which can destroy your carpet fibres and cause them to smell. An effective carpet underlay will act as a barrier between the moisture from your subfloor and your new carpet, keeping it healthy for longer.
- Reduces noise in your home
Carpet underlay is ideal for absorbing impacts and acoustic sounds such as dog barks, falling objects, voices, and footsteps – this will help to keep your neighbours and family members happy as your home won’t be as noisy.
- Protects the underside of your carpet
As well as shielding your carpet from moisture, underlay will protect your carpet’s underside from friction against your subfloor. Frequent rubbing against a cold hard surface could cause the carpet to wear and lose its cushioning and stunning appearance.
So, to ensure you get the best out of your new carpet, we advise you to install carpet underlay first.
Although both protect your flooring and increase its lifespan, laminate and carpet underlays aren’t the same.
Underlays for carpets are thicker (usually around 8mm to 10mm) to provide more cushioning underfoot and effectively shield carpets from moisture. This thickness isn’t suitable for laminate floors as it can damage laminate flooring locking mechanisms.
Differently, laminate underlay typically ranges between 1mm to 3mm in thickness and is specifically designed for laminate flooring. So, it won’t effectively protect carpets as it isn’t thick enough to cushion the carpet’s underside.
