What is the purpose of carpet underlay?
Carpet underlay is one of those purchases that is usually just “added” to the carpet and based on price rather than knowing exactly what it can do for you, it has some great properties.
Although it may seem a waste of time and money if you don’t even see it, the underlay is just as important as the carpet itself and carpet fitting should never be carried out without an underlay and carpet gripper first – with the one extremely rare exception that your carpet has an underlay already built in,such as a “felt backed” carpet but you can still put carpet underlay down first.
We have all been in that house and felt how lovely the carpet was,super luxury underfoot but why?
Underlay,underlay and underlay,getting the right underlay and you too can have that luxury feel no matter what carpet you put on it.
Carpet Underlay ultimately offers protection against the inevitable wear and tear that comes with kids running,people walking and pets doing what they do best.
Underlay can help reduce significant heat loss, combined with the carpet,the right underlay and carpet can be as insulating as a duvet on your bed!Therefore keeping your energy bills to a minimum and keeping the room warmer.
Depending on how thick the carpet underlay is depends on the amount of noise reduction it will give. However, any underlay should help to reduce the noise of heavy footsteps or movement of furniture to some extent.
Heavy furniture can sometimes leave lasting marks on soft carpets, but with an underlay the chances of indentation marks are minimized, helping extend the life of your carpet even further,especially if you go for a crumb rubber underlay such as Tredaire Teadmore carpet underlay.

Underlays that reduce impact sound
Peace and quiet is essential. That’s why it is often desirable to reduce impact sound, especially when the noise of footfall from upstairs rooms is causing an interruption to your home environment. If you live in a first or second floor flat, you may also wish to lower your impact sound, as this can make a real difference to the quality of life of those living below you.
An easy way to reduce impact sound is by choosing a good quality underlay. Whether you have carpeted or hard wood floors, the right underlay can make a big difference.
When it comes to your carpets, underlay can help to reduce impact sound, thanks to two factors. The first is the sponginess of the underlay. The second is the thickness of the underlay. The spongier and thicker your underlay is, the more effective it will be at muffling footfall noises.
Conveniently, these factors also add up to a more comfortable underlay. Therefore, the best underlays for reducing impact sound will also be the ones that provide the best comfort.
