Just because carpet underlay is installed under your new carpet, doesn’t mean it won’t add value to your new carpet. Choosing the right carpet underlay is essential for adding comfort, reducing noise transmission, maintaining room temperatures as well as reducing carpet wear. All carpet underlays installed by the WA Carpet Supermarket are professionally installed to ensure not only comfort underfoot but the longevity of your new carpet
The main types of carpet underlay include:
Foam is the popular choice of carpet underlay for new homes. It comes in a variety of thicknesses, densities and qualities, meaning people can choose the option that best suits their budget while taking care of their new carpet. Foam underlay is made from 90% recyclable material and is 100% recyclable making it an environmentally friendly option.
A good carpet underlay needs to not only support your new carpet but also provide that soft luxurious feel underfoot that everyone desires. Rubber underlay does just that! Rubber is a long lasting natural resource so it will also assist in the longevity of your carpet. While rubber underlay is a more expensive option when compared to underlays like foam, it has great insulating properties so it will help reduce heating costs making it well worth the investment.
Most commonly used in older homes, it was a popular choice before other options like foam and rubber became available. A felt underlay is made up of a blend of a variety of fibres such as wool, jute and other textiles.
