We always recommend that underlay should be laid or replaced when fitting new carpet or flooring. New underlay has a number of benefits:
- Better feel - underlay provides the cushioning that makes your carpet feel comfortable and luxurious underfoot.
- Better look - underlay protects the carpet and keeps it looking new for its expected lifetime. Quality underlay will help to prevent the pile from flattening and enables the carpet to retain its appearance for longer.
- Longevity - underlay acts like a “shock absorber”, enabling it to sit properly and stand up to wear and tear, and helping it last longer.
