Underlay is so important when you fit a new carpet for a few reasons:

  • Protects and prolongs the life of your carpet
  • Dramatically reduces airborne noise from above or below
  • Helps with insulation by acting as a barrier and stopping heat from escaping
  • Makes a carpet much more comfortable
  • Helps prevent and marks or damage on the floor by heavier furniture
