With so much consideration going into carpet choice, it’s surprising that so many homeowners neglect the importance of choosing the right carpet underlay. However, the reality is that your underlay can be just as important as the carpet which covers it. Whether you are renovating your home or you are building a home from the ground up, there’s a good chance that you will give some serious thought and budgeting to which type of carpet you want to install. Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for the type of underlay which will be installed first.

What to Consider When Choosing the Best Underlay for Your Home

Pima Cleanpro, LLC knows just how important your carpet underlay is and has prepared some information below to help you to choose and budget for the best underlay for your home.

Will Your Carpet Outlast Your Underlay?

When it comes to choosing underlay, the budget you have to spend is often whatever you were able to save when you chose your installation. Almost a second thought. However, the reality of the situation is, if you choose a low-quality underlay then there is a good chance that your carpet will outlast the underlay, leaving you with the need to pull up your carpets entirely just to replace worn out underlay. For this reason, when it comes time to set a budget for your carpet, be sure that you include a sufficient amount for a high-quality underlay. While it may mean that you are slightly limited in your carpet choice, it also means that you won’t have to replace it any time soon.

Insulation

Many homeowners are surprised to learn that the underlay they choose can have a significant effect not only on the temperatures inside their home but also on their energy bills. The right underlay can act as a great insulator, helping to keep in the warmth during the colder months, helping your comfort level and also minimizing the need to use any electric heating appliances to help keep your home warm and comfortable. While you can’t expect your carpet underlay to replace your heating services completely, you can expect them to have a significant impact on the amount you need to use these services and, in turn, the amount you pay for your electric bill. If your carpets have seen better days, speak with the carpet cleaning experts at Pima Cleanpro, LLC by calling (520) 954-2119. Leaders in the field of carpet cleaning, make an appointment for Pima Cleanpro, LLC to visit your home and improve the quality of your carpets, without the use of harmful chemicals or potentially damaging cleaning techniques.

Noise Reduction

Let’s face it - nobody wants to hear what is happening in the rooms above them. Something as simple as walking on the carpet in heavy shoes can sound like a dance rehearsal is happening when heard from below. If you live in a two-storey home or you live in an apartment where you want to be mindful of your lower-neighbors, the underlay you choose can have a significant impact. Look for a thicker underlay which can act as a noise suppressor, helping to keep your ceiling as quiet as possible.

Furniture Indents

If you love to move furniture in your home often, whether it’s to entertain or you just like to keep your home looking fresh, the quality and type of underlay you choose can play a large role. A thicker underlay can help your carpet to bounce back after heavy furniture items have been placed and then moved, helping to reduce the number of furniture indents you and your guests see while walking through your home.

Comfort

Last, but certainly not least, is the comfort level. If you choose a hard or a low-quality underlay then you can expect to almost feel the floor as a solid slab as you walk. However, if you choose a softer underlay or a higher-quality underlay then walking over your carpets can almost feel as if you are walking on clouds. Okay, maybe not clouds, but you get the idea!
