Don’t forget to spend some time thinking about the right underlay for your needs. This article has some great information which can help.

When it comes to reflooring a house, homeowners often spend 99% of their time choosing the right carpet, enabling a very small amount of time left to think about their underlay, often choosing the cheapest option or the one their builder suggested. If you are thinking of re-carpeting your floor and the above sentiment is familiar, Charlotte Cleanpro has a great post to share to help you choose the right underlay for you.

A Realistic Budget

There is no denying that renovations and re-carpeting your home can be an expensive experience, however, it’s important that whatever budget you do have is apportioned well. Instead of choosing your carpet first and then just taking whatever underlay comes in under-budget, think about your considerations and what you really want and need from an underlay, and then factor the reasonable cost into your total budget. Once you have both these items considered you can then adjust the ratio as you begin to search for the right carpet and underlay combination. When doing this, keep in mind that your underlay may end up costing more than you originally expected, however, it can come with many of the benefits listed below.

Temperature Regulation

You will be surprised at just how much the right underlay can help regulate the temperature in your home, which extends to reducing your energy bill through the seasons. This includes keeping your home warm during the cold months and cool during the hot. When considering this factor during your decision making, it’s important to remember two points:
  • You can’t expect your underlay to replace your air conditioner or central heating system. However, you can expect it to help keep the climate in your home comfortable.
  • The technology behind these types of underlay can differ and it is often a pay-for-what-you-get affair.
If you can’t remember the last time that your carpets were professionally cleaned, consider now the perfect opportunity.

A Quieter Home

It’s fair to say that nobody wants to hear people walking overhead or moving chairs and tables all day and night, however, without the right underlay, this could exactly what you will be hearing. If you have a multi-story home or if you are mindful of your apartment-below neighbors, looking for an underlay which includes serious noise reduction technology can be the difference between a constant headache and peaceful home and neighbor.

Indents in Your Furniture

Moving your furniture often is not only a great way to help all of your carpet age at the same pace, but it’s also a great way to bring new life into your home. However, this revitalizing task can often be hindered when furniture indents. Choosing a thicker underlay is a great way to prevent this from occurring in your home and has the tendency to bounce-back once the furniture has been moved. Of course, this isn’t to say that you can leave your furniture for 10 years and expect it to look as new, but it does mean that you have more flexibility with your furniture placement throughout the lifespan of your home and your carpet and underlay combination.

Last, but Certainly Not Least

Potentially the most important of all is the comfort level, and this can be an area which can save on your actual carpet budget. If you are looking for a super-comfortable carpet then you will likely find that they are at the higher end of the price scale, however, if you spend a little more on your underlay and choose an extra comfortable one then it can allow you more choice with your carpet, not restricting yourself to budgets or comfort levels. Again, when choosing an underlay based on comfort, it’s important to again remember that while you don’t have to spend all of your budget on underlay, extra comfort will require spending more on your underlay than you may have originally expected.
