The under lay or carpet padding will cushion and help to reduce the pressure on the carpet. The decrease in pressure will help make the carpet feel better thicker and softer as well as more spring. Think of walking on carpet that has been attached to concrete and then walking on home carpeting. Theres quite a difference in comfort! The under lay combined with the carpet will also act as a sound buffer making the room quieter and also warmer by holding the heat much better. The carpeting pad also help keep your carpets cleaner. The dirt that find its way into your carpet will work its way down to the fibers and act like sand paper on the floor and carpet and shorten its life.
Pile crushing will cause the carpet to look ugly and to start to sag or stretch. Pile crushing is caused when the crushed carpet is walked on all the time and in the same spot or area. So lets say from the kitchen to the sofa is a high traffic area. This is where you will see pile crushing. Hallways are another good example of were crushed pile will show up. A good carpet padding or under lay will help decrease the amount of pile crushing by allowing the carpet to maintain its pile height so it will stay looking newer longer. It has been proven that under lay will increase the useful life of a carpet by as much as 50%.
Of course one of the most important tips to remember about caring for your carpet is to vacuum it regularly. Carpets not only pick up the dirt from the number of passengers that walk over it but it also collects dust particles. Vacuuming your carpet sucks up the dirt from the carpet and also eliminates the bacteria and dirt that can stick in the textile of the carpet when left un-vacuumed for a long period. It is however important to note that vacuuming does not completely clean your carpet. The dust that collects in a carpet could cause serious diseases such as asthma and some vacuum cleaners send the dirt flying into the air only for the dust to re-settle back on and into the carpet once again; it is therefore important for one to set the vacuum to the correct pile setting so that the dirt absorption and deep cleaning is efficient. With vacuuming it is also critical to remember to change the filter and vacuum bag regularly.
Fiber carpet underlay is uses existing fibers of virgin and recycled man made or natural fibers which are woven into a sheet of felt. The natural felt is made from animal hair and jute. This is the oldest kind of under lay. The synthetic fibers include nylon polyester polypropylene and other acrylics. These are needle punched into relative dense cushions which have a firm feel. They can be made to be any weight and be made to stand up to any traffic flow. With Berber carpet gaining in popularity be sure that the under pad you choose is rated to be used with Berber carpet because not all carpet padding is suitable for this Berber carpet.
