Buy high quality under pad for residential carpet and area rugs. We sell all brand of carpet and rug pads for less. Some people will buy expensive carpets like Berber carpet and sisal carpet, wool and natural fiber carpet and rugs but then skimp on the under pad. After all, you can't see it so why does it matter? Well, it matters a lot!
Types of Under Pad
As with carpet, under pad should be chosen to suit its application - where it will be installed and what wear and tear it will endure. Your Rug Stars consultant can advise you on the best under pad for your requirements. There are different types of under pads are available.
Felt Under Pad
Foam Under Pad
There are various qualities of foam under pads are available. The more expensive ones will improve the feel and extend the life of your carpet, whereas the cheaper foam carpet underlay will provide minimal protection for your carpet. These forms of under pad are also environmentally friendly, as they are made from recycled materials.
Under Pad Tips
Carpets with built in under pads are usually a poor substitute for the combination of a good carpet and good under pad.
If you have in-floor heating, you need to take this into account when choosing your under pad (as well as your carpet). For the best advice, ask your Rug Stars consultant.
Never lay a good quality carpet on a worn under pad. Your new carpet will not feel anywhere near as good as it should underfoot. And the few dollars you save will be a short-term saving, as your expensive new carpet will wear far more quickly.
Try a range of under pad types before buying. Combine your preferred carpet with various under pads to find the feel that's right for you.
