Firstly, you need to address your moisture problems and then select an excellent quality underlay designed to support your carpet and appropriately meet your needs and goals.
The Different Types of Carpet Underlay
Carpet underlay is one of the most important but overlooked aspects of your wall-to-wall carpeting. While taken into consideration far less than the carpet itself, choosing the right carpet padding will drastically affect the lifespan of your carpet. The underlay absorbs the damage of heavy foot traffic, as a result, protects the underside of your rug from abrasion against the subfloor. Also, it helps to insulate your home against cold and noise and makes your carpet feel softer and more vibrant. However, there are quite a few different carpet padding types, and you must choose the right underlay for your rug. Common materials used include rubber, urethane, felt, and memory foam and various combinations.
