Do I need to replace the underlay every time I get new carpet?

We recommend that every time you get a new carpet you replace your underlay. This is because new underlay cannot only increase the life of your carpet by 40%, but it also ensures the carpet sits properly and wears evenly.

Other benefits of having underlay and replacing it are: it improves the feel underfoot and reduce pile compression. It insulates against noise and heat loss and helps stop grit and dust being trapped in the carpet.
