There are various high quality carpet underlay manufacturers to be found here and one of the best is known as cloud 9 underlay.
Cloud 9 is an expression that has many popular meanings but mostly it conveys the very best quality. The origins of the expression are not very clear and there are various interpretations with some believing it refers to the ninth state of goodness in the Buddhist faith where ten is the final moment one enters heaven.
On the other hand it also may refer to the height levels of those big white and fluffy cumulous clouds on an otherwise bright blue sky where 9 is the absolute peak of the cloud usually over thirty thousand feet.
There are even further interpretations of the origin but you will have got the drift that cloud 9 means excellence and even euphoria.
The same can be said with the cloud 9 range of underlay which can be bought here at greatly discounted prices because you are paying the wholesale price and not retail.
When changing your carpets it is essential that the old underlayis also removed and thrown away. No matter how tempted you may be to keep it the fact is it will almost certainly have lost its spring and will undoubtedly be damaged by spillage through the old carpet.
Once the old underlay is thrown out the floor should be checked and cleaned before the new one is laid.
If the floor is comprised of wooden floorboards then this is a perfect moment to carefully prise up a couple and check with a torch and a handheld mirror the state of things below these boards throughout the room.
If there is old electrical wiring there then it may be the right time to replace it with new. In fact, if a property is being prepared for letting then there is a legal obligation to replace old wiring.
Once the boards are replaced and a walkabout reveals no uneven or creaking boards the time has come to give the floor a thorough vacuum clean to pick up any little dust mites.
It is often advisable to line the floor with paper before laying the new underlay and this paper is also available in rolls from here.
There is an easy to use tool online to help you work out the exact amount of underlay you will need for the room and this is handy with awkwardly shaped rooms with alcoves and fireplaces and so on.
With the known area in square metres do remember that it is still cheaper to order complete rolls. This may mean there is a little left over but it generally still works out cheaper than the cost of having it cut to measure before despatch.
There are a number of different thicknesses and types of underlay within the cloud 9 range products so take a look at the descriptions to suit your particular needs and if in doubt there are always staff on hand to answer any queries.
