Why is choosing the right carpet underlay so important?



Underlay is essential for protecting your new carpet. Here’s why choosing the right underlay makes a big difference to your home (and to the environment)

Having the right underlay installed below your carpet helps in so many ways. The soft backing not only protects the carpet from wear and tear, it also reduces noise between floors and provides an extra layer of softness.

Why use Dunlop EnviroTred underlay?

Dunlop EnviroTred (exclusive to Flooring Xtra) offers an extremely high quality solution that is also 100 per cent recyclable. Made in Australia, purchasing Dunlop EnviroTred also helps to support the Australian economy. As well as being sustainably produced, Dunlop Flooring and Flooring Xtra are proud supporters of Planet Ark’s National Recycling Week and donate one dollar from every Envirotred roll sold.

Underlay that helps you breathe easier

Dust and other in-home pollutants can be a real issue for those who suffer allergies. As dust becomes airborne in the home, it can cause asthma and hay fever symptoms such as itchiness and irritability of the eyes and throat. While these allergens are difficult to remove completely, there are surface and material selections for your home which can minimise these issues.

The EnviroTred underlay is protected by Dunlop Fresh Living. A proven antimicrobial coating, Fresh Living protects against dust mites, bacteria, mould and mildew, all of which exacerbate asthma, hay fever and eczema. This means that choosing the right underlay will not only increase the longevity and comfort of your carpet, it will also help you breathe easier in your home.
