Hardwood Floor Underlayment

If you’ve ever lived in a condominium or apartment complex, you might have experienced a lot of frustration with your upstairs neighbor’s loud footsteps. If you think about it, each step involves you placing your entire body weight on a single point on the floor, which can lead to reverberation and impact noise. Hardwood floor underlayment is crucial to reduce harsh impact noise in close living quarters such as apartments, hotels, offices, and school buildings. Without quality underlayment, areas with heavy foot traffic might become a significant annoyance to anyone living or working on the floor below.

At SoundAway, we offer WhisperMat-HW acoustic underlay for wooden floors at affordable prices. If you struggle with impact noise in your space, then consider using a sound-deadening underlayment for hardwood floors. The WhisperMat-HW is designed for use with engineered wood planks, wood parquet, and laminate floors. It offers significant noise reduction and provides an airtight seal with its peel-and-stick installation method. Not only does this hardwood underlay protect from impact noise, but it also keeps out moisture and vapor emissions.

Minimize distracting impact noise and “neighbor noise,” with solid wood flooring underlays from SoundAway today! If you need some more information regarding our product selection, email us at [email protected] with your questions!
