Laminate floor and underlay
 
I'm going to replace a carpeted area with laminate floor. I just pulled up the carpet and left the underlay. Is it possible to reuse the carpet underlay for the laminate flooring? Or will I need to change the underlay and get the laminate floor underlay?

The underlay is not that thick (maybe around 3-4mm I'm guessing) and it is relatively clean.

Just looking for a second opinion.

Not the same density, the floor will flex to much and loosen up the seams.
If you buy better laminite it will have the padding built in.
