How Hard is it to Remove a Carpet?


A lot of people are under the impression that removing old carpet is as simple as ripping it from the floor, but you’ll be surprised to know that while pulling up carpet can be an easy task, it’s also not a one-man job. 


Carpet removal is a monumental task. You may not see how much it takes on until you actually start applying yourself to the project, but once you get into the nitty-gritty of things and understand why removing old, worn-out carpets need so much work (yes we know it’s not just your average wear and tear), then getting rid of carpet shouldn’t be too tough, after all.


Is Carpet Removal Dangerous?


Just because someone says it’s easy to remove carpet doesn’t mean it’s as simple as you think. What’s more important is how careful you are with your tools and materials, and that is ultimately what will decide whether or not the job is actually safe. 


When you’re removing carpet from around a doorway, a staircase, or any other kind of opening, different factors may come into play. First and foremost is where the opening is located in relation to the other carpets in the room. 


If they’re spaced far apart and close to the wall, then you can remove them without having any trouble at all.


Will the Jiffy Junk Team of Carpet Removal Specialists Move Your Furniture?


Moving heavy furniture can be a bit of a hassle, but it’s usually completely necessary to get the job done right. In many cases, the carpet removal process won’t be replaced with new flooring unless you get our help.


That shouldn’t be a huge problem, though. After all, most people don’t use their carpet as their primary flooring anymore and would probably go for something more modern and more affordable like laminate or vinyl if they had to do it all over again. 


In fact, we might not even have to move your furniture if you want us to remove that old carpet that’s covering it. Most of the rooms we come across are small, and without any furniture around too.


Should You Start a Carpet Removal by Yourself?


If you’re the kind of person who prefers to remove carpet by yourself, then you’ll find that it’s perfectly possible to do so. However, a few things need to be considered before initiating the process and sending our team of carpet removal specialists in. 


First and foremost are the tools and materials you need for the job. If you’re planning on removing some old carpeting from around a doorway or other opening in your home, then you’ll first need to make sure that the tools will work for that particular job. 


Also, if there’s anything too heavy for your equipment to handle on its own, then we may have to come in and help with lifting it as well.



If You Choose the D.I.Y. Route, Proceed With Caution


Of course, you must always remember, Safety First.

That’s why we always tell our customers to take precautions.


Requirements for Safe and Efficient Carpet Removal


No matter what, proper carpet removal is going to take time, energy, safety equipment, and the right tools to tackle the task. 


Here are some of the things you would need to get ahold of to safely remove carpet:


1. Safety Goggles:


Even when dealing with the simplest of jobs, the easiest thing you can do to save yourself from a headache and headache is to protect your eyes and vision.


Our professionals use two different kinds of goggles for their work in carpets, they use safety glasses for their everyday tasks that are commonly used in construction works. 


They also use Fiber Optic Goggles for nighttime carpet removal operations in areas that have no daylight. 


They also have fluorescent tape that is stuck above their eyes so they can work even in complete darkness.


2. Dust Mask:


Do not underestimate the importance of wearing a mask while you’re removing carpets. You may think that it’s okay to remove the carpet without wearing a mask as you’ll clean the mess up soon, but remember, if you do so, you won’t be able to breathe properly.


Wearing a dust mask can protect your lungs against all kinds of fumes and dirt which are commonly found in carpets. 


Do not use non-filter or cheap masks that are made out of rubber while working on carpets as they will only make your work difficult and will only fill your nose with more molds and germs. 


3. Gloves:


If you want to ensure that you’re completely safe while working on carpets, then make sure you wear gloves while doing so. 


Our professionals use two types of gloves while removing carpet, one is a Nitrile glove and the other is a knitted glove. 


They also use leather gloves to protect their hands from sharp edges or from any other injuries that might occur during their work.


 4. Safety Belt:


If you’re planning on removing the carpeting from your attic or high roof area then there’s a huge possibility that you’ll need some sort of safety belt or harness to keep yourself safe and secure.

Our professionals use many different kinds of machines for carpets removal, they also use a blower which is used to blow the air into the carpet, this will blow all of the dust particles off the carpet and onto a fan which will then help to clean it properly. 


2. Sweepers:


A sweeper is essentially a device that is used for cleaning up any dirt particles that are found in carpets whether it is from the streets or your house.

Our professionals use these sweepers to remove any bits of dirt from the carpeting while they are removing it. 


3. Vacuum Cleaners:


When you are removing carpets you will need a vacuum cleaner to suck up all of the dust particles that are on them. 


Once all of the dust is vacuumed up, then our professionals will then use a powerful hose and dry it out properly to prevent mildew or any damage to the carpet at all.
