How to Remove Carpet
The first step to new flooring often starts with removing carpet. If it is time to replace your old carpet in your home or business with new carpet or hardwood floors, you must first pull up and then haul away your existing flooring. When looking for guidance on how to remove carpet or how to dispose of rugs, following the steps below will ensure it is as successful of a process as possible.
Carpet removal is quickest and easiest if you equip yourself with these tools and gear: work gloves, dust mask, protective eyewear, knee pads and/or stool, heavy-duty trash bags, carpet cutter, utility knife, pliers, pry bar, hammer, screwdriver, staple remover (industrial strength), vacuum, tack puller, chisel, twine, string, or cord.
Carpet is nailed down to the floor during installation by tack strips, typically placed around the perimeter. With protective gloves on, begin by pulling out each individual nail and stapling it. Use a pry bar, utility knife, or staple remover and go slowly to avoid damaging your floor. Once the carpet tacks are removed, the next step is preparing to pull it back in a way that makes it possible to transport, as carpet can be very difficult to move due to its bulkiness.
Begin rolling the carpet into a single, tight bundle, tied closed to prevent unravelling with cord, twine, or string. You can also get started by folding the entire piece in half and then begin pulling up carpet with the natural curve created by the fold in the center.
Utilize packing tape, sturdy string or plastic wrap to secure the roll tightly to ensure it will not start to unravel during transit. Unsure of what to do with the carpet when you’re done? Consider carpet recycling, donation, or dropping it off to be disposed of together.
How to Rip Carpet
Depending on the size of the room and quantity of carpet, sometimes it’s just not possible to transport a large and heavy roll of carpet by yourself during the carpet removal and disposal process. In this case you will have to do a few extra steps in order to break down the carpet into small, manageable pieces.
Pick a corner to begin in a location of the room that will allow you to easily roll the carpet back in the most convenient way for disposal, as well as leave you the space to dispose of scraps in the process.
Begin to pull up the carpet by hand from the corner you selected. If not easily removable by hand, take one of your tools and use a pair of pliers to gain leverage from underneath, loosening up the edges to help get you started. If the carpet is glued down, it will likely be too difficult to pull by hand, and you will need one of your tools.
Once you have a decent-sized section of the carpet pulled back in the room, fold the carpet over and use a utility knife to ripping up carpet into small, manageable squares.
Whether you are donating, recycling, repurposing, or throwing away your carpet, the process of hauling it away is back-breaking work and usually NOT worth trying to pull off on your own. The good news is you don’t have to – Jiffy Junk can handle it for you. Just place your old carpet in an unused room for safety, and we will come to quickly haul it away and do the rest.
