Reasons To Get Rid of Your Carpet

There are many reasons why our customers choose to get rid of their old carpets. Some of the most common reasons why people choose to get rid of their carpets:

  • The customer is remodeling their property
  • The customer’s carpet is old and needs to be replaced
  • The customer is planning to install a different type of flooring (wood, tile, epoxy, etc.) or a different style of carpet.

Facts About Old Carpet

Old carpets can be more than just unsightly. Here are some fun facts about old carpet that you may want to consider when debating whether to get rid of your carpet:

  1. Old carpets can make allergy and asthma symptoms worse. Old carpets trap allergens and asthma triggers such as pollen, danger, and dust.
  2. Old carpets can trap tens of pounds of dirt and pollen!! Over the years, your carpets literally gain weight.
  3. Carpets are dirtier than a toilet seat, making them the single dirtiest spot in most homes! In fact, researchers have found that carpets can have over 900x as much of bacteria and fungus as the average toilet lid.

We Also Offer Carpet Removal Services

Over the years, we have perfected our carpet removal procedure as we have performed countless carpet removal services in Houston. We have identified what process and what tools are the best to remove the carpet safely and efficiently. The process varies slightly based on whether the carpet is held into place using tack-strips or glue. In either case, we can get rid of your carpet. The overall carpet removal process is as follows:

Our Carpet Removal Process

  1. Identify what areas should be removed
  2. Identify what type of flooring is underneath the carpet
  3. We cut the carpet into manageable pieces
  4. We pull up the carpet up. Then, we pull up the carpet pad.
  5. Next, we remove the tack-strips (if necessary).
  6. Then, we scrape up remaining nails and staples.
  7. If glue is present, we scrape that up.
  8. Next, we load the carpet into our truck
  9. Before we leave, we sweep up the area and leave it clean and tidy
  10. Finally, we haul the carpet to the proper disposal facility

Should I Get Rid of the Tack Strips

One of the questions we get most often is, “should the tack strips be removed after the carpet is removed, if I am installing new carpet?”. The short answer is it depends. The only time we recommend leaving the tack strips in place is if you plan on installing the new carpet soon (many carpet installers can re-use most of the old strips). However, if you plan to be doing more work in the room before re-installing carpet, it is recommended that we remove the tack strips for you.

Why You Should Hire a Professional to Remove Your Carpet

Though it may seem like carpet removal is an easy DIY task, it is often not as easy as it first appears. For starters, carpets, even when rolled up, take up far more space than you may think. Often time, carpets from just one or two rooms will take up far more space than a pickup truck can hold. Additionally, our team has all the tools necessary to quickly remove carpets as well as the tack strips.
