What are the Steps to Removing Carpet?

Preparing for your carpet removal project is a big part of successfully removing old carpet. Following are some steps you can follow to help the carpet removal process be a smooth one:

  • Gather Equipment: There are several tools and pieces of equipment that you are going to need to remove your carpet successfully. Make sure that you are wearing the appropriate clothing and personal protection equipment to do this safely. You will also need tools like a utility knife, pliers, pry bar, floor scraper, duct tape and a broom.
  • Detach Carpet from Tack Strips: The next step of the process is to detach the carpet from the tack strips that are found around the outside of the room. Once you are able to pry up the corner of the carpet, you can use a pair of pliers to help you pull up the rest.
  • Cut Carpet into Manageable Strips: Removing all of the carpet in your room in one fell swoop is not realistic. It makes more sense to cut the carpet into more manageable pieces using your utility knife. Once you have cut the carpet into strips, you can roll them up and wrap them in duct tape to make them easier to transport to your dumpster.
  • Remove Carpet Padding: Once you have gotten all of the carpet out of the house, you will see that there is a carpet pad beneath it. It is now time to get rid of the carpet padding in the same way. Cut it into smaller strips and then roll it up and wrap it in duct tape for disposal.
  • Remove the Tack Strips: Now that all of the carpet and padding is removed, you can focus on the tack strips around the outside of the room. Wearing gloves while you do this step is advised as the tack strips have sharp nails sticking up out of them. Use your pry bar to pop these away from your subfloor.
  • Remove the Staples: You will also see that there are thousands of staples in the subfloor. Using your floor scraper, you will be able to scrape these away from the subfloor quite easily. Once you have scraped them out of the subfloor, you will want to sweep them up and throw them away.
