Removing Carpet From The Subfloor
One of the most difficult components of carpet replacement is the removal process, which requires special tools and manpower. Most installation companies utilize tack strips to attach the carpet to a subfloor. The tack strips are placed along walls, where this minimal foot traffic.
To remove the carpet, each tack strip must be removed piece by piece. To safely remove tack strips, we suggest utilizing a flathead screwdriver, hammer, pry bar, and pliers. Start in the upper corner, grab the edge of the carpet, utilizing a pair of pliers. Pull the carpet towards you until it breaks free from the tack strip.
We suggest cutting the carpet into pieces for easier removal and disposal.
Removing Carpet Glued Down The A Subfloor
Another installation method for wall-to-wall carpeting entails the use of adhesive (glue). It is questionable why installation services opt to utilize adhesive to attach the carpet to the subfloor. Carpet has an average lifespan of 5 years, which can be extended to 8 with routine shampooing, vacuuming, and sterilizing. Industrial-grade adhesive works wonders in keeping the carpet attached to the subfloor. However, it can complicate the carpet removal process.
To remove carpet glued down to a subfloor, you will need a pair of pliers, a pry bar, box cutter, and a large scraper.
- Starting at the upper corner, grab the edge of the carpet, utilizing the pliers
- With a firm grip, jerk the carpet towards you or in your direction
- If the carpet has been thoroughly adhered to the floor, it may need to be pried or scraped
- Utilizing the pry bar, place the scraper edge underneath an edge of the carpet
- Push the scraper in the opposite direction of where you are standing
- When a medium-sized piece of carpet is free from the subfloor, cut into a square for easier disposal
- When the carpet is completely free from the subfloor, you will have a pile of remnants to dispose of later
Removing Excess Carpet Adhesive From Subflooring
To remove excess carpet glue, you will need a large scraper, scouring pads, boiling water, and an adhesive remover. Apply the boiling water to a small area of adhesive, wait at least 5 minutes, and scrape the glue away. If the adhesive refuses to break loose from the subfloor, utilize the adhesive remover. Scrap the adhesive off the subfloor, walls, and floorboards.
Detaching Carpet From Staircases
Working on an incline complicates the carpet removal process. So, use caution throughout the process. Start at the top of the stairs, pull a small- or medium-section away from the tack strips. Utilizing a pry bar, pry each tack strip away from the subfloor.
