To avoid one of many estate home clean out mistakes or when selling a house, you'll probably have to do carpet removal. It's not a particularly pleasant job and it takes time and effort. What's more, you need to do it right or you'll be faced with more work. While the process isn't complicated or complex, there are things that need to be done right. So, you must avoid carpet removal mistakes so you don't unwittingly create whole other mess to clean up.
Whether you're doing remodeling prep, rehabilitating a property, or just replacing carpet with another type of flooring, you should know what to expect. Carpet is the most porous type of flooring and because of its material composition, that means you're probably in for one or more unpleasant surprises. A common phenomenon is the decomposition of the padding underneath. Although designed to provide many years of function, constant traffic takes a heavy toll.
Pulling up carpet is a relatively easy task although when rolled up a carpet can be very heavy, bulky and difficult to move. If there's no need to save the carpet it is easier to cut the carpet into smaller sections with a utility knife and move the sections out one at a time. It's usually easier to cut carpet from the back so when cutting it into small sections, fold a section over revealing the back then slice through the woven backing with a utility or carpet knife. --DIY Network
The padding thins and eventually, begins to break apart, leaving debris scattered under the carpet. It also can bugle, causing an uneven floor, making unusable. Another thing you'll likely encounter is what's known as "pet damage." Remember all those messes you've supposedly cleaned up over the years? Well, those will be waiting for you in the subfloor. Because carpet is porous, pet waste, as well as spills, will go right through the material and soak into the subfloor. Now, here are the biggest carpet removal mistakes to avoid:
