Removing Carpeting - Prepping for Hardwood

Blog entry by Mark posted 01-21-2013 05:00 AM 3696 reads 0 times favorited 2 comments Add to Favorites Watch

Attached is a video I shot this weekend while tearing out carpeting as part of my ongoing dining room renovation – essentially to make way for the hardwood floor I’ll be installing in the coming month or so. I tried to turn this into a tutorial video in case you haven’t done this before: I remember the first time I did this, the carpet was huge/cumbersome and truly (disgustingly) filthy! That was an eye-opener…

So, I’ve come to remove carpet in small, neat pieces as I show below.

Hope some of you find it helpful!

I already knew about having to start carpet removal efforts from the corner, but I’ve always been a little bit trigger happy just ripping everything up once the corner has come out. Seeind you cut the bits up has made me realise that it’s an interesting way of getting the removal of the carpet done and quite neat as well actually. Makes it easy to wrap the bits up and moving them aside to work on another swatch.
