Many homeowners choose to have wall to wall carpeting in their homes because it provides a cozy and comfortable ambience. Over time, carpet can start to show signs of age and wear and lose it’s appeal. After carpet has existed in a home for a few years, dirt becomes trapped from heavy foot traffic, pets, stains, and dust. No matter how much vacuuming and steam cleaning you do, carpets eventually fade and need to be replaced. Ripping up carpet in your home can be an overwhelming and exhausting experience for someone without the right tools and guidance. It is highly suggested to consult a professional for help with removing the old carpet. If you decide to take a try at it yourself, please refer to our tips below for ripping up carpet in your home.
