Over the years, normal life can cause your carpet to look dirty and old, particularly if you have a large family, young children or pets in the house. Stains and dirt can be removed, but over time, this can leave the carpet looking uneven and discolored. Not to mention, there can be lots of dust and dirt caught deep between the carpet fibers that is hard to get rid of no matter how often you clean. Removing carpeting from your living room, bedrooms or rec room and replacing it with a brand new floor can help change the look, function and feeling of a room. Installing wood or tile floors can make the room easier to keep clean and free from stains for decades, no matter how much living you do in the house. Some of the other advantages of getting rid of carpet include:
- Modernize the style and décor of an older home
- Get rid of any lingering stains or smells in the home
- increase the potential for resale of your home for the future by appealing to more buyers, and possibly get a higher price
- Reduce the presence of dust, pet dander and allergens trapped in the carpet, which can enter the air and affect your family’s health
The first step to making any of these improvements to your home is getting that old carpet removed without disrupting your day to day life too much. This removal process can be much faster and simpler than you realize, with the help of Flooring Removal Services. Our crews have a wide range of equipment made for this purpose, and decades of experience in operating it.

Why Hire a Flooring Removal Company to Get Rid of Tack Down Carpet?

Hiring an expert service can help you get this process done quickly, with little to no pressure put on you.

Licensed and insured, our crews are prepared to handle any flooring removal job, no matter the square footage.
Improve the Air Quality in Your Home
If you’re concerned about keeping your family healthy, eliminating carpet from your home is a good first step to encouraging better respiratory health. This will reduce the presence of allergens that can recirculate through your home’s heating or air conditioning system. These pollutants can be very hard to trap and remove from the home once they are already in the air, so reducing their presence in home’s textures can be an effective way to improve air quality and reduce respiratory issues, such as:
- Respiratory infections
At Flooring Removal Services, we use an eco-friendly process that also keeps your family safe and healthy. By eliminating the need for chemicals or solvents in our flooring removal process, we keep your home free of smelly fumes. We also prevent dust from our work from entering the indoor air by doing our best to contain it to one area of the home, where it can be properly cleaned up. Upon arrival, our crews secure sheets of plastic with painter’s tape to stop dust from creeping into the rest of your house. After all of the removal work is done, we clean up any debris and haul it away in one of our trucks. This keeps the old carpet and padding from cluttering up your property until your trash day. We also clean the area with high powered vacuums that pick up any loose carpet fibers, small pieces of the padding and any dust created. Before we leave, we use air scrubbers to ensure we get rid of any dust that has escaped into the air. This process ensures that when we leave, your family is breathing clean and unaffected air.
