Best Carpet Junk Removal Services in Palm Beach, FL
If you’re thinking about removing an old carpet or finally going for a different type of floor after all this time, you’ll have to keep in mind that removing or replacing old carpets not only takes a lot of work but also makes you lose a good opportunity to keep your floors intact as much as possible when you do it wrongly. Carpet junk removal is one of our main services at Palm Beach Junk Removal and Trash Haulers, and if you’re having problems dealing with the disposal and even recycling of your old carpet, we’re here for you.
When we mention carpets, this can either be the regular ones that you can easily remove and roll together, so we pick them up and take them to the right facilities for recycling, donate them, or dispose of them based on their condition, or it could be the usual carpet that is all over your residential and commercial property and needs to be changed and removed carefully, so there are no issues with the floors once you’re done.
Our job is to make sure you get the carpet removed in no time and can start working on your floors right away. When you’re removing it whatsoever, you need to be careful when trying to determine how the carpet is fixed to the floor and if you can deal with the removal without any damage to the structure.
Most carpets can be pulled up with some brute force, so the tack strips are just separated and allow you to take all the items off. While doing so, you will need to cut your carpet if it covers a great part of your floors, so this process is easier while you continue pulling each part of the element.
How Are Carpets Fixed to the Floor?
Usually, with glue, that will leave some leftovers once you pull the carpet and start removing it. This is common as the glue used is quite strong, and it is naturally going to leave some residues behind in your foundation and walls.
The same can happen with tack strips, as they are small planks of wood studded with nails that tend to hold the carpet to the floor or space where it was installed. The pieces will usually come out when you pull the carpet, but if you’re careful with their removal using a hammer and going over the perfect angle to get rid of them, you could reuse those strips if you are going to install a new carpet after getting rid of this one.
Now, removing any glue or tack strips doesn’t have to be a difficult task. Usually, you can remove glue with a razor, scraper, and 5-1 tool. The difficulty will be removing hardened glue that doesn’t want to come up, and this can be solved by heating the area with boiling water. You can go back to your scraping tool and start scraping the softened glue.
Meanwhile, carpet tack strips will need to be removed using a pry bar and a hammer, and carefully locate the nail head in the carpet so you can go one by one or multiple at the same time, depending on how it is done.
How Do You Dispose of Your Carpet Next?
You can contact us and have our team pick up all your old carpet, so you don’t have to throw it in your dumpster and garbage bin, especially when local waste pickup services don’t tend to take old carpets in their trucks, even less if the quantity is not small.
We will be there to support your need and take care of the full disposal by either taking it to the right facility with the machinery to process it or to a recycling center and transition place so the materials can be saved and reused for more than one or two purposes.
We will make sure the carpet isn’t left in a corner or in a hauling site as we care about the environment. Our company Palm Beach Junk Removal and Trash Haulers, is proud to be a top company that focuses on and prioritizes eco-friendliness and how we can make sure that all the waste, junk, and items we help remove and get disposed of go to the right places and green ones if possible.
Besides getting the carpet after you’ve removed it, we can also help with the removal process if you’re having difficulties and leave our team the hard work of removing all the nails and pulling up the carpet in no time.
