Easy Replacement and Carpet Repair


 
Home Improvement,Fashion & Cosmetics,Crafts
No matter how much you try sometimes, you just can't get a carpet to work with you. Whether it's the look, smell, texture, style, or those unruly stains, a carpet just might not cooperate with what you want it to do or how you want it too look.

If your carpet is unwilling to work with you, you might have to consider replacing it. Replacing old carpet with a new floor covering is one of the most expensive changes homeowners can make.

Removal charges can be as expensive as installation fees, so by removing the old carpet yourself you can easily save hundreds of dollars or more.

Follow the tips below and you'll be on your way to saving money and getting the finished product you want!

Start early. Moving furniture and removing old carpet takes time, so it's important to start early enough to get the job done before the installers arrive. If you're only replacing the carpet in one room and don't expect any sub-floor issues, this may only require a few hours, but larger jobs could require a full day or two of preparation. The more furniture and personal items there are to move, and the more rooms you are removing carpet from, the more time you need to allow. Keep in mind that this process is similar to if you were moving to a new home. Every single item has to be removed from the room and stored somewhere else until the new carpet is in.

If you have a lot of shelving or display cabinets, start emptying these right away. Use boxes or plastic bins to help move items in bulk and make them easier to store. Remove drawers and shelving from cabinets to make the furniture pieces easier to move.

Have a plan. This is particularly important if you are replacing the carpet in multiple rooms. Figure out ahead of time where each piece of furniture will be going. Measure to make sure the furniture will fit through doorways and into the space you're planning to store them in. It's not uncommon for door widths to be inconsistent throughout the house. Don't assume that if a piece fit through one doorway, it will fit through another. It will save a lot of struggle and anguish (and possible hernias) later if you map out the furniture moving before lifting a single item.

Cut the carpet. Once all the furniture is out of the room, it's time to pull up the old carpet. It's easiest to pull it out and dispose of it if you cut the carpet first into manageable strips. Carpet is tough to cut through, so it's important to have a strong blade in your utility knife.

Pull up the carpet. The edges of carpet are held down by tack strips and also tucked underneath the baseboards. It's easiest to grab the first strip of carpet by the newly cut edge to avoid sticking your fingers where the tack strips are. Grab the cut edge near the baseboard. Pull up and then towards yourself. The carpet should come up fairly easily, popping off of the tack strips and then slipping out from under the baseboards. When you've pulled the first strip of carpet completely off the tack strips, drag it into the center of the room and roll it up for easy carrying and removal.
