Replace Carpet with Laminate Flooring…

Laminate flooring is one of our many favorite types of flooring at Carpet Wood Floor Rockville, because it is cost-effective, attractive, and versatile, which makes it the perfect choice in any home in Rockville, MD!

Having these as one of the main reason to switch, we have found that many people are now choosing to update their current flooring to one of the many types of laminate flooring available in the market.

A lot of people are replacing their old and worn-out carpets in living areas to the more durable and affordable laminate flooring. Updating your carpeted flooring in your home to laminate flooring is much easier than you might think if you call a laminate flooring Professional near me.

While one of the benefits of having a laminate flooring, is that you can actually lay it straight over present flooring, however, your current flooring needs to be levelled and smooth, which unfortunately, carpet flooring is not. Therefore, you will need to remove your carpet flooring before you can lay your new attractive and durable laminate flooring.

Carpet removal is a very smooth process than you may think! If you want to Do it yourself, make sure you wear the proper protective equipment such as appropriate gloves and a respirator mask to protect your hands and prevent yourself from breathing in too much dust!

You would need a Stanley knife, a a wrecking bar or a flat head screwdriver, a pair of pliers, and may be a couple of friends to help with the heavy lifting!

The steps:

  1. You can start by cutting a strip of the carpet using a Stanley knife, which should be about 4cm wide and 1m long in one corner of the carpet.
  2. Using a flat head screwdriver (or a wrecking bar), gently pry the strip off the tracks underneath.
  3. When you can safely reach in under the carpet, pull up the whole corner and then follow the edge around, pulling the carpet up and rolling it into the center of the room. Once the carpet is all pulled up, you can remove it, but probably best to ask a friend or two to help you carry it out – carpets are dishonestly heavy!
  4. Once the carpet has been removed from the floor, it’s time to remove the underlay. It’s basically the same process as removing the carpet; pull up the underlay from the edges of the room and roll it into the middle of the room. Once again, you’ll need some help to carry it out.
  5. Now, the hardest task, you will need to use your screwdriver to remove the carpet gripper around the room. Be very careful of the nails!

Once the carpet and gripper are removed from the floor, the next step is to concoct the floor for the laminate. Once the floor is all set, you can install your stunning new laminate flooring or let one of the Carpet Wood Floor Rockville contractors do this for you.

By following this simple process, you can say goodbye to your old and worned carpet and enjoy your beautiful and durable laminate flooring in no time!
