Removing Wall-mounted Carpet
Often the easiest carpet installation tip is to remove the current wall-mounted carpet and prepare the surface for installation. Next, scour the vinyl backing board for any loose staples or nails. Vacuum the entire area to remove dust, debris, or cobwebs. Properly prep the surface for carpet installation.
Cutting Carpet (Anatomy of a Job)
To cut carpet properly, begin by removing existing carpeting, taking care not to cut too much off of length. Next, score the carpet’s surface along the length of the room with a utility knife so the fibers of the carpet are exposed and the carpet’s backing is exposed. Since finishes have to be sanded smooth before anything, use a minimum of stroke of the disadvantage. Use light pressure to remove any adhesive and nails from the carpeted walls.
Next, score the floor to expose the sub-surface. Use a minimum of stroke in the direction of the carpet’s length, keeping in mind the width of the carpet backing. Once the main carpet is exposed, take out the carpet backing, following the carpet’s length. Cut this cloth to the proper length and to the size of the selected carpet, using the utility knife. Using the utility knife, cut the backing. Keep in mind that the carpet backing is heavy, and the carpet backing is usually one of the heavyest expenses homeowners have to face.
Once the old carpet is cut away and the new carpet is cut in length, secure the edges by using screws. That quick, and effortless job will likely eliminate any problems associated with the removal of old carpets.
