Quick and easy carpet removal and disposal
Keeping a carpet looking and smelling fresh is a lot of work. In addition to frequent vacuum cleaning, you should also be having it steam cleaned once or twice per year at a minimum to keep mold and bacteria under control. But when a carpet’s seen its best years gone by and no amount of cleaning will help it, it’s time to rip it out and toss it away.
Junk haulers registered with JunkGator can help tear out and remove carpets from start to finish, including household carpeting, industrial carpets, commercial carpets, nylon carpets, polyester carpets, natural fiber carpets, urethane carpets, area rugs, Persian rugs, floor mats and much more.
Moreover, carpet removal teams can assist with the removal of carpet padding, backing, carpet runners, grip pads for rugs, carpet tile and more. Waste that can be sorted and recycled will be separated from waste that can only go into the landfill, thereby diverting as much waste as possible from landfills.
