CARPET REMOVAL SERVICE & DUST FREE GRINDING – IMPORTANT FACTS BEFORE STARTING
Let’s face it, there are many companies in the United States that perform both traditional removals of carpet and also the more difficult glued down carpet flooring, but how many of them can grind or profile your concrete or wood subfloors? What does profiling mean in the context of subfloors?
Not many, in fact, most companies don’t even like to show videos of the methods they use to prepare floors because of the dust created. There are regulations about silica dust exposure that we take very seriously. Some companies don’t do anything to protect their workers or the homeowner, we do care.
Profiling is the complete removal of protruding staples, nails or screws, paint, varnish, adhesives, and other contaminants by mechanical methods, thus ensuring a flatter and a more bondable surface. This type of floor preparation is superior to any chemical removal method in existence.

Glued Carpet Up to $5/sq. yd
Furniture Moving $0.23/sq. ft
Carpet Disposal $.50–$1/sq. ft
Recycle Carpet $.05–$.25/pound
Carpet Removal Cost Factors
The cost factors below don’t note the fact that any floor repair must be done before new flooring is installed—repair of nail and staple holes are included in the cost at $0.96 to $4.34 per square foot. Carpet removal costs also don’t include reinstalling baseboards or trim which costs about $375 for a typical living room measuring 20’ x 20’). In addition to the basic cost of $1 to $2/sq. yd., factor in these extra costs below:
Removing Carpet from Stairs
Removing carpet from stairs takes extra time, as each step must be done one at a time. Each step will have carpet pad staples, tack strips, and padding that need removing. Expect to pay between $7 and $10 per step.
Remove Glued-Down Carpet
A glued-down carpet will mean a lot more work for the removal person because the glue used on the carpet is meant to last forever. And once you do get the carpet up, the glue must be scraped off the subfloor. Expect to spend up to $5 per square yard to remove the glued-down carpet.
Because of the time and labor involved in moving all the furniture out of one or several rooms, there is a fee for this service. It’s one place where you can save on the cost of removing the carpet. If your rooms are clean and empty of every single thing, the installers can go right to work. Else, expect to pay around $0.23/sq. ft. or $60/hour.
Cost to Dispose of Old Carpet
You can hire ajunk hauling company to come and pick up your old carpet and haul it off. Prices vary according to location, but you can expect to pay $0.50 to $3 per sq. ft. or about $80 total.   Sometimes they will haul to the landfill, but if they have access to a carpet recycler, they may haul it there. Some landfills accept carpeting, and some won’t.
Sometimes, if your carpet is still in good shape, it can be reused. An option for reuse includes listing it on a community board online—if someone wants it, they can come and pick it up, saving you the trouble.
Cost to Recycle Carpet
Ask your carpet professionalif they’ll bring your carpet to a recycling center if that’s your preference. Access to a recycling center depends on where you live. Check with your city or county to see what’s available to you. You can recycle used carpet at CARE (Carpet America Recovery Effort), or other recycling centers if they accept carpet. CARE charges $0.05 to $0.25 per pound of carpet, and carpet is heavy, weighing in at 4–5 pounds per square yard, so a 1,000 sq. ft of carpet could cost between $225 and $1,125 to recycle.
Carpet Removal Prices
A contractor charges $1 to $1.50 per square foot to remove carpet from a 12 by 12-foot room and haul it away.
If you want to remove the carpetyourself and then pay for someone to collect it the price lowers to $0.40 to $0.50 per square foot! This includes the driver, vehicle rental and gas. Be sure you cut it up into manageable bundles for loading into the vehicle otherwise you may be charged extra.
A note about recycling: Most carpet fibers can be recycled to create new products, but minimal infrastructure exists to do this. Nonprofit organization CARE (Carpet America Recovery Effort) has a database of carpet recyclers. Price varies based on your location. We recommend asking your removal company about their waste processing policy; some may reuse or resell your old flooring.
Cost to Remove Carpet and Pad
Carpet and pad removalcosts $1 to $1.50 per square foot which includes labor and waste removal.
Cost to Remove Carpet from Stairs
Many contractors bundle the cost of removing carpet from stairs into the overall price of $1 to $1.50 per square foot. You can request a per-step price if required. Removing 2 square feet will cost $2 to $3 per step.
The Building Officials and Code Administration (BOCA) specify a minimum tread depth of 9 inches and width of 2 feet and 8 inches for steps – which equals 2 square feet in total for a BOCA compliant step.
Cost to Rip Up Wall to Wall Carpet
A contractor charges $1 to $1.50 per square foot to remove wall-to-wall carpet, dispose of it and clean up. Removing this fitted flooring from a 12 by 12-foot room takes 2 to 4 hours.
Tearing Up Basement Carpeting
Removing basement carpeting costs $1 to $1.50 per square foot. If you live in a wet climate, consider removing your it to avoid mold growth.
Carpet Disposal Cost
Carpet disposal on its own costs $0.40 to $0.50 per square foot. This includes the vehicle and gas to transport the waste to the dumpsite. Pulling it up is an additional $0.50 - $1.00 per square foot for labor.
