Why Do You Need To Be Careful While Removing Your Old Carpet?
When it comes to Carpet Removal jobs, there is a list of installation methods:
– Staple Gunned
If it’s a residential job, the carpet is most likely installed with:
– Staple Gun
Staple guns were the old method used to install carpets from the 1920s – 1990s, carpets installed after the 1990s will always be installed with smoothedge and not staple guns, as staple guns were phased out after this period, as well as asbestos underlays.
It’s extremely important that you know if the carpet is indeed staple gunned or not. If it is, there will be a “Brown Hessian Underlay” underneath the carpet. This must be sent to a lab such as AIRSAFE.NET.AU to test if it contains asbestos.
Dangerous contaminated dust is likely to be present in carpets (and underlays) even if the carpet appears to be in good condition (Especially underneath!). If carpet removal is not carried out carefully, other areas of the home such as children’s play areas, bedrooms, or living areas can easily become contaminated with dangerous dust particles. That may be nearly invisible to the eye.
