Average rate on carpet removal?

Average rate on carpet removal?

Answer:

If you do it yourself, you will save the labour charges. To remove wall to wall carpet, you need to have a good carpet knife; a good HD vacuum, and a smooth edge nail puller. Simply pull off the carpet from the smooth edge strips, then remove the strips with a nail puller. You may want to sand the floor where the nail strips were, but use steel wool and you won't have as much work for the refinish. OR call up a carpet removal/installer for his quote for the job.
In my area (toledo, oh) .25 cents per sq foot is average for the installer to make. Which means the carpet store is probably charging .50
