I wrote a piece about removing carpet to expose real hardwood flooring underneath not too long ago. And here is another story about the benefits of removing carpet that covers a few of interesting points:
1) That carpeting is often found to be a source of irritants that cause allergy symptoms.
2) That because of fashions, carpeting was chosen to cover real hardwood flooring in times past, even though today hardwood floors are a feature that makes a property more sellable.
3) When removing carpeting through out an entire property, it’s important for someone on the crew to be able to make a good hamburger.
I think another thing I take away from this story is that a big job like this is a great family and friends affair. It can be strenuous, and kind of messy. But, hey; stress draws families and friends closer together, doesn’t it? Point number three is obviously vital to the success of this of course. And plenty of fizzy beverages too.
