We Haul Away All Types of Carpets
If you have an old loop pile or cut pile carpet you need to get rid of, you’ve come to the right place!
Loop pile(or berber)means the fibers are angled into little loops, which makes the carpet more durable and stain-resistant. Cut pile carpets, on the other hand, cut the threat tips,so they don’t make a loop. These carpets are considered softer but, at the same time, denser than the loop ones. Finally, there is a mixed type that combines the best qualities of both cut and loop piles. Importantly, any of the mentioned typesof carpet should be disposed of properly. And by properly,we mean environmentally-friendly because we believe that proper waste management matters!
It is essential to keep in mind which materials your unwanted carpet is made of. Commonly, rugs are made from various natural and synthetic fibers: wool, nylon, polypropylene, polyester, tri extra, as well as various natural materials. Each has different characteristics thus, require a particular way of disposal. That’s why, when it’s time to say goodbye to your old shaggy carpet, make sure to consult your local recyclers or junk collection companies before lugging it to the curb.

Frequently Asked Questions
→ How to Remove a Carpet?
Removing a carpet is not an easy job, but it also depends on the type of carpet you’re willing to discard.
SMALL.Small carpets, for example, are the easiest to handle. If the rug is not nailed down by tack strips, simply roll it, and leave it next to your garbage cart at the curbside.
BIG.The bigger carpers require some efforts as the most efficient way to prepare them for the removal is shredding and rolling them. This way, you save a couple of bucks and precious time needed for the removal. You’re going to need to cut the carpet to smaller sections (3-4 feet), roll them into tight bundles, secure with strings, and place them next to your garbage cart at the curb. But when you do that, make sure not to hurt yourself with the tools or tack strips!
WALL-TO-WALL.In order to prepare your wall-to-wall carpet for removal,it needs to be detached from the tack strips that hold it by the walls. Starting from the corner, grab the mat with pliers and pull. Try pulling with your hand (if more convenient) until able to cut a small section. Keep pulling back the carpet and slicing it into strips. Having prepared your carpet for the removal, call competent junk haulers like WE JUNK, and rest assured that it is going to be removed and disposed of in a green way.
