Carpet Removal & Carpet Disposal Services in Augusta

Whether you are updating your carpeting for a longer lifespan or switching flooring choices completely, removing and disposing of carpeting is a messy job. Not only do you have to worry about pulling it up along with the glue and tacks; you also have to dispose of it. You can’t put down any other flooring material successfully until all remnants of it are gone – carpeting and padding included.

Can I Recycle My Carpeting or Area Rug?

For economically conscious people, what happens after the carpet is removed is a concern. Fortunately, most carpeting styles can be recycled. Some landfills refuse to take area rugs and carpets due to the types of materials used in the manufacturing process. Some chemicals, plastics, and fibers are not biodegradable, meaning they will not break down. That means, they will forever be stuck in a landfill, harming groundwater and the environment. When we recycle carpeting, we keep it out of landfills, and we also can reuse the materials to make new products.

Carpet Removal and Carpet Disposal for Storm and Flood Clean-Up

Carpeting that is left after a flood or storm is likely to mold and when mold is left unaddressed, it can lead to a health hazard. At Junk-in-the-Box, we understand the process of mold growth, and we address flooding conditions quickly to reduce the risk of further moisture and mold hazards and dangers.
