If you're replacing your old carpet with hardwood, vinyl, or laminate flooring - or simply new carpet - you still have to dispose of the old material.
And that's not the easiest chore in the world. Especially if you try to do it yourself!
Transforming Your Home with a New Floor Covering
There's little to compare to a home with recently installed new carpeting flowing from room to room, offering luxurious softness and warmth throughout the house. Except, perhaps, for a home with new hardwood or faux wood flooring that instills a look of subtle elegance and a bit of rustic charm.
In fact, there are multiple options for new floor coverings today running the gamut from classic carpeting to authentic, hardwood planking, to all types of materials in between.
According to one home living website, the "in between" includes products such as:
- Engineered hardwood
- Ceramic tile
- Natural stone
- Polished concrete
When it comes to what's the most popular, engineered hardwood has been on an upward trend for that last few years. A low-maintenance and affordable alternative to traditional hardwoods, engineered wood flooring is a type of hybrid wood floor material. It is made with a plywood core finished off with a solid wood plank. This makes it less expensive than actual hardwood flooring, while offering the strength, look and feel of the highly-prized alternative.
Always a top choice, "wood-look" flooring options such as laminate and vinyl are still strong contenders for the number one spot in flooring choices. Technology as improved with both materials and they can not only mimic the look and feel of real hardwood, but are far more water-resistant and durable. Not to mention affordable.
A third popular selection for flooring that is in keeping with the current trend in "wood look" products is wood look ceramic tile.
According a post at The Spruce,
"Wood-look ceramic tile looks like wood from a distance—i.e., before entering the room. Upon entering, the illusion begins to break up. Upon close examination, you may be unconvinced. That's because wood-look ceramics will always have a bit of a sheen, or gloss, to the surface."
But what all these flooring choices have in common - aside from many of them mimicking the look of hardwood - is that they require pulling up and disposing of the old flooring material. Whether that's carpet, tile, linoleum, or some older version of vinyl or laminate, it all has to go.
And that is a major project, especially if you replacing the flooring in an entire home.
So, what's the best way to handle that?

One of the great things about old carpet is that it doesn't have to right into a landfill, either. In fact, according the earth911.com website,
"Despite complications, nearly all types of carpet can be recycled. Depending on the fiber, carpet can be broken down and used to make a new product."
In addition, thanks to new technologies in manufacturing processes, up to 85 percent of laminate flooring can now be recycled, as well. While vinyl flooring products are a bit more problematic when it comes to recycling, there are alternatives for this reusing or repurposing these materials.
