Remove Underlayment and Staples
Once all of the carpet has been removed, it's time to remove the padding following the same steps outlined above (Image 1). The most time-consuming step in the process is removing staples. Use pliers to pull each staple from the subfloor (Image 2), then place staples into disposable plastic cup.
Remove Tack Strips
Loosen tack strips around room's perimeter by tapping mini crowbar under strips with hammer until tack strips are knocked loose from subfloor (Image 1). Use the crowbar to pry the strips loose then throw them away (Image 2). Finally, use a shop vacuum to thoroughly clean subfloor.
