Remove Carpet from Wooden Floor


Gonna need to know more than that DSHA.

Is the carpet glued down?
If not, grab ahold of it and pull it out. What else can I say?

I wish it was not glued but it seems that it is. So it means that I would need to scrape it or cut into small pieces

Okay...what is the carpet backing made of. Is it a foam backing or what looks like just the bare carpet weaving?

Glued-down carpet can be a pain to remove. You are correct. The way to remove it is to cut it in strips maybe 12-16 inches wide, get a pliers, and go for it. The width of the workable strips depends on how much the carpet is fighting back. Some is easy to remove - some not.
