Uplift & Removal Service

It’s out with the old floor and in with the new! We can arrange for the hard work to be taken care of.

Getting rid of your old flooring might seem like an easy DIY task, but it’s one of those jobs that can be more hassle than it’s worth. At cheapcarpetsnearme, our recommended fitting partners offer a range of services that make buying carpet or smooth flooring a joy from start to finish, and one of the most popular is the Uplift and Removal service. Please note: Uplift and Removal isn’t available on orders for our Online Only / Direct to Home products.

What’s included in the Uplift & Removal service?

Before your beautiful new flooring can go down, the old flooring must come up. Removing old flooring is a messy job, and there’s also the old accessories to get rid of, such as underlay, grippers, and carpet tacks. Once they’ve been removed, the subfloor beneath needs to be inspected to see if any work needs doing. Finally, the subfloor needs to be swept and vacuumed so it’s free from dust and dirt, ready for the new flooring to be installed. Our trusted fitting partners will also remove and dispose of your old flooring in a safe and sensible manner. All of this is included in our Uplift and Removal service, so you can sit back and relax.

How long does it take to remove old flooring?

The time it takes to remove your old floor depends on what type of flooring it is and how it’s been fitted. Carpet is very quick to remove, maybe even less than 10 minutes for an average-sized room, so this will normally take place on the day of fitting. Vinyl flooring that’s only stuck down at the edges can also be ripped up within minutes.

How much does it cost?

For the uplift and removal of your old carpet  we charge £4.50 a square metre, and for fitting the new carpet allow £3.50 per square metre.

We charge £10 for removing a door if they need removing due to the thickness off the carpet, we don’t put the doors back on though. We want to make that clear, as doors are easy to come off, but sometimes hard to put back on, or they may need sanding down at the bottom of the door. We don’t provide that service unfortunately.

Let us go forward in this battle fortified by conviction that those who labour in the service of a great and good cause will never fail.
