DIY experts recommend wearing a good charcoal respirator (not just a dust mask) when removing old carpet, and there’s a very important reason for this. Even with regular vacuuming, carpets are dust magnets, and carpet removal is always a dusty job. In addition to regular household dust (and lots of it), there is the potential to release mold spores, fungi, and bacteria into the air as well. In addition to triggering asthma attacks, carpet dust can cause allergy flair ups and skin irritations.
Once the carpet is pulled up, rolled up, and carried out of the building, you have to take care of all that yuck you’ve found underneath the carpeting. This can range from padding which contains even more dust (and also has to be removed), to glops of old carpet adhesives, to tack strips and staples, and more.
