Carpet tack strips

Posted by T. Guy on January 19th, 1999 02:58 PM

I have recently been ripping up numerous rooms of 20 year old avacado shag that is over hard wood. If I am going to replace this wall to wall carpet do installers reuse the tack strips or should I rip them up? Do they even use tack strips anymore or is it all staples now? I kind of want to keep the number of holes in the wood to a minimum but I would also like to thoroughly clean these floors before putting new carpet down.
