I Suspect That.....

The staples were to hold the carpet pad in place, not the carpet itself. It has been my experience that the staples are slightly above the surface, and that a good flat nosed pliers will pull them straight out with minimum damage to the floor. If you are going to sand and refinish the floor, then I have found that a good sharp ice scraper (like you use on the sidewalk) will pop them out.
Good luck!
