Hi guys! We ripped out the carpet in our basement last weekend! The carpet was years old and so freaking dirty... we had the carpet cleaned and sanitized twice before moving in but there was a smell that stuck around. This project was supposed to be a simple task has turned into much more... Our plan is to rip the carpet up then buff and paint the concrete floors white.
If you follow our Instagram account (@jankytojackpot) you might have seen the huge crack we found under the carpet! We spoke with our contractor and filled the hole with some Quickrete hydraulic concrete then filled the smaller holes with Quickrete concrete crack seal.
We had tons of small/medium holes from the carpet because some genius nailed the planks into the concrete!! Now we wait for them to dry then buff and paint the floors! Subscribe to our blog or follow our Instagram for more updates!
