Pulling up Carpet - what can we do?
I seem to have lost the post I wrote earlier!
We just bought a 70s house with pretty dirty wall-to-wall berber carpet. The living room and dining area have hardwood under the carpet, but the hallway and 3 bedrooms (11x12, 11x14, 10x11) have particle board directly under the carpet pad. We have to pull up the carpet because my youngest is allergic to dust mites.
Can we buy just a slap-down tile that's cheap enough and not terribly off-gassing or would it be less expensive to paint? We only have 6 days now to do this before we move in.
What would be the low-budget, green options that don't require much a huge amount of work? We have to pack our rental with 2 kids and move everything and it's the holiday season if that gives you an idea of our time availability. Both my husband and I are on vacation until the 3rd of Jan. so we have a lot of time that we would not otherwise have.
