Enter the total area of the carpet, cost per square foot for carpet removal, total distance for disposal, and disposal rate per mile into the calculator to determine the carpet removal cost.

## Carpet Removal Cost Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the carpet removal cost.

CRC = (A * CR) + (D * DR)

Variables:

- CRC is the total carpet removal cost A is the total area of the carpet in square feet CR is the cost per square foot for carpet removal D is the total distance for disposal in milesDR is the disposal rate per mile

To calculate the carpet removal cost, multiply the total area of the carpet by the cost per square foot for carpet removal. Then, multiply the total distance for disposal by the disposal rate per mile. Add the two results together to get the total carpet removal cost.

## What is a Carpet Removal Cost?

Carpet removal cost refers to the amount of money charged by professionals to remove old or damaged carpet from a home or commercial space. This cost typically includes labor, disposal of old carpet, and may also involve charges for moving furniture or for removing carpet from stairs. The cost can vary depending on the size of the area, the type of carpet, and the complexity of the job.

## How to Calculate Carpet Removal Cost?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Carpet Removal Cost:

- First, determine the total area of the carpet in square feet (A).
- Next, determine the cost per square foot for carpet removal (CR).
- Next, determine the total distance for disposal in miles (D).
- Finally, determine the disposal rate per mile (DR).
- After gathering the variables, use the formula CRC = (A * CR) + (D * DR) to calculate the Carpet Removal Cost.

**Example Problem:**

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge:

total area of the carpet in square feet (A) = 500

cost per square foot for carpet removal (CR) = $2.50

total distance for disposal in miles (D) = 10

disposal rate per mile (DR) = $0.75
