Q: Is there a tool to remove 1 1/4″ staples from wood floors without breaking the staple? How do I go about removing staples from wood floor?

A: Ingenuity is the best tool. :) Are you talking about “U” shaped carpet staples? They can be tough. Screw driver, nail punch, wire cutters and a I’ve seen a tool at the hardware store which I don’t know the name of. It looks like wire cutters, except the cutting edges are facing the front of the cutters. They look like something you could pull a tooth out with.
