Pulling Creeping Charlie

CC or Creeping Charlie.
I have been busy pulling this out for a week, usually twenty-thirty minutes a day. I'm making progress but should I be concerned that quite often as I pull it up it is able to also drag with it my St. Augustine (floratam), now the ST.A is not removed but often three or four of the smaller roots along the stolons are loosened.
Does anyone have any opinions on how bad this is for the floratam?

RE: Pulling Creeping Charlie

Where do you live and can you post a picture of the weed in the grass. Best pictures for this would be about 3 inches away from the grass on a cloudy day or in the shade.

I'm asking because creeping charlie is normally a problem in the north.
