Removing the tile from a concrete floor is miserable work. Getting the tiles off the concrete requires a lot of work, effort, and time but not when you’ve got Floor Dozers on your side. With us, removing tile from concrete floor in Mesa has never been so easy.
Why removing tiles from concrete is so hard
Removing tiles from concrete is so hard because, more often than not, the concrete and the tiles cured together during installation. A few years ago, that was how the tiles were put in during construction. The contractors would adhere the tiles to fresh concrete, mortaring the tiles to the concrete and letting them cure as a unit.
As you can imagine, getting the tiles out in this instance is much harder than on other surfaces. It is an uphill task that will break your back and take forever to get done. Afterward, you’ll have to figure out how to get rid of all the tiles. We have the tools, experience, and know-how to get the work done in a fraction of the time, leaving you with a blank slate to lay down your new flooring.
Should I use a hammer to remove tiles from a concrete floor?
No, do not use a hammer to do this kind of tile removal. Why? First off, tiles, whether ceramic, porcelain, etc. tend to behave like glass when you hammer at them. Every time you hit a tile, the impact creates conchoidal fractures. This makes the tiles break off into shards with smooth, razor-sharp edges that can really cause damage.
What should you do instead? Get in touch with us! We use state-of-the-art equipment to get the tiles off your concrete floor with zero risks of sending bullet-like shards of tile flying everywhere. Stay safe, call in the professionals.
What you need to do before removing tile from concrete floor in Mesa
Before we come in for the tile removal, you should make sure your rooms are ready for the work. This is a quick process that will get the work done faster while ensuring your belongings stay intact.
- Move all free-standing items from the area – coffee-table, stand, side table, etc. all need to be out of the area. This allows you to get them in a safer area and ensure they’re still in good condition and enables us to get to work faster.
- Cover anything that you can’t move – do you have items you can’t move but need the tiles around them removed? You can cover them using a tarp to make sure they are safe from dust. With us, you need not worry about dust getting everywhere because we use dustless saws and HEPA vacuums. The dustless saws reduce the amount of dust released into the air, and the HEPA vacuums get any dust particles that do get in the air.
