Most homeowners remove their tiles for replacement or repair. Cracked and broken tiles are dangerous, while stained and old tiles simply need to be upgraded. Tile removal is tough to do as a DIY project; without the right skills and tools, you’ll put yourself at risk of serious injury. To get your home’s tile work removed correctly and safely, you need a professional tile removal service in Houston. Look at Cutting Edge Flooring Services to do the dust-free removal job right the first time.
Dust-Free Removal: What Is It?
Dust-free or dustless removal is a way of removing floor tiles while reducing the number of dangerous particulates that get into the air. When tile stripping tools are equipped with special vacuum attachments, it’s possible.
The dustless method protects workers, homeowners, pets, children, and the surrounding area from harmful dust particles. One such particle is known as crystalline silica, which is a known health hazard and has been labeled as a carcinogen.
Procedures and Methods
Dust-free tiling removal requires the use of special tools that chisel and grind away the tile and thinset mortar layers. At the same time, vacuum attachments gather up the dust that’s a natural product of the removal process. With this innovative method, it’s easier to maintain a normal routine while work is ongoing.
Who Sees the Biggest Benefits From Dustless Tile Flooring Removal?
Though everyone can realize the advantages of dust-free tiling removal, we’ve noticed that certain clients are more likely to request the service. For instance, residential customers often choose dust-free removal because they have children or other family members with allergies, asthma, and other breathing troubles. Homeowners are more likely to pay for this service when protecting interior surfaces is a top priority.
Commercial clients in the restaurant and healthcare settings choose the dust-free method for cleanliness and sanitation reasons. We sometimes work with contractors, including remodelers, interior designers, and construction companies. Businesses that value a dust-free setting include:
- Assisted living facilities and retirement homes
- Nursing homes, hospitals, and other healthcare facilities
- Daycare centers, schools, and churches
We even work with property managers on commercial and residential enterprises, such as resorts, convention centers, apartment complexes, and much more. Contact us today to find out how we can help with your next tile job.
Let Us Do the Dirty Work For You
Cutting Edge Flooring Services has the equipment, skills, and experience to do the job right from the beginning. When you trust us with your tile work, you’ll avoid collateral damage, accidents, injuries, and job delays. Our dust-free method eliminates the creation and spread of harmful dust, making the entire environment safer.
Conventional hammer-and-chisel methods aren’t just rough on your flooring, but they also generate a great deal of debris and dust. With our unique, safe process, your home or business stays healthier and you’ll experience the benefits explained in the sections below.
It’s Many cleaners
Dust-free flooring removal is cleaner for a range of reasons. Firstly, the removal machines are designed to capture dust at the source and prevent it from becoming airborne. The vacuum method prevents dangerous dust particles from covering furniture and getting into occupants’ lungs. Not only does the dust-free method leave the entire building clean, but it also leaves the subsurface ready for the installation of new flooring. It’s just an all-around better process!
The Process is More Efficient
Traditional tile stripping methods are quite time-consuming. First, you’ll have to cover furniture and other items to protect them from dust. Then, you’ll need to remove the tile and the thinset mortar, creating a great deal of dust in the process. With a dust-free tile flooring removal service in Houston, the machines remove the tile and take away the dust at the same time. No drop cloths or in-depth clean-ups are required.
The Job Gets Done Sooner
Our certified contractors use proprietary processes to deliver the highest-quality service in the shortest length of time. From the initial estimate to the project’s completion, we’ll make the process as effortless as possible for home and business owners. All projects are pre-planned so our removal teams can begin work immediately. With our help, it’s possible to strip tile in a timely fashion.
Dust-Free Tile Removals Are Better For Your Family’s Health
The dust-free method is much safer than conventional strategies. The ingestion of grout and tile dust particles is hazardous to your health, and those with allergies and other respiratory conditions can be adversely affected. Tile dust is so fine that it even gets into a building’s HVAC system and spreads into every room. With dustless tile stripping, the dust is captured at its source and these risks are eliminated.
The equipment and tools we use work smoother and faster than those used in conventional settings. For example, our high-speed chisels allow us to make precise cuts without sending debris flying into the room. We’ll also use commercial-grade HEPA filtration systems to ensure that dust clouds aren’t formed. With our advanced technology and tools, we’ll get the job done quickly, efficiently, and most importantly, safely.
