Our Process for Tile Removal in Phoenix
The first step in removing a tile floor is to clear the area of any furniture or other free-standing items. We’ll make sure to cover any vents and remove the baseboard trim from your walls so as not to damage them.
Next, we’ll need to create a starting point. If there is not an obvious one, we will have to break apart a tile with a hammer and chisel so we can get the rest of the tiles up. The actual tile removal part of the process is the most time consuming, especially since we can’t use too much force or risk end up damaging the floor.
We’ll then need to inspect the underlayment to your floor. If it is in good condition, we may be able to get away with removing all of the floor adhesive and install a new floor on top. However, typically we’ll need to remove the underlayment as well, as it’ll often be torn or water-damaged. It usually is a good idea to remove the underlayment anyway so you can be sure that you are starting with good support when the time for fresh installation comes.
