Removing Saltillo Tile Floor Phoenix, AZ
Saltillo tile removal requires a masonry hammer, masonry chisel, and electric hammer-drill with masonry chisel. First, we’ll take the masonry chisel and hold it at an angle to the grout, then tap the head of the chisel to slowly remove it.
Once the grout is gone, we’ll set the electric hammer-drill to chisel mode and place it at an angle between the floor and the tile. Then we’ll chip away at the mortar join until the tile comes off. (This can be a messy process, and many tiles could crack and break along the way.)
Lastly, we’ll give the whole floor a once-over and remove any remaining mortar using the masonry hammer and chisel.
