What Happens with Tile Removal?
You know you want a new floor, and your old tiles need removing. What steps can you expect to face?
Although you may have a loose tile, these are usually stuck to the floor using “thinset.” Once this thinset bonds to the concrete and your tiles, the tiler places the grout for the final finish.
You can get types of thinset and each stronger than the previous
- Mortar thinset: Similar to what they use to lay bricks.
- Fortified: You may find this as the standard thinset and is close to concrete strength.
- Flexbond: Contains polymers that allow movement in the tiles. It helps prevent cracking and possible lifting.
If you have a home with tiles laid before the 1980’s you may have an asbestos mix, and you will need Queen Creek dust-free tile removal professionals.
