Is Removing Tile Flooring Yourself a Bad Idea?

To cut right to the chase, “DIY” tile floor removal is not a good idea. Especially if you don’t want a dusty mess left behind, that you will be stuck cleaning up for months. In addition to cleaning, you will be exposed to the threat of the toxic dust particles that are released during a traditional tile floor removal.

During tile floor removal, carcinogenic silica dust can be released into the air and quickly spreads throughout your home. This dust can get in your bedrooms, bathrooms, throughout the kitchen in the cabinets etc. The dust is easily distributed throughout the home via the HVAC system.

Removing Tile on Your Own is Harder Than You Think

Without the assistance of a professional company like Breathe Easy Dustless Flooring Removal, removing tile can actually be an extremely time-consuming project with a higher level of difficulty than expected. The time is takes to remove the flooring depends significantly on what is below the floor. You may not know what lies beneath the tile floor, the previous owners or installers could have attached is to anything from mason board underlayment, to cement or some other type of material.

The tile floor removal process involves a lot of hard work, such as; breaking, chiseling, hauling off, dusting etc. Not to mention the risk of damaging the material below, or yourself. Many people believe removing the tile is probably as simple as easily popping out tiles, making a pile and revealing a smooth surface below that the new flooring material can be attached too. Unfortunately, this just isn’t the case.

If you do choose to remove the flooring on your own, just know there will be a large amount of dust left behind. This dust is harmful to breathe in, it is especially harmful for individuals with health issues: asthma, allergies, COPD, autoimmune issues etc. The dust left behind will be left in the home for months without the help of a dustless floor removal company. Our equipment removes 99% of the carcinogenic silica dust before it is even airborne! Attempting to remove the floor with an unqualified company or yourself could result in injury and may cause serious and permanent health problems.

In addition to a dusty mess, you will be stuck with having to haul off and dispose of the old tile flooring, you may even have to hire a company to haul or the debris and / or come to clean the home.
