The Dangers of Dust Inhalation

The dust that results from floor removal, more so specifically tile removal is not just a nuisance due to the mess, it is highly dangerous to breathe in and can lead to permanent health issues. During a home renovation that involves floor removal you’ll want to be as safe as possible and take precautionary measures. When you hire Breathe Easy Floor Removal, our dustless floor removal process will remove 99% of the dust before it is airborne!

What is dust anyways?

Millions of Americans suffer from allergies, in fact 50 million Americans have allergies per year and 25 million Americans have asthma. Approximately 50% of the dust in your home is actually from soil that has been brought in from the outside either on shoes, clothes or just airborne particles. The other 50% is a combination of micro-sized particle debris like mold, bacteria, skin cells, fungi, food products and more.

The carpeting in your home may contain as much as 2,000,000 bacteria cells per square inch. When it comes to the dust that comes from tile removal, not only does it contain silica, which is the most dangerous component, it also can contain any fungi or bacteria particles that have been trapped beneath the floor. You don’t want to breathe this in, especially if you have asthma, allergies or any type of respiratory issues or conditions. Materials that can release silica dust into the air include: rock, sand, quartz, brick, stone and more.

What is so bad about tile dust?

During the floor removal process when the tile or other flooring material is ground up and broken apart, it can release microscopic particles of silica into the air, this dust quickly spreads throughout every inch of your home. The dust will be found on the furniture, kitchen counters and will go in the HVAC system, which will further spread it throughout the home. Silica is a known carcinogen, which means that prolonged exposure can cause severe lung issues.

When you hire us to do your floor removal, you can Breathe Easy.
