One of the things that potential customers are always surprised to hear is that our process is free of chemicals, industrial solvents and other products that are commonly used to remove flooring and adhesive. By using state of the art tools and specialized machines, we are able to remove any type of flooring surface without needing to use these products. There are a few reasons that we choose to stay away from including chemicals in our process, and they vary from reducing our impact on the environment to keeping your family safe. Here are some of the top reasons we use an environmentally process, free of chemicals and solvents, to remove flooring surfaces.
We use skilled workers and state of the art tools
Our teams are made up of some of the best in the business. With years of experience and state of the art tools, our teams are able to remove every inch of flooring and glue without needing to use chemicals or solvents. In fact, some of our machinery removes up to 90 percent of the flooring area, leaving only small patches behind for us to remove by hand. Once all of the floor surface is gone, we use floor grinders to get rid of any trace of adhesive left behind. We have a full selection of angled and fine floor tools to ensure that we can handle any space, big or small. This process leaves the floor smooth and level without any need for chemicals to be applied to the surface.
Our commitment to the environment
Flooring removal creates waste that has to be disposed of, and a key part of our process is disposing of it responsibly. Our fleet of trucks allows us to remove the waste created at each job and take it to be responsibly disposed of in an eco friendly manner. In many cases, these materials can be recycled instead of thrown away, creating unnecessary waste and filling our landfills. Minimizing the use of chemicals in our process also helps to minimize impact on the environment and the air quality in your home.
Protecting your home and family
Chemicals can cause damage to the surfaces in your home, and reduce the air quality your family breathes. If you have babies, children or pets in the home, keeping your air quality high is important to keep them healthy. This is why many parents are switching to natural cleaning products instead of the traditional ones that include a high concentration of chemicals, and choosing organic foods to reduce the chemicals the children ingest. Some companies use high quantities of ammonia or other chemicals to help in removing flooring adhesive. We minimize the chance of any risk to your family by removing the flooring using special machines and hand tools. We also clean the area after work is finished, using pulse vacuums to pick up any dust and air scrubbers to neutralize any particles in the air. This leaves the air in your home as well as the floor surface clean.
Providing the fastest service
Our teams use the fastest method to remove your flooring and the adhesive underneath, leaving you with a clean floor ready to have a new surface installed anytime you are ready. Even carpets or wood flooring that are glued down using large amounts of industrial glue can easily be removed using our methods. We can also handle cases where the floor was installed on top of a wood or pad surface and then glued to the concrete surface. This can be done in as little as 24 hours, with no time needed for drying of chemicals or solvents and no residual smell. In many cases, our method is faster than removal methods that use chemicals as part of the process. This is especially true for commercial spaces where the amount of flooring and adhesive would call for a lot of chemicals to be used, and a long drying time.
Adaptability of our process
Our process is effective on many types of popular flooring, regardless of the method used to install them. From stone tiles, placed with inches of thick mortar to keep them stable, to carpet glued down to the concrete, we can handle it all. Non chemical, eco friendly flooring removal works on many types of flooring, including:
- Ceramic Tile
- Stone Tiles, including slate, travertine and granite
- Adhesives, including Mortar, Dryset, Thinset, Mastics and Glue
