Homeowners are often concerned about how long flooring removal will take, and want to know how long the process will take when they call on the phone or fill out a form online. In the case of hardwood floors, it can be impossible to say without seeing the actual floor. The process of wood floor removal can vary based on the way your flooring was initially put in. Having the essential machines and knowing how to approach each type of removal helps to inform and guide the process. With a plan of attack in place that includes the preparation and cleanup processes, we can effectively get rid of any kind of wood floor in a short time.
There are essentially two types of wood flooring installation. Some floors are put in with no thin set underneath, simply locked in place plank to plank. These types of floors are simpler to remove and do not generally create as much of a mess during removal. But if the hard wood floors were stuck in place using thin set or mortar, removing them will be harder. During installation, the crew will have used a thick layer of the thin set to make the flooring stick. Getting this layer off is a vital part of the removal process, but it isn’t easy. In some cases, the wood flooring material was stuck onto a sheet of plywood to help give the end product extra stability. In these homes and commercial spaces, removal efforts are even more difficult and can be messier if they aren’t contained properly. Extra debris is created on these jobs, so it is vital to have proper debris removal in place to avoid having a large amount of debris cluttering the property after work is completed.
