How Are Glued Down Wood Floors Removed?
Our glue down wood floor removal service begins with the in home consultation. One of our crew members will examine your floors to give you an accurate idea of the amount of work needed to remove them. The estimate is free of charge and a perfect time for you to ask any questions you may have about the process.
Before beginning work on any job, our crews do the most they can to protect your home, beginning with bringing aluminum ramps to prevent damage as we bring our machines in, and securing plastic sheets with painters tape to prevent dust from accumulating on any surfaces. We also remove any baseboards or custom pieces of trim that may be close to the work area. If your wood flooring was glued directly to the concrete surface, we use a specialized, state of the art machine with blade to scrape away the flooring and most of the glue below the surface. This blade is thicker and sharper than the ones used in other circumstances to allow both the wood planks and most of the adhesive underneath to be peeled up in one motion. In other cases, where the floor has been glued to plywood sheeting, which is then glued to the concrete, a more complex removal is required. By cutting across the surface of the flooring to make a hole, we can then take it apart by sections and dispose of them. No matter how your flooring was installed, our crews have the experience and training to remove them and the adhesive underneath. Any remaining sections that can’t be removed by the equipment are removed using hand tools to ensure that all sections of the old flooring and adhesive are removed. With angled tools in varying sizes, we can get into any corner to remove the old flooring.
Once all of the flooring and glue is removed, our crews go in with grinders to make the surface smooth and flat. Grinding gets rid of the patches of adhesive that may remain on the surface. This is essential to the renovation process, as a clean, flat concrete surface makes the process of laying a new floor more successful. The adhesive used to lay the new flooring needs a clean surface to form a bond that keeps the tile, wood or vinyl in place no matter how much foot traffic comes across them. If you have invested in expensive new flooring, making the installation successful is crucial to having a beautiful finished product. Removal of all the adhesive helps the new flooring to lay smoothly and also helps the new adhesive to form a permanent bond. Once all of the adhesive is removed, your flooring contractor will be able to come in and lay a perfectly even floor more efficiently than if you had attempted a DIY project.
After the work is completed, one of our five state of the art removal trucks will take the debris away and our crews will vacuum to remove any dust that remains. We leave your home clean and ready for new floors to be installed.
