Getting rid of ceramic tile floors might sound impossible, but with the right tools and equipment, it can be an easy process. Has your ceramic tile floor seen better days after years of being in place? Typically, ceramic tile flooring can do a few undesirable things over time. This is common with older tiles. Some of the biggest issues that can appear on your floor surface include:
- Cracks across the surface of the tile or corners breaking off
- Stained or damaged grout spots
- Tiles breaking away from the concrete subfloor, making them more susceptible to breakage
- Stains, dirty or dingy portions
- Dings and dents that take away from the look of the overall flooring
You might be thinking about trying to repair the tile first. However, this isn’t the best option. In fact, with a repair, you may only add a year to your flooring before you must completely replace. This means that you will want to get it completely removed with the help of our ceramic tile removal company to save both time and money in the long run.
Ceramic Tile removal is one of the most time-consuming tasks a homeowner or inexperienced contractor will face.

How Our Process of Flooring Removal Works
We start the removal process by using our specialized equipment to remove the ceramic tile. With the right machinery, we can remove most of the floor surface quickly. Next, we use hand tools to remove any pieces of flooring that remain. Our crews travel with angled and small tools, making it easy to get into corners and hard to reach spaces. With all the flooring gone, we can start getting rid of the mortar or thin set underneath.
Removing a floor surface properly means not only removing the tile, but also getting rid of the compounds used to make the ceramic floor tiles stick. In many cases, ceramic tile is installed using a heavy layer of mortar or thin set underneath. The installer does this to make the heavy ceramic tiles stay where they are laid. To complete the removal of your floor and leave it ready for installation of a new surface, we make sure this mortar or thin set is all gone. After the ceramic tile surface of your floor is removed, our teams work to get rid of this layer. We use chisels to break the bonding and remove this layer from the surface of the concrete subfloor. Any little patches that are still stuck on the concrete get removed by large grinders that leave the floor smooth. Grinding helps to clear away any mortar or thin set and leaves the area ready for installation of the new flooring.
With all the work complete, we clean away dust and debris, put large waste into a truck for recycling and take it away from your property. Once we leave, the process is complete and there is nothing more for you to do except choose your new flooring and have it installed.
