Floor and Tile Removal Can be a Huge Undertaking. Follow These 3 Tips To Make it Easier
If you opt to carry out the floor and tile removal process yourself, there are numerous logistical factors you’ll need to take care of. These include:
- Scheduling the project during days and times when you’re free and/or requesting time off work (and other commitments) to make sure it gets done.
- Researching, cost-comparing, and purchasing all of the power tools and materials you’ll need to do the project.
- Enlisting the help of any friends who are available or experienced enough to help.
- Purchasing protective equipment so that you reduce your chances of getting hurt during the flooring change and the old flooring removal process.
Don’t Forget About Disposal
Many contractors take care of the actual construction, but not of the disposal process for all of the old flooring and ensuing debris. Don’t paint yourself into a corner by forgetting to make arrangements for this, as it can be surprisingly difficult to carry out.
Floor and tile removal isn’t just difficult; it can be dangerous. It involves transporting heavy, hard, and sharp materials out of your home, into a vehicle, and to an appropriate disposal site. This places both you in harm’s way and your property at risk of damage. We’re not saying this to be alarmist; we’re saying it because it’s an important reality to acknowledge as you gear up to begin your renovations.
Hire a Professional
By the time you’re disposing of construction materials, you’re likely to be tired and overwhelmed (even if you hired a contractor). Those aren’t the safest circumstances for a quick, efficient, and harmless removal. On top of that, organizing the removal itself is complicated: you’ll need to find and use a car that can handle all of the debris without damage (and preferably all at once, unless you want to make multiple trips to the disposal site). You’ll need protective equipment (and probably a decent amount of manpower) in order to safely transport the debris. You’ll also need to be as careful as possible in order to avoid injury to yourself or damage to your home and/or vehicle.
All in all, floor and tile removal is a difficult process, and we highly recommend leaving it to professionals who you can trust. In doing so, you’ll be able to focus on what matters most: enjoying your beautiful new floors.
