How do you remove a tile floor?

The most effective way to remove a tile floor is to use a demolition hammer. With the right chisel, you ensure that you carefully cut out/vibrate the tiles one by one. After removing the tiles, there may still be adhesive residues stuck to the surface. You can remove this by checking the floor again with a demolition hammer and a less aggressive chisel. If you cannot remove the adhesive residue or the floor is damaged too much, you can choose to leave the floor leveling or sanding.

Remove ceramic tile floor

A ceramic tile floor consists of a mix of sand and clay. These types of floor tiles are very popular and we therefore often encounter them. A ceramic tile floor is always glued to the subfloor. Removing a Ceramic tile floor requires good tools and perseverance. The ceramic tiles can not only be securely fixed, but are also heavy in weight. A floor of approximately 50 m2 can easily weigh around 1000 kilos.

Remove natural stone tile floor

A natural stone tile floor already tells you what it consists of. Stone from nature. Natural stone tiles are extracted from various quarries around the world. These tiles are glued to the subfloor using a cement mortar. Removing natural stone tiles is therefore a tough job. The weight of the stones is high, so it requires some effort to remove the floor.

Remove travertine tile floor

A travertine tile floor, like all other types of tile floors, is best removed with a demolition hammer. These types of tiles mainly consist of lime. Travertine has a coarse structure and shows small holes. Travertine tiles can be used both indoors and outdoors.

A tile remove floor can be difficult. Because flagstones are much thinner than other types of tiles, they tend to break more quickly. Removing these floors may take a little longer because the tiles will not come off completely. Unlike other types of floor tiles, tiles are much lighter in weight. Moving and disposing of the floor once it has been removed will therefore be a little easier.

Level the floor after removing the tile floor

It often happens that after removing a tile floor, the floor needs to be leveled. This may be because the floor is damaged too much and it needs to be smooth for the new floor or for milling in preparation for underfloor heating. Because tile floors are often glued with cement mortar, this ensures that the glue bonds with the substrate. When removing the floor, the glue can remain stuck or pull pieces of the floor along with it. Leveling ensures that your floor becomes strong and beautifully smooth again.

removing tile floor with underfloor heating

A tiled floor with underfloor heating must be removed with extra care. The underfloor heating pipes can be located up to a few millimeters under the floor. Using a demolition hammer incorrectly can lead to cutting too deep into the floor with the chisel, which can cause damaged water pipes. The consequences of this can be very serious. We therefore definitely recommend having these types of floors removed by a specialized company such as ZSM Woningontruiming.
