Frequently Asked Questions
Do you need to remove the baseboard to remove my floor?
Not typically. If you don’t have plans to replace your baseboard, we can remove your flooring up to the baseboard. Just let us know what you want to do in advance.
What do you mean by Dustless?
Our removal process using our special tools is to control the dust using our system. We can collect up to 1 pound of dust per sq. ft. when removing tile and stone flooring. Imagine, doing it any other way, that dust will settle in and can be an issue for years.
Do you need to remove the shoe mold to remove my floor?
Yes. Shoe mold or quarter round must be removed so that your new floors after the demolition is done can be installed properly.
Is the dust a health hazard?
Yes. If fact, it’s Not Dust, it’s crystalline silica, a naturally occurring substance found in sand and stone. It is present in flooring products that are sourced from sand and stone, including tiles, glass, concrete and grout.
My cabinets are on top the flooring that needs to be removed, do my cabinets need to be removed?
No, we pay attention to detail and will protect the cabinets during the removal process and have many tools that cut or remove flooring up to the bottom of the cabinets so your new floor is installed properly. During the inspection, we will figure out a game plan.
How long will it take to remove my floors?
Every job is different so it varies as residential is typically more difficult than commercial, but to give you an idea, we can do up to 1,000 square foot of residential flooring in one day. Most of the time commercial properties take less time.
What do you do with the waste?
