The basis of any quality floor is the preparation that went into installing it.
Ground Floor can help you get the floor ready for installation. If you are installing the floor yourself or you have a contractor already selected to install the floor and just want to “clean it up” to install a new, we can help. If you are a demolition contractor that flooring removal is part of your scope, call us to help. We can quickly remove flooring, thin set, mortar, adhesive, and coatings with our fleet of ride on scrapers and grinders. It is critical to get the flooring prep right for the new install. Failure to properly prepare the floor can and will void the manufacturer’s warranty. Some floors require leveling or joint shaving which we can accomplish in a number of ways.
Floor Scraping And Demolition - Flooring Removal From Your Concrete Slab
Concrete Preparation For Installation:
When installing new flooring where there is existing flooring, complete removal of the previous flooring is highly recommended. Failure to remove the flooring can lead to warranty issues and life cycle problems. Our fleet of ride on floor removal scrapers can make quick work of the old flooring and remove carpet, vinyl, VCT. ceramic or natural stone tile. Depending on thickness, it has even been used for removing epoxy coatings and excessive paint build up.
Industrial Concrete Scraping Equipment:
Our industrial fleet includes several ride on floor scrapers and walk behind grinders. The floor scrapers do most of the heavy lifting. The grinders can remove coatings, adhesives and thinsets left over from the scraping process. We will handle all proper waste disposal. Even if you decide you don’t want to put new flooring in we can remove the old flooring, and cleanup the concrete.
Asbestos Product Removal:
We can remove and dispose of all flooring related products as long as they are not asbestos made. Asbestos fibers can be in the tile as well as the adhesive. If you believe you may have asbestos based products on your floor, we can help recommend an environmental remediation company. Adhesives, thinsets, and mortars left behind are removed with industrial grade concrete floor grinders.
