Construction companies and shopfitting companies often require the removal of floor tiles, carpet or vinyl from concrete floors. Once the covering is removed, the concrete floor then needs to be grinded to remove the adhesive.
Floor tile and floor tile adhesive removal
We can remove floor tiles from a concrete floor with jack hammers and other floor stripping machines. Once all the tiles are removed and placed in a rubbish skip, we then use concrete floor grinding machines to grind the tile adhesive off the concrete floor surface. This will leave a blank concrete floor ready for a new surface to be applied. This type of work is usually done before applying a new concrete floor surface or when ending a retail tenancy in a shopping centre. Shopping centres commonly require a shop to be left as a bare shell.
Carpet and carpet floor adhesive removal
We can remove carpet from a concrete floor with a range of tools and machines depending the size of the carpeted area. Once the carpet is removed and disposed of, we use concrete grinding machines to remove the carpet adhesive from the concrete floor surface. This will leave a bare concrete floor, ready for new carpet or a different concrete surface apply to the floor area.
Vinyl floor and vinyl floor adhesive removal
We can remove vinyl tiles, vinyl planks and vinyl sheet flooring from a concrete floor with a range of different tools and machines depending on the size of the floor area. For small areas we commonly use modified jackhammers and hammer drills to remove the vinyl. For larger areas we commonly use a ride-on floor stripping machine to remove the vinyl. To remove the vinyl adhesive from the floor we use concrete grinding machines with solvent chemicals and abrasives to remove the vinyl adhesive from the concrete floor surface. Once completed the concrete floor will then be ready for a new vinyl covering or a new concrete floor concept.
