Thompson Tile, the dust free tile removal experts, welcomes you to our new site. The main thing we want to stress right off the bat, is that the technology for removing tile has definitely evolved in the last ten years.
Many companies offer to show you how they removed tile from either homes or businesses, but what they can’t show you is how much dust they leave behind.
Also, they just show you the easy jobs, not the difficult ones, so you are not getting the full picture.
Traditionally, most companies use Hepa filters, which, although they remove 98% of dust, still leave 2% behind. How much is 2%? Imagine a 1000 SQ FT job, lets’ say there ends up being about 50 pounds of dust that wasn’t collected by the Hepa filters, who exactly is supposed to pick up the dust left behind? Exactly, either the homeowner, or the company that removes the tile.
What about the thin set? Who removes that? Does your tile removal company charge extra for that service or is it included? Also, are they kicking up dust when they remove thin set? These are good questions that you should ask whoever you call, before you settle on any particular company.
