Removing Floor Tiles Is Easier and More Cost-Effective Than Homeowners Think
Bluestone tile expert Edwards Pavers reveals the simple way homeowners can remove their own floor tiles at home.
MELBOURNE, Australia, Oct. 31, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Renovating a home and updating the decor can be a very exciting time for homeowners, but the costs tend to add up quickly. Edwards Pavers, Australia’s premier destination for blue stone pavers, urges renovators not to shy away from DIY projects, which can save a lot of money and time. For novice renovators, stone experts recommend starting with a simple task, like removing tile. They share their top tips for removing tile at home.
Edwards Pavers explains that all a renovator will need to remove existing tiles are safety glasses, safety gloves, a dust mask, a scraper, a hammer and mallet, dust cloths and a masonry chisel. Most homeowners already have plenty of these items at home, but items they don’t have can be purchased cheaply at a hardware store or online marketplace like Amazon.
Before starting the tile removal process, Edwards Pavers reminds renovators to cover surfaces or furniture they don’t want dusty and to cover arms, hands, legs and feet. The best place to start removing tiles is with any tiles that are already loose or cracked; once the first tile is removed, tearing the remaining tiles will be much easier. Simply place the chisel under the tile and use the mallet to strike the end of the chisel until the tile lifts. Once the tiles have all been lifted, remove any remaining tile adhesive from the floor using the chisel. Finally, sweep or vacuum dust to prepare the floor for laying new tiles.
To find the perfect new tiles, Edwards Pavers invites renovators to view their range of natural stone tiles – their customer service team can offer expert advice on the best types of tile for any room or outdoor space.
