- Cleaner and faster tile removal means less time to remove your old tile floors.
- You can stay in the house, so you save $$'s because you don't have to stay at a motel.
- Dust-B-Gone works with many flooring companies across the valley allowing for seamless removal and installation of new flooring.
What We Do...........
- Virtually dust free removal of floor tile and thinset from concrete floors, including ceramic and porcelain tiles, satillo, travertine, slate and other natural stone tiles, leaving your floors ready to accept most new floor coverings.
- Draping, when necessary, to protect sensitive and/or large items that need to be moved.
- Disposal of tile and thinset at approved sites around the metropolitan area.
- Grinding down minor floor deflections due to slab cracks that have heaved.
- Clean up of all work areas. We won't leave you in the dust!
- Moving of furniture/appliances/fixtures is available at a modest additional charge.
The Down & Dirty of Tile Removal Is...........
- This is a down on your knees hard and messy business that will create a very dusty environment if not properly controlled.
- There is about a pound of thinset for every square foot of tile removed, leaving the potential for hundreds of pounds of silica dust to be captured.
- Shop-vacs, even those with Hepa filters, are not designed to capture the volume of silica dust created during tile removal.
- Very, very few companies specialize in virtually dust free tile removal. The technology is expensive, but the results are impressive.
- Virtually dust free tile removal is a very affordable option when you consider all the hidden charges for removal, disposal, cleaning, and not being able to live in your house until the job is completed.
We won't leave you in the dust!
What We Use...........
- HEPA rated dust filtration systems that are capable of capturing particles as small as .3 microns (pollen, mold, bacteria, asbestos). These systems are state-of-the-art. Most importantly, these systems incorporate a self-cleaning technology that keeps the filters as efficient at the end of the job as when the job started.
- HEPA systems with incredible suction rates of 300 to 690 cubic feet of air per minute; suction so powerful that dust particles are captured before they get into the air. HEPA stands for High-Efficiency Particulate Arrestance. To qualify as HEPA by US government standards, an air filter must remove (from the air that passes through) 99.97% of particles that have a size of 0.3 micron.
- Commercially rated equipment that can withstand the rigors of removing both tile and thinset.
- Diamond coated floor grinding blades that make quick work of stubborn thinset.
Health & Environmental Concerns...........
- Your health is important to us. Tile floors and thinset contain silica. The process of tile removal releases ultra-fine particles of cement dust into the air, which can be easily breathed in, potentially causing asthma flareups and, potentially, silicosis or lung cancer. Silicosis is a disease from breathing in crystalline silica dust which causes a thickening and scarring of lung tissue. OSHA (U.S. Department of Labor, Occupational &Safety Health Administration) ruling on silica can be found at https://www.osha.gov/silica/. Our HEPA systems dramatically reduces exposure to silica dust.
- Your house is also important to us. Tile removal without use of the above mentioned technologies will release large volumes of silica dust into your house. Conventional draping alone will not prevent dust from covering everything in its path. This means dust inside cabinets, on dishes, clothes, etc. More importantly, unsealed heating and cooling systems can suck up this dust and contaminate the ducts and A/C evaporative coils, which will require expensive cleaning.
