Before touching the tiles, we make sure to remove the room trimming first, as these can hinder a lot of movement. They’re along the walls of the room, so the area would be hard to reach if the edges are still covered. Moreover, removing these temporarily can reduce any risk of damaging them permanently.
After removing the trimming, our tilers will attempt to remove the tiles by chiselling its edges with a blunt hammer. Doing this will lift the tile, therefore detaching it from the floor. This method seems easy and doable to an ordinary person; however, the process definitely requires precision and accuracy to execute.
We avoid cracking or shattering the tiles at all costs as these can be very difficult to clean. Moreover, these can also damage the subfloor itself, which makes it complicated to install new tilesーyou’d have to repair the subfloor first before installing new tiles. This is not only time-consuming but also cost-inefficient.
More often than not, some clients prefer to install underlayment before the tiling process itself to give the tiles added grip. Underlayment would prevent the tiles from being dislocated or damaged, and a lot of our clients deem it worth the extra time and money. If you’ve previously installed these, we’ll need to remove them too before reinstalling your floor.
The whole process would be quite messy and dusty at first, and there may be small scrap tiles lying around the floor. It will be a hassle and overall bad experience for you if we keep it like that.

Formore, getting new tiles installed will also require a smooth and bare floor, so we’ll also smoothen out any bumps on the surface to prepare it for installation.
