As your hardwood floors age, you might find that they don’t look as good in your home or business as they once did. The finish can fade and peel, leaving some floor boards a different color than others. Certain planks can become loose, leading to an embarrassing tripping hazard when family or customers come to your location. Some homeowners find that hardwood leaves the home’s interior looking cold and dusty, and they miss the warmth and finished look of carpeting. Whatever your reasons, if you want to get rid of hardwood flooring, Flooring Removal Services can help. Our licensed, insured crews can perform residential or commercial hardwood flooring removal anywhere in the South Florida area.

Removing a hardwood floor is labor intensive work, particularly for those who have no training, experience or tools. If you hire an inexperienced one man crew, or attempt to take on this project yourself, you run several risks, including:
- Creating damage to baseboards and trim items
- Leaving chunks of mortar or thin set in place
- Debris and dust piling up in the home
- Damage to flooring in adjoining rooms
In some cases, the hardwood flooring is glued to plywood surface, which is then stuck to the concrete underflooring surface. This helps to keep the hardwood surface in place, but it can make removal much harder. Luckily, our crews are equipped and ready to handle this type of hardwood flooring removal. We have the skills to take apart the flooring, beginning with cutting a hole in the surface to get the initial planks removed. Once the initial incision is made, we continue pulling the surface and attached plywood from the surface until it is totally gone. This can be a messy and complicated process, but thanks to our preparation and understanding of how to complete flooring removal, we ensure that it is handled quickly and without any delays.
Our Process of Hardwood Floor Removal
Our process of removing hardwood floors is simple. We begin by taking steps to protect your home by laying out plastic sheets and protective aluminum ramps. Our crews wear protective gear to minimze any risk of harm to them while working on your home. Next, we start working by removing the hardwood flooring with specialized flooring removal machinery. This powerful equipment , operated by our experienced team members, can remove the majority of the flooring surface as fast as possible. This leaves only small hard to reach sections. We use angled hand tools, outfitted with dust containment shields, to get rid of these parts. Once all of the wood is removed, there can be a large amount of thin set mortar left under the surface. This has to be removed in order to have another flooring surface put in place. We use grinders to make the surface smooth and leave a clean finish. With all the removal work done, our crews remove any debris created, vaccuum up any dust and scrub the air to get rid of any airborne dust. Thanks to our experience and equipment, we can complete this process in as little as 24 hours.
