When you choose Ceramic Tile Stripping it will get dusty so what we do first is remove everything that we could so we wouldn't have to clean it when we were done. Even though we are not going to reuse the tile, we will be careful because we wanted to put the tiles on free cycle or Craigslist so someone else might be able to use them. The only tools we use are an old flat tip screw driver; hammer and a box cutter for simple removal are arrow places.
The tiles that are offset from the wall about 1/2" with a mortar mix. The way that the mortar stays on the wall is a wire mesh that is attached to the wall with staples and nails. We start by cutting the bead of caulk around the top edge of the tile being careful not to cut to deep and into the drywall. Now the first tile off is the most critical so we were real careful about it. And just started the screwdriver back behind the tile and pried a little bit at a time at tile we could remove without damaging the wall or the tiles next to it. From that point it gets easier. We work a line straight down to the floor and then make the way around the bathroom.
The tank of the toilet was real close to the tile so it made it difficult to get the tiles off around it. The next thing was the vanity. Sometimes when they build a house they custom built the vanity and everything before they put up the tile so there are allot of things to cut around. When we got to the mirror we had to be real careful because the mirror was resting on top of the tile. Now at these narrow places we'd remove the mirror. There is nothing to get lucky on this part just the smart and professional job is employed.
Another nice thing about doing all the work with Quality Tiling is, you get to see how things are built, while the stripping process is carried out. We have a project engineer for a particular project to analyze on the built structures and which is the best way to get started. We won't leave anything that can cause the deterioration of tiles and water penetration while Tile Stripping in Brisbane. And based on your procurement and requirement, the bathroom tiling can also be carried out with a professional touch.
