Steps to DIY
Remove the Baseboards and Trim
The first step to removing tile is first removing the baseboards and trim. While removing, make sure to take care so that they can be reinstalled once the new flooring is installed. Gently remove them with a thin pry bar. Make sure to remove any appliances in the room and built-in furniture, like cabinets.
Without the proper equipment, there will be dust involved in the process. You will want to cover any vents with painter’s tape and plastic to keep any dust from entering the ventilation system.
