Tile Cracking? How to Remedy the Problem

Tile flooring is an attractive flooring choice in your home because of its aesthetics along with its durability. You may wonder why your durable flooring choice suddenly shows cracks. Before you can fix the problem, you first have to understand why the cracks occurred.

Why Your Tile Floor is Cracking

Your tile floor can last over 50 years with proper care, but it is susceptible to damage from things above and below the floor. We’ve outlined common reasons why your tile floor is cracking.

Heavy Items Delivering Sharp Blows

Many tile cracks occur in your kitchen because of the large appliances you need to cook, clean, and for storage. Appliances like fridges and dishwashers may be heavy, but tile is engineered to withstand their weight because it is evenly distributed in the four corners.

When you are moving appliances, you run the risk of delivering a sharp blow to your tile flooring. These drops cause serious damage to your tile, resulting in cracks and even deep chips. If you are having your appliances removed or installed, be sure that a professional is handling your appliances.

Concrete Cracking Below

Your tile may be perfectly safe on the outside, but underneath, a greater risk could lie. Concrete will naturally settle and crack along lines called “control joints.” Concrete will eventually crack as it settles, so control joints are the areas that are pre-planned to crack. If a tile is installed over these joints, cracking is inevitable. Tiles should be installed to line up with the joints, not on top of them.

The Cure Period for Concrete Was Too Short

Concrete is used to set a foundation. When it is poured, it contains a large amount of water. While this concrete “cures” or sits undisturbed, the water evaporates. While it dries out and water evaporates, the concrete will shrink. If concrete is still evaporating while tile flooring is installed, the concrete will shrink underneath, creating a gap. The tile can shift and move, increasing the risk of cracking.

Improper Installation

Tile can withstand moisture and the wear and tear your floor receives on a daily basis. However, tile can only serve you best if it is installed properly. Poor grouting, sealing, and installation can cause a variety of problems for your flooring. It won’t last nearly as long as it should and you’ll notice chips and cracks much sooner.

How to Fix Cracking Tile

So you have tiles that are chipped and cracked. Now what? It really depends on the number of cracked tiles and if the problem is structural or cosmetic to determine your next steps.

Only a Few Tiles Are Cracked

If you only notice a few tiles that are cracked, replacing them is a simple and easy option. It’s extremely important that you purchase 10% more tiles than what is needed for your installation in case cracks arise. It makes replacement much easier in times where your tiles are discontinued or hard to find. You can simply remove the problem tiles and replace them with new ones.

A Majority of Your Tiles Are Cracked

If a lot of your tile is cracked, it’s time to start from scratch. If you can’t live with seeing chipped, cracked, or broken tiles in your home, you’ll need to install new flooring. When it comes to floor removal, trust our experts to get the job done quickly, easily, and dust-free.

Cause of the Cracking

If cracking is merely from an accidental drop of furniture or normal wear and tear, you should be fine to replace the chipped tiles with new ones. If there are problems with the structure and installation of these tiles, you’ll need to start from scratch. Putting a band-aid on a problem that lies below the surface will only lead to the same result: more cracked tiles.

The Average Lifespan of Your Flooring

It’s only natural that your flooring will wear out over time. Maybe you installed flooring a long time ago or you’ve inherited an older home with flooring you didn’t choose, which begs the question: how do you know when you should replace your floor?

What Determines How Long Your Floor Will Last?

Aside from obvious stains and damage, your floor’s expiration date depends on the material it is made up of. Every material lasts for different lengths of time. However, the material used is just one indicator of how long your floor will hold up. Other factors include:

  • Quality of the material
  • If your flooring was properly installed
  • The amount of traffic that your floor experiences
  • If you are maintaining it regularly

The Lifespan of Common Flooring Materials

The lifespan of materials can’t be exactly predicted. Rather, there’s a range for each type of flooring’s lifespan. If you are properly maintaining your floor and minimizing the amount of damage it’s exposed to, your floor will tend to last longer.

Hardwood

Hardwood flooring can last a lifetime, but the glossy shine of original wood flooring will fade over the course of its life. You’ll notice fading after about 25 years. Hardwood floors, if installed properly, can last 100 years.

Living in Florida, we experience higher levels of humidity and moisture which make hardwood floors deteriorate quicker compared to other parts of the country. Hardwood floors will also need to be replaced if there is shifting or movement in the boards. This is a result of improper installation.

Laminate

Laminate floors mimic the look of real hardwood floors without the high price tag. Laminate flooring will last anywhere from 15 to 25 years, depending on the factors mentioned previously. These “floating floors” are cost-effective but will need to be replaced more often than true hardwood floors.

Vinyl

Another cost-effective flooring option is vinyl flooring. Vinyl floors will last anywhere from 10 to 20 years. Though its lifespan may be shorter when compared to more traditional options like hardwood and tile, vinyl is extremely durable and resilient in your home. Plus, vinyl flooring won’t warp from moisture, an added bonus in our humid state.

Tile

Tile flooring can last over 50 years with proper care. Glazed tile lasts longer because it is better protected against the wear and tear of daily life and it’s better protected against moisture, especially wet areas like kitchens and bathrooms.

Tile can prove to be harder to maintain because broken tiles will need to be replaced. Just one chipped tile throws off the entire look of the floor. If you are installing tile, it’s best to get at least 10% more tile than you actually need for installation so you have spare tiles in the event of chipping or damage.

Carpet

Last, but certainly not least, is carpet. Carpet is an attractive floor option because of its price point and it’s soft cushioned surface. Carpet will typically last anywhere from 5 years (for lower quality carpet) all the way up to 25 years before it needs replacing. Depending on the quality of the carpet, you’ll notice fraying and lackluster appearance when it’s finally time to part with your carpet.

Carpet absorbs the wear and tear it receives. This goes unnoticed on top, but the pad underneath will reveal the damage. With regular cleaning and vacuuming, your carpet will last its full lifespan. However, if you own pets, your carpet will need replacing sooner.

#4: A Better Installation

The highly efficient Speedy Floor Removal system achieves a perfectly level, superior sub-floor, ready for new installation.

Speedy knows floor removal is about so much more than just removing the existing flooring. Once the old flooring is removed, you are left with a variety of glues, residues, and other coatings from the previous flooring. Often several generations of flooring have used been in one area, leaving behind a whole time capsule of different adhesives! Placing new flooring on top of this mixture creates an uneven surface that looks bad, feels uneven underfoot, and seriously damage the new flooring over time.

We endeavor to address and work with every unforeseen circumstance that comes our way, never leaving you high and dry with a half-finished project.

8 Things to Consider Before Buying New Flooring

Before starting the floor removal process, you have to buy new flooring to replace your current flooring. Purchasing new flooring for your home can be an intimidating process. There are several considerations you need to think about when making this decision. Here are the eight most important things, according to Speedy Floor Removal, to keep in mind before buying new flooring.

Room Location and Use

Where is the room located? What is it used for? If the room is located where people will be coming and going from outside, you might want to think about hardwood flooring or tile because they are easier to clean and maintain. If you will be standing for a long period of time in that room, you may want to go a different direction other than tile, due to how uncomfortable it can be to stand on tile flooring for long periods of time.

Climate

Before choosing your new flooring, you should consider where you live and the climate. Wood can warp and buckle and carpet can mold in humid environments. In Florida, the best types of flooring for the climate are tile or laminate flooring. Engineered hardwood flooring is designed to better withstand the climate of Florida.

Coordination

Not only will you want to think about what colors, patterns, and textures appeal the most to you, but you’ll also want to think about what compliments your current decor. If you won’t be redecorating afterward, you will probably want to choose a flooring that coordinates with your current furniture and accessories in the room.

Floor Care

Different flooring requires different maintenance. You will need to factor in what kind of upkeep and cleaning. Will you need to refinish the flooring later? Will it require steaming? You will need to determine how much time you will have for the required upkeep before making a decision.

Allergies

If you or someone in your home has allergies, carpet flooring may not be the best option for you. Carpet can accumulate allergens like dust mites, pet dander, mold spores, and other potentially aggravating proteins. Tile and hardwood flooring collects fewer dust mites and allergens.

Installation

If you will be installing the new flooring yourself, you will need to know how to install the flooring you buy. If you choose to do the installation yourself, you will need to make sure you can identify and repair a faulty subfloor and know how to safely dispose of the old flooring. Some flooring may require professional removal.

Speedy Floor Removal can assist you in the floor removal process through our Speedy Assist program. Speedy Assist will provide you with industry-leading equipment and a highly trained expert so that you can get the job done quickly and efficiently!

Refinishing

If you currently have hardwood flooring, don’t be so hasty to rip them out before doing your research on your refinishing options. You may be able to preserve it with a new stain. Refinishing your current hardwood flooring can restore the wood’s original appearance and shine. You can even change its color or finish.

Additional Costs

Not only do you have to think about the cost of the new flooring you choose, but you also have to think about the cost of underlayment, delivery, and installation, as well as additional materials such as baseboards, stains, or adhesive. You should also factor in removal and disposal of your previous flooring.

 

Speedy Floor Removal removes all types of flooring and coverings, such as carpet, tile, and hardwood flooring for industrial, commercial, and residential facilities. We will prepare your surface by removing any epoxy, glue, oils, dust, and more in order for your flooring to look its best. We also will safely dispose of your old flooring when we are finished.

What’s So Bad About Tile Dust?

Not only is tile dust messy, it is also dangerous. Long-term exposure to tile dust can bring about a number of health issues. When renovating your home, you want to take as many precautions as possible to keep you and your family safe.

What is Dust?

Everyone has probably heard of dust, but do you really know what it is? More than half of the household dust is soil that has been brought into your home by shoes, bare feet, or airborne particles. The other half is an assortment of debris such as skin cells, food products, mold, kitchen grease, and more.

Dust also contains bacteria and fungi. The average American household contains up to 7,000 types of dust-related bacteria and 2,000 species of fungi. Your carpet alone can contain up to 200,000 bacteria per square inch. During the floor removal process, any of the bacteria or fungi trapped under the tiles can be released into the air with the tile dust.

Chemicals can be found in dust. Many popular construction materials, such as tile, contain a material called crystalline silica.

Materials which create crystalline silica dust that are found in your flooring include:

  • Quartz
  • Stone
  • Rock
  • Sand
  • Brick

The Dangers of Tile Dust

When the tile is broken apart and removed, crystalline silica can be ground down to microscopic particles and released into the air, creating dust that can lead to a variety of health complications. Crystalline silica is a lung carcinogen, meaning that constant exposure to this tile dust would cause serious lung problems.

According to the United States Department of Labor, “Silica dust is hazardous when very small (respirable) particles are inhaled. These respirable dust particles can penetrate deep into the lungs and cause disabling and sometimes fatal lung diseases, including silicosis and lung cancer, as well as kidney disease.”

Virtually Dustless Floor Removal

Whether you are removing tile, hardwood flooring, or carpet, the only way to have a dustless floor removal is to have the right equipment. With all of the dangers of dust inhalation, don’t take the risk. Call in the experts.

Speedy Floor Removal offers several floor removal packages that will leave your home free of dust. Speedy Dust Collection Systems collect almost one pound of dust per square foot, and our HEPA Certified Air Cleaners capture dust unseen to the eye. To learn more about our virtually dustless floor removal process, contact Speedy Floor Removal today.

Carpet vs. Hardwood Flooring

Hardwood flooring is becoming more popular in modern day homes, but carpet isn’t going out of fashion either. When making a flooring decision for your new home or home renovation project, there are several things to consider.

 

Carpet

Pros

Having carpet in your home not only keeps your feet warm, but it is also soft. There is nothing better than the feeling of carpet in the winter time. The variety of types of carpet are endless, allowing you to find the perfect match for your home.

Carpet allows some flexibility in looks. There are carpet types for every occasion, whether you want a formal look in your home or a more casual feel. It is also generally a cheaper option compared to wood and ceramic. If you are remodeling on a budget, this is a great choice.

If your family stomps around the house, carpet may be perfect for you as it can provide noise insulation. No more being disturbed by the pounding of feet on the ground. Carpet will absorb all the sound to create a quiet atmosphere.

Cons

When it comes to carpet, maintenance isn’t as easy as other types of flooring. It can easily become stained from a single spill, taking a deep cleaning to get out. Spills can also lead to odor, even after the stain has been removed. Professional cleaning is an option to get tough stains and smells out, but it will cost you a pretty penny.

Carpet also isn’t as long-lasting as most flooring options. If it is well maintained with frequent vacuuming and steam cleaned once a year, you can extend its life a little longer. However, good upkeep can’t save carpet from general wear and tear such as mats or seams showing.

Dust mites, allergens, and moisture can hide deep within your carpet and not be picked up by your vacuum. Allergens trapped in carpet are especially troubling for families with small children. If you or someone in your household has severe allergies, this may not be the ideal flooring for you.

 

Hardwood Flooring

Pros

Hardwood flooring is a great way to make a room look clean and simple. With a wide variety of options, hardwood flooring makes it easy to find the right kind and price for you. And if you want to spice it up later, you can put a fun rug down.

If you have allergies, hardwood flooring is a great option. Unlike carpet, hardwood gives allergens no place to hide. Simply cleaning your floors will get rid of any allergens.

Cleaning hardwood floors is much easier than cleaning carpet. However, they do need to be cleaned more often. You want to make sure to sweep or vacuum and mop them every week or so. They will last a lifetime if well taken care of.

Cons

Buying and installing hardwood flooring is a hefty upfront investment compared to other flooring options. Hardwood will need to be refinished from time to time in order to keep it looking fresh.

Unlike carpet, hard surface floors make every little sound detectable. You’ll be able to hear kids, pets, and anyone else in the house walking around.

In the winter, hardwood flooring can be cold on your feet. However, an easy fix can be wearing socks or putting down a rug.

 

The Decision

When deciding between carpet and hardwood flooring, you also need to take your lifestyle into account. Do you have children? Are your pets potty-trained? What is your budget? These answers, along with all of the information above, will allow you to make an informed decision on your brand new flooring.

If you are planning a home renovation project, let the professionals of Speedy Floor Removal help you. We can remove your flooring safely and quickly.

Tile Removal the Easy Way

How to Remove Tile Flooring at Home

So you want to remove your own tile? You watched a few shows on HGTV and feel like you can handle the job. Well, we’ll be honest with you. It’s not easy. However, with our guidance and powerful tools from Speedy Floor Removal, we can make tile removal as easy as it can be!

 

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.

Remove the Tile

For this part, you will need a hammer and a chisel. Before you can start popping up tiles, you will need to first break one apart with the hammer to get to the others. Once you have broken apart the first tile, you can then use the chisel to pry it up. Use the hammer and chisel to pop the rest of the tiles up by placing the chisel against the bottom edge of the tiles and using the hammer to apply pressure to pop the rest up.

If the flooring area you are removing it too large for this tedious task, you can use electric tools to for quicker, more efficient work.

Remove the Underlayment

The underlayment is whatever you find under your tile once you have pulled it all up.

This can include:

  • Cement
  • Plywood
  • Backer Board
  • Plywood
  • Or more tile…

In most flooring jobs, it is best to go ahead and remove the underlayment, as it could be concealing mold or water damage. It should almost always come up after removing the tile.

If there are screws attaching the underlayment to the floor, you can use a screw gun to remove them. Pry up the edges of the underlayment; this can be done with a roofing rake and a flat shovel.

Clean the Subfloor

It is important that your floor is properly prepped before the flooring installation. You will need to remove any adhesive and remaining screws. If there is any remaining thin set, you will need to go over the surface with a scraper. If there is any old thinset left behind, your new floor could have holes, cracks, and uneven surfaces.

It is very important that you do not begin installing your new flooring until the subfloor is completely flat and smooth.

3 Reasons to Remove Your Carpet

Are you vacuuming once a week and scrubbing your carpet with DIY floor cleaners and still not seeing a difference? Carpet can be a hassle to keep up with, especially with kids or animals in the house. The floor removal experts at Speedy Floor Removal has compiled three reasons you may think about removing your carpet.

Why You Should Remove Your Carpet

Extensive Cleaning

Accidents happen in life. People spill drinks, track in dirt with their shoes, drop food on the floor, and so on. Unfortunately, if any of this happens on carpet flooring, you will have a hard time getting the stains out.
Even dirt is hard to get out of carpets. Small dirt particles tend to hide deep in the carpet’s fibers which can only be reached by professional cleaning tools. However, even with a professional’s help, there will always be some areas that just can’t be reached.

Allergens

Carpet is like a magnet for dust mites, pet dander, dead skin particles, mold, and other allergens that may provoke allergic reactions. Carpet fibers then trap these allergens in hard to reach places that are hard to clean. For households with small children, this can be a big issue as children’s immune systems are more sensitive.

Old Age

Carpet has a shorter lifespan than most other types of flooring. It should be replaced approximately every eight to ten years. With proper maintenance, you may be able to extend the life of your carpet, but it will still need to be replaced at some point in time. You will know when it is time to replace it by the appearance, and sometimes even the smell.

Some signs could include:

  • Stains – There are stains on your carpet that no amount of cleaning has been able to fix
  • Wear and tear – Mattered carpet, tears, and significant wear
  • Smells – Lingering smells even after deep cleaning
  • Increased allergy symptoms – Older carpets catch and retain more allergens

Removing Your Carpet

If your carpet has seen better days and you are ready to remove it, Speedy Floor Removal is here to help. Removing your carpet can be a difficult task. Doing it yourself can be a long, painful process, especially if the carpet is glued down. Let the professionals at Speedy Floor Removal take the load off of you with our latest technology and specialized process. We will remove your flooring safely and quickly in homes and businesses throughout North Central Florida

Three Reasons Why Your Tile Floor is Uneven

Tile is a great flooring choice for many Floridians due to its durability and ease of cleaning. However, after a little wear and tear, homeowners may find that their tile floor is uneven. An uneven floor is not only noticeable, but it’s also dangerous. Children and adults of all ages are more likely to trip and fall due to an uneven floor. Uneven floors also allow dirt and moisture to enter below the tiles, causing damage and mold buildup.

Factors that Contribute to Uneven Tile Floors

If you find that your tile is uneven, whether it be right after the contractor leaves or years after your tile was installed, there are a few reasons why this could happen. We’ve outlined the top three common reasons you have uneven tile floors.

Epoxy

Epoxy is a high-strength adhesive used to glue down flooring. When replacing tile or carpet, this adhesive needs to be removed by special equipment before installing new flooring. In some instances, a contract will smooth over the old layer with a new layer of epoxy because of how difficult it can be to completely remove epoxy.

This can ultimately ruin your new flooring and cause unevenness throughout your home. Before your contractor installs your new flooring, ask him or her about the epoxy and its risk of damaging your floors.

Initial Installation

If the job was done right, all of the floor’s joints should be even and the edges of each tile should be nice and level. Uneven tiles are often referred to as “lipping.” Lipping can also lead to chipping of the tiles where the floor between tiles is uneven. Before you hire your installation contractor, check the web for reviews in your community to lower the risk of hiring someone unqualified for the job.

Water Damage

Ceramic floor tiles are not affected by standing water, but the grout between the tiles are susceptible to water damage. Sometimes it’s easy to detect flood damage. But other times, such as a slow leaking pipe, can be harder to detect and the water can damage the grout. This causes the tiles to become loose and uneven. Not only can it cause the tiles to shift, but if the water sits too long and goes unnoticed or untouched, it can cause mold or dark staining.

The Solution to Uneven Tile Flooring

Unfortunately, the best solution to correcting uneven tile flooring is by starting from scratch. Here are the proper steps to remove your flooring so the outcome is perfectly even floors.

  • Hire a floor removal contractor – trusting a floor removal company to expertly remove your tile flooring and prepare the surface below for new flooring.
  • Find a reliable floor installation contractor
  • Select your new flooring – new tile floor or switch to hardwood? Work with your local contractor to decide which floor is best for your needs.

Tile Removal and Surface Preparation with Speedy Floor Removal

Removing your tile floor is a timely, messy, and exhausting task. Let us do the hard work by removing your tile and eliminate your concerns of having an uneven surface underneath. Speedy Floor Removal not only provides tile removal services, but we also remove carpet, paint, hardwood flooring, and more! Contact us today to receive a free project estimate!
