Masonite Flooring Removal
Masonite is a building product used for a variety of purposes. Sometimes referred to as hardboard, Masonite is a dense, slick material manufactured in 48-by-96-inch sheets. Quarter-inch-thick Masonite is sometimes used as an overlay to smooth out particleboard before floor coverings are added. The resulting sandwich of materials is not ideal. It can squeak and adds too much flexibility, causing subsequent floor coverings to become problematic. If you’ve ripped up your existing floor coverings to find Masonite, it’s a good idea to remove it. The removal of the Masonite itself is not too complicated, although it can be very frustrating (Especially the staples!) and very labor intensive depending on what method of installation was used.
Laminate Flooring Removal
There are several ways to remove the laminate flooring. they are normally able to be pried up manually. But if the adhesive seeped down and glued the planks to the subfloor beneath it, you may have trouble. In this case, you can remove laminate flooring either by melting the glue or using a commercial floor stripper.
You can also use a manual scraper and pull up the flooring by hand. But this will be very labor-intensive.
Other methods our team sometimes has to use to remove laminate flooring include:
- Our team will use a heat gun to alternately pull up parts of flooring and melt the glue underneath until all the planks have been removed.
- Bring in a commercial motorized floor stripper with claws. The claws will pull up the planks. This can be expensive and will also ruin your laminate so you can’t reuse it.
Vinyl Flooring Removal
There are many different types of vinyl flooring ranging from thin domestic sheeting too much thicker industrial grade vinyl. The various types of vinyl will be laid in various ways depending on the sub-floor.
Concrete subfloor: a topping or feather coat is applied to ensure the slab is smooth. Then the vinyl is glued down to the topping ensuring a hard bonded finish.
Timber subfloor: the vinyl may be glued directly to the timber flooring or laid on a Masonite underlay. Some vinyl may even be loose laid over timber flooring.
Old vinyl may contain Asbestos, this vinyl needs to be tested prior to removal.
Vinyl removal involves using a specially designed blade and jackhammer to separate the floor covering from the subfloor. Once the vinyl is lifted off concrete a glue resin will be left this needs to be ground off using a specialized diamond concrete grinder. When removed off timber, the timber subfloor will need to be sanded using a timber sander to remove the vinyl glue.
Cork Flooring Removal
Cork removal requires a commercial floor stripper to separate the floor covering from the subfloor.
While cork itself is soft and in most cases easily lifted, the adhesive is quite hard and well bonded to the subfloor. If laid on concrete, the adhesive will need to be ground off the slab to allow for reinstallation of a new floor covering.
If however, the cork is laid on a timber subfloor, then both the cork and underlay will need to be removed. Underlay is normally a thin layer of Masonite sheeting nailed or stapled to the subfloor. Once this is completed, all the nails holding the underlay on subfloor will also need to be removed.
Magnesite Flooring Removal
Sydney’s older apartment developments also have a topping of magnesite on concrete flooring that displays a smooth finish. Long-term exposure to moisture that occurs in household kitchens, bathrooms or laundries, balconies as well as windows, can lead to the magnesite releasing harmful chlorides into the material and damages the concrete and steel, causing corrosion and the material to disintegrate, crack and lump.
When this occurs a few decades after installation, magnesite must be removed and the damaged areas treated or removed also and re-built.
Carpet Removal Sydney also offers magnesite flooring removal services to ensure your home or business area is repaired of any issues and that the effect of magnesite damage is no longer present.
Our professionals are experts in magnesite flooring removal, so they have the expertise and skills to remove magnesite toppings from concrete floors and deal with the damage appropriately in a safe and efficient manner.
