Is Concrete Grinding Required After Floorboard Removal?

Yes, if you have a CONCRETE subfloor, your Floorboards are most likely glued down. Once our team has removed your Floorboards, you will see a glue residue that will need to be ground off your concrete using a Concrete Grinder. We need to grind your concrete to remove any remaining residue to allow the successful reinstallation of a new flooring system, coating, or floor levelling compound.

Is There Magnesite Flooring In Your Property?

If your home was built in the 1920s 1980s, likely, your home (Especially unit blocks in NSW) could potentially have Magnesite Flooring. Magnesite is present below a flooring system such as carpet. Magnesite is a product used as a noise preventative and a Floor Levelling agent.

Magnesite Flooring absorbs moisture (particularly in areas prone to moisture such as external walls, doorways, around shower recesses, near windows, laundries, etc.) Unfortunately, once Magnesite Flooring absorbs moisture, it starts a chemical reaction that will cause Concrete Cancer over long periods of time.

Because your Magnesite Flooring was laid 40 – 100 years ago, it has likely absorbed moisture over the many decades that it has been trapped under your flooring system, and it has most likely started to break down and lose its strength, making it an unsuitable Floor Levelling product that it once was, as well as very hollow, which destroys its soundproofing.

The best thing you can do to prevent further damage to your property and the concrete slab is to remove it ASAP. Magnesite Flooring consists of Magnesium Oxychloride, which may contain ASBESTOS.

Since it is a health hazard and a major safety risk in NSW, if you remove your flooring system and find out there is Magnesite under it.

YOU MUST remove your Magnesite Flooring for the safety of you and everyone else in your unit block.

Strata may pay to remove your Magnesite Flooring as it is considered “Common property”. Magnesite Flooring can cause Concrete Cancer, which is a major risk to everyone’s safety as well as the successful reinstallation of your new flooring system.

NO company will give you any form of warranty or insurance on any flooring installation job on a magnesite floor, which is another reason why it should always be removed.

Is Floorboard Removal Dangerous?

Yes, Floorboard Removal is dangerous.

Floorboard Removal without the correct PPE and power tools/equipment will create a harmful silica dust environment. It’s also possible to be injured by tools as well as injured from the Floorboard Removal process.

– SERIOUS INJURIES: Sometimes, Tiny pieces of Concrete or Splinters of wood can go flying in the air during the Floorboard Removal process. Pieces of concrete or splinters of wood can accidentally hit your eye, causing serious damage, if not blindness. The tools required to perform this task are also dangerous to use for people who are not highly skilled in using these tools.

– ACCIDENTAL INJURIES: It’s easy to look up a guide on what tools to use, but injuries often occur from a lack of knowledge of how to use these tools safely.

– PERMANENT LUNG DAMAGE: Inhaling dangerous silica dust by not using the correct PPE and Dust Extractors can be deadly.

The longer silicosis goes without treatment, the more likely it is to develop a complication. Because the disease affects the immune system, silicosis patients are vulnerable to developing tuberculosis, lung cancer, COPD, and kidney disease.

    • Lung Cancer.
    • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
    • Kidney Disease.
    • Autoimmune Disease.

Breathing in very small (“respirable”) crystalline silica particles causes multiple diseases, including silicosis, an incurable lung disease that leads to disability and death. Respirable crystalline silica also causes lung cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and kidney disease.

How Do I Work Out How Much My Job Will Cost?

How To Use A Square Metre CalculatorA square metre calculator is very simple to use. To calculate square meters, you need to know the length and width of each area (Floor plans or manual measuring can help with this). This is also referred to as the area of the shape; most commonly, it’s a simple square or rectangle, but for more advanced areas, it can be harder and different shapes.

Square metres are calculated by Length x Width
For example 1 x 1 = 1 square metre
For example 7 x 4 = 28 square metres
For example 14 x 1 = 14 Square Metres

Or you can simply email Carpet Removal Sydney your “Floor Plan” to make it easier for you. We will calculate the square metres for you, but sometimes a Floor Plan may be missing measurements (most commonly the hallways), so those may need to be manually measured, or we may need to “guess” the rough measurement of that area.
Here is an example of a floor plan sent to us with “Missing Measurements.”

How to Calculate Square Meters

You might find yourself needing the area of a room or other space in square meters for a flooring, renovation, or landscaping project. To obtain such a measurement, you can measure the area of the space in square meters in a few simple steps. Follow along to learn how to calculate it yourself, or simply use the calculator above.

Step One: Measure Length and Width

In order to calculate the area of a space, you must know its dimensions. For example, if the shape of the space is a square or rectangle, then start by measuring the length and width of the space in meters using a tape measure or other measuring tool.

If your measurements are in another unit of measure, centimetres, for example, then you can either convert them to meters first, or you can find the area in another unit and convert them to square meters. We have some simple area conversion utilities, or you can convert yourself. If your length measurements are
