– The Customer acknowledges that Carpet Removal Sydney is unable to ascertain the quality or type of subfloor or base underneath the flooring pertaining to the Services. As a result, in the event Carpet Removal Sydney finds that there is more than one layer of flooring to be removed, the original quoted price shall be subject to a variation. Further, the customer shall be liable for the actual cost of removing the flooring and any additional layers.

– Customers must give Carpet Removal Sydney 5 days notice if intending to alter or cancel the date of their job. Failure to notify us will result in a $250 charge.
– Prices may vary slightly compared to what we advertise on our website. (Example: If we are grinding 20 square meters of concrete there may be additional charges or a minimum charge fee due to how small the job is, otherwise there is no profit to be made from the job after paying labour, disposal of waste, tax, GST, Insurances, advertising, etc).
For more information on our minimum job charge please visit: https://www.carpetremovalsydney.com.au/minimum-job-charge-explained/
– Extras and accessories not included in the original quotation will also result in additional charges. (Such as, but not limited to: our team arriving at the job and there is furniture when the job has been quoted without furniture charges, as well as wardrobes or stairs that need to be removed or concrete that needs to be ground that has not been added to the original quote will result in extra charges to the customer). Extras and accessories not included in the original quotation will also result in additional charges.
– Any estimate or quote given over the telephone, email, text when the site has not been inspected/measured by our team is based on the assumption that the Customer has accurately measured the area which Carpet Removal Sydney is required to strip. Carpet Removal Sydney shall be entitled to treat any inaccurate measurements by the Customer as a variation and reserves the right to charge the Customer accordingly.
– If you fail to provide electricity for our team and we cannot work due to an unexpected outage, a generator overheating or not working you will be charged additional fees for the time that we cannot work.
– If discussed in a quote that you need to provide a skip bin, generator etc and you fail to do so you will be charged additional fees.
– If we have to temporarily stop working due to on-site issues or requests by you, you will be charged additional fees.
– If we have to stop working on-site during work hours that you approved us to work in due to noise complaints, weather etc you will be charged additional fees.
– If you are responsible for transporting our equipment, machinery, and tools from one section of the worksite to another via forklift, crane, truck, etc and they break down causing delays in our work while you fix your forklift, crane, truck, etc you will be charged additional fees.
– Once a quote is finalized and accepted by the customer we cannot lower the price. If we arrive at the site and you have incorrectly measured how many square meters there are or have removed some yourself we will not lower the price. Once a quote is locked in and accepted by the customer this price is not up for negotiation and must be paid by the customer. Some jobs are quicker than others and we do not pay our labourers an hourly rate, we pay them per job, so even if your job was completed faster or easier than you would have expected that does not mean you will receive a discount.
– Unexpected multi-layer flooring systems will result in additional charges (For example if we have quoted to remove 1 layer of vinyl, but once we start the job we realise that there are 2 or 3 layers of vinyl. Then, unfortunately, you will face additional charges to remove the additional layers and to dispose of the additional waste). If you do not want to pay the additional charges and do not want our team to proceed with the job after the unexpected multi-layer flooring system has been revealed. A call-out fee charge will apply of $500 + a full day’s charges for labour and any machinery hired. Similar situations may include but not limited to (Tiles that have unexpected underlay such as masonite, chipboard, asbestos glues. Or parquet floorboards that may also have masonite and chipboard underlays underneath them)
– Additional charges may be charged to the customer if the subfloor needs to be scrapped at $150 / per hour (This charge may be higher or lower depending on the severity of the scraping that is needed and how strong the glue is or how many staples/nails/screws there are. We will always try our hardest to achieve the best results possible for our clients, but several factors such as what we are scraping and off what subfloor will be the deciding factor in how much can be removed.
– This also includes things like the removal of hundreds of staples or nails from a wooden floor. It should also be noted that we will always try our best to remove as much of the flooring system/underlay as physically possible without causing damage to your subfloor. but minor damage may occur (for example scraping staples off floorboards may leave scratch marks that need to be sanded away). It should also be noted that we cannot guarantee results, we may only be able to get a percentage of it off if a strong glue has been used. This may result in you needing to hire a floor sander to finish removing the underlay/flooring system in areas that had too much glue for us to remove without causing severe damage to your floor.
– All furniture and personal items should be removed from the area prior to our team arriving unless otherwise stated on the original order. Failure to do so will result in extra charges for moving the furniture while our team removes your flooring system. Extras and accessories not included in the original quotation will also result in additional charges.
– Carpet Removal Sydney will only move/replace the furniture that is stated in the quote form that a customer cannot move such as large items like bookshelves, couches, tables, TVs, etc. (Please note: These large items should still be emptied of their contents to make them as light as possible for our staff to move.
– Always ensure the books have been taken out of the bookshelves, the draws out of a wardrobe, any crystal glassware out of the cabinet and disconnect all cables from electronics such as TVs. Electronics should always be disconnected to reduce the chance of any accidents happening such as tripping on a cable while it is being moved. It is not up to our staff to disconnect and reconnect your electrical appliances, no “Set-top boxes, Foxtel Boxes, etc.” should be left connected to the TVs as it will hinder our team from moving the TV unit).
– Otherwise, any extra heavy items or rooms not cleared properly for our staff will increase the furniture removal/replacing cost at the customer’s expense. Also, any accidental damage that was done to any items that should have been moved by the customer, our team cannot be held liable for. Small items like lamps, kids’ toys, glassware in display cabinets, photo frames, computer-related equipment on desks such as computer monitors, speakers or small objects on the floor will not be moved by our staff and should be cleared by the customer before the arrival of our team. Our team is only being paid to move large furniture related items, we are not being paid to disconnect your electrical devices such as computers on desks and TV’s from the wall or move small things such as lamps and decoration pieces, as an example, that the customer can easily move before our team arrives at the job).
Cancellations, Quote Changes, Notice Time, Strata, Stand Down Time, Labour Hire, ETC
– If you request our workers to finish earlier than the work hours we set (for example: we said we would need 9:00 am – 5:00 pm to finish the job) but you need to leave the job for an emergency or any other reasons (such as neighbours complaining about noise forcing us to stop working) and are requesting our workers to cease work and to come back on another day to finish the job there will be additional charges and fees. Such as a second-day labour fee and the cost of any tools needed to complete the job such as the cost to re-hire jackhammers and a truck.
– If we arrive at the site and the customer cancels their job due to unexpected circumstances the customer will be charged a $300 charge per labourer on-site.
– If you request our labourers to stop working for any reason during the work hours agreed, this will increase the time that your job will take. Due to that fact, it will increase our costs by paying our labourers as well as our equipment hire fees. Due to any unexpected “stand downtime” that you may request. These charges will be added to your invoice (These charges may include, a second day’s labour fee, a rehire of equipment fee, ETC).
– If our labourers have to stop working on-site during work hours that you approved us to work in due to noise complaints, weather etc. You will be charged stand downtime fees @ $45/per hour (per labourer on-site)
– You are required by Strata Laws NSW to inform your strata and get approval before our team comes into your property to remove your flooring or to do any concrete grinding service. This is not our responsibility. You will be charged a full call-out fee ($250), as well as a full day’s labour fee (per Labourer on-site and any equipment hire costs for your job if we are forced to stop work during the day from 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM due to you not informing your local strata and/or neighbours. You should ALWAYS respect your strata and neighbours by informing them of when work will be commencing by giving them 7 days’ notice after approval. As well as putting up a notice on your notice board if strata haven’t for you already. Additional charges and fees will apply to your work order for our labourers to come out to your job on a new day to ensure profit margins are met.
– It is ALWAYS the customer’s responsibility when booking our services to let EVERYONE know that there will be LOUD NOISE throughout the day. (This includes neighbours, strata, building managers/owners etc.) Carpet Removal Sydney will not take ANY responsibility for noise complaints about the duration of our work. This is extremely important on every job as we will be using high powered jackhammers, concrete grinders, vinyl strippers etc. Demolition work will create a large amount of noise and if we are forced to stop work due to noise complaints because you failed to notify them then you will be charged a full days labour as well as any additional charges for things such as travel time, equipment hire costs etc.
– Whilst the Labourer remains an employee of Carpet Removal Sydney they shall perform the Services in accordance with the Customer’s instructions. As such Carpet Removal Sydney shall not be liable for any actions of the Labourer in following the Customer’s instructions.
– Ensure your Carpet Removal Sydney crew have free access to the work area. You must remove all furniture & appliances from your floor area & benchtops. All reasonable care will be taken but we will not be liable for damage to any items left in or around the work area (This includes things such as fridges, dishwashing machines, etc.)
– The client must put up some form of strong protection against any glass that our team is working nearby while removing flooring systems such as tiles. As there is a small chance that small fragments of the tiles could potentially not be sucked up by our commercial dust extraction units and cause potential damage to nearby glass that we are working near. To prevent this the client MUST put up strong temporary protection such as chipboard/masonite/plywood sheeting which can be purchased from a place like Bunnings and installed up against the glass with painters tape to protect any potential accidental damage as small fragments of tiles may chip or even shatter the glass that is not sucked up by our dust extractors that are connected to our jackhammers. This includes but is not limited too (doors, windows, sliding doors, picture frames, wall-mounted TVs, lights, or anything else in your work-site that is glass that may be potentially damaged by small fragments of a shattered flooring system escaping our dust extraction units) Our team will always try as hard as we can to avoid any accidental damage at all costs. Carpet Removal Sydney is not liable for the damage by you failing to do so.
– The condition of your concrete slab after the flooring removal process will depend on the original slab condition before the flooring was laid and how hard or soft your slab is. If you have a soft slab there may be holes/grooves and marks from removing your flooring. Any repairs to the subfloor are the responsibility of the client. (This is due to the “MPA STRENGTH” of your concrete slab, every slab has a different MPA STRENGTH, which means when our jackhammer blade hits your concrete slab, if your concrete slab has a HIGH MPA STRENGTH it will NOT dent your slab, if your slab was poured poorly and did not cure well, it will have a LOW MPA STRENGTH, causing dents to occur when our jackhammer blade hits your concrete slab) Carpet Removal Sydney will not be liable for this damage as it is impossible for us to predict or prevent.
– The final condition of a timber/wooden subfloor after flooring removal depends on how well the flooring is stuck down and the actual condition of the subfloor. Timber subfloors will be damaged and marked by the removal of nails and glue. All care is taken during the removal process, however, marks and scratches to the timber subfloor can not be avoided in some areas. If the subfloor is pine or chipboard, there may be major damage and holes to the subfloor as a result of removing directly stuck down flooring. Any repairs required to the subfloor is the responsibility of the client.
– All care but no responsibility can be accepted for minor damage to decorations, paintwork, furniture, tiles, etc. No responsibility accepted for damage to telephone wires, computer cabling or stereo equipment relocation and/or reassembly. It is illegal to run power cables under the carpet.
– pipes may be embedded in your concrete slab. However, the slab thickness must be increased by 25mm (This is the Australian standard) and the mesh increased to the next size up. (Refrence: “Pipes Under Slabs“) If a pipe is NOT 25mm deep in your concrete slab, it is most likely “old pipe work” from around the 1920 – 1980s, Carpet Removal Sydney will not be held liable for any old pipe work that is accidentally “struck, hit, grinded, broken, etc) by any of our tools, if it did not meet the Australian guidelines of being 25mm deep in your concrete slab. As this would have been impossible for us to predict or prevent. Therefor Carpet Removal Sydney will not be liable for any accidental damage that may occur.
– The act of stripping the flooring may cause damage to the base or the subfloor, where that subfloor is inadequate for any reason. As a result, Carpet Removal Sydney may need to cease work until certain other works or repairs are carried out. Carpet Removal Sydney will not be liable for the cost of such repairs or additional works, or for any damage that is caused to the subfloor as a result of inadequacies of any kind in the subfloor.
– All care but no responsibility will be accepted for any damage to walls behind the scotia and skirting boards during the removal process by our team. There may be accidental damage while our team removes scotia or skirting boards from your property as often they have been incorrectly installed or not done by a professional, as well as having extremely long nails to hold them in to dry walls while removing scotia and skirting boards from drywalls there will almost always be minor damage. If you have solid walls there will likely be less damage. Our team will always try as hard as we can to avoid any accidental damage at all costs. Carpet Removal Sydney is not liable for the damage.
– All care but no responsibility can be accepted for minor damage to subfloors. Subfloors may accidentally get minor damage while we scrape thousands of staples, nails, tacks, glue, etc off them, or just simply while we remove tiles off fragile old floorboards that are decades old.
– We cannot guarantee what your concrete slab condition will be after any of our flooring removal services. Your concrete subfloor condition will depend on the original slab condition before the flooring was laid and how hard or soft your slab is. If you have a soft slab there may be holes/grooves and marks from removing your flooring. Any repairs to the subfloor will be at the owner’s expense and Carpet Removal Sydney will not be liable.
– Our workers do everything they can to protect your property, belongings and home at all times. When tiles meet tiles or timber flooring meets tiles, Carpet Removal Sydney cannot be held responsible in any form or any way for replacement or damage to timber and tiles, due to the large equipment that we use such as jackhammers and concrete grinders. We take all due care but accidents happen which are unpredictable. Often areas, where tiles meet other tiles can be incredibly hard to remove as the section of tiles not being removed, may be accidentally damaged due to vibrations from the jackhammer even if we don’t touch it and stay clear of it as the glue/cement is often decades old and the vibrations will disturb it.
– Tiles are finicky and unpredictable, sometimes it just doesn’t matter how gentle you are with the surrounding tiles in the removal process, they could still just break. We take all care possible but we cannot be held liable for any damage to surrounding tiles during the removal process.
– When doing demolition work, it is important that our workplace is clear, other tradespeople are not in our way on-site or working in our area (which is especially important if you have people like painters/plasterers there, which is strongly advised against)
– Due to magnesite flooring, concrete cancer forms throughout the concrete slab destroying the structural integrity of the concrete slab over decades and decades. While we are removing your magnesite flooring with jackhammers although all care is always taken, vibrations may accidentally disturb it which can result in unexpected damage to the floor of the unit’s concrete slab or even the roof of the unit’s concrete slab beneath due to structural damage in the concrete slab due to vibrations from the jackhammer. This is impossible to predict and impossible to avoid, although extremely rarely happens.
– The Customer shall inspect the Services on completion of their job and shall within two (2) days of completion (time being of the essence) notify Carpet Removal Sydney of any alleged defect, shortage in quantity, damage or failure to comply with the description or quotation. The Customer shall afford Carpet Removal Sydney an opportunity to inspect the Services within a reasonable time following completion if the Customer believes the Services are defective in any way. If the Customer shall fail to comply with these provisions the Services shall be presumed to be free from any defect or damage. For defective Services, which Carpet Removal Sydney has agreed in writing that the Customer is entitled to reject, Carpet Removal Sydney liability is limited to rectifying the Services except where the Customer has acquired Services as a consumer within the meaning of the Trade Practices Act 1974 (CWlth) or the Fair Trading Acts of the relevant state or territories of Australia and is therefore also entitled to, at the consumer’s discretion either a refund of the purchase price of the Services or rectification of the Services.
– Fire alarms are not our duty to isolate on ALL jobs as we do not have the key to the fire alarm box or access to reach high fire alarms etc. PLEASE make sure that you isolate the fire alarms prior to our arrival as dust from the removal of concrete, magnesite etc will set off the fire alarms. If the fire alarms are set off and there is a fine it is not our duty to pay the fine if you failed to isolate the fire alarms. It should also be noted that all residents in the unit block should be aware that the fire alarms have been isolated.
– The customer MUST arrange for automatic and back-to-base smoke/fire alarms to be isolated prior to Carpet Removal Sydney commencing work and remain isolated for the duration of our work on-site (failing which the Client will be responsible for any call out and associated fees charged by emergency responders)
– Stripping floors usually produces a substantial amount of dust. Carpet Removal Sydney uses dust extraction units wherever reasonably possible and takes care to vacuum the work area after the completion of work. Despite this, Carpet Removal Sydney cannot eliminate dust completely and it is the Customer’s responsibility to protect and clean areas, as necessary.
– It should be noted that jobs that create a large amount of dust such as concrete grinding, magnesite removal, tile removal, etc, will be cleaned up by our workers after completion of work in the work area. All floors we worked on will be cleaned, as well as all unit block common areas, etc.
– If other area’s get affected with dust that we are not working in, such as the bathroom this is up to the client to clean. Other areas that are also hard to clean such as the roof, lights, windows, walls, furniture if on-site, mirrors are also up to the customer to clean. We are simply a removal team, not a cleaning team. We strongly recommend that you isolate any area that we are not working in.
– We will remove and dispose of all waste (unless a skip bin is required) though and clean up by sweeping and vacuuming the floors that we worked on. We will often just do a simple vacuum of the floor after we have removed your flooring system or have ground your floor. We are not an extensive cleaning team.
– Any and ALL additional cleaning costs are the client’s responsibility and not Carpet Removal Sydney’s. It is also recommended that you isolate areas that we are not working in to stop dust from penetrating other areas. It is always recommended that you hire a professional cleaner after having any major renovations completed. This is at the owner’s expense, not Carpet Removal Sydney’s.
– If your job requires our employees to wear PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) or if your job requires a site induction or any special licenses you MUST let us know 7 days before the job so that we can ensure everything is ready.
– Floors should be in sound condition and clear of all trade waste prior to our team’s arrival to remove your flooring system or perform our concrete grinding services. Please note that old underlays can sometimes be stuck to the floor. Any subfloor preparation will be at the customer’s expense (Such as concrete grinding or floor levelling services if they have not been quoted on)
– On completion of all jobs, please be on-site when work is complete to sign off that you are satisfied – our on-site supervisor will call you to do an essential part of the job known as the “Job Completion Walkthrough” to inspect the work and to make sure that it is completed to your standards and that you are happy with the work you have received BEFORE the team leaves for the day. This is especially important for jobs that require our team to hire expensive commercial equipment (such as concrete grinders). Because if we have to come back the next day for a small touch-up, we will have to rehire expensive equipment, which you will be charged for if we have to come back. So PLEASE inspect your job carefully on completion and ensure you are happy with the work you have received from our team. If the client is not present on completion of the job the work will be deemed completed to the best standards and approved for invoice payment. Please organise someone to be available to do the “Job Completion Walkthrough” when you book in your job.
– All complaints should be discussed and dealt with immediately. PLEASE DO NOT wait until after the team has left the property. If the team has “completed” the job and you are not happy with the work, you should discuss this issue immediately with the on-site supervisor or contact 0424 408 330 immediately while the team is still on-site so that they can fix any issues or complaints that you may have with the work. Once again, this is especially important for jobs that our team has hired equipment for because if we have to come back the next day for a touch-up, we will have to rehire equipment, which you will be charged for.
– It is always the customer’s responsibility to cover, protect and isolate all areas, surfaces and anything else prior to our team’s arrival that is likely to get damaged or have dust affect the area. Carpet Removal Sydney cannot be held liable for any of the costs of cleaning needed or damage caused due to the customer failing to cover, protect and isolate all areas and surfaces that they require protection too. We recommend using plastic sheets, sticky tape etc. If you do not want the areas to get affected by dust or debris while our team performs services such as vinyl removal, magnesite removal, tile removal, concrete grinding, etc.
Not All Jobs Can Be Dust-Free
– When we are completely stripping out a flooring system substantial dust is produced from removing the floor as well as from grinding the concrete. This dust is still reduced by the use of our high powered commercial dust extractors connected directly into our hand grinders, jack hammers & concrete grinders. But unfortunately, small amounts of dust is still produced and cannot be completely eliminated.
– It should also be noted that certain equipment such as concrete grinders needs some dust to work correctly. (Although over 90-95% of it is sucked up by a dust extractor that is plugged directly into the concrete grinder) but around 5-10% of the dust still escapes, this is intentionally designed like that as the concrete grinder needs dust under the diamonds to grind your concrete without damaging your concrete or our machines.
– Carpet Removal Sydney has high powered machinery for floor stripping and dust removal, this equipment requires a lot of power to operate at the same time, some houses & units with old electrical wiring & fuses have minimal power outputs are not capable of running all of our equipment at the same time, this may prevent us from using all of our equipment at the same time and may prevent us from using dust extraction equipment in some scenarios.
– You must provide our team with sufficient power for the use of our equipment, or you must provide temporary site power for our team from a source such as a generator. Depending on the size of your job as well as what services you are receiving you may need to provide more or fewer power points for the team. If you are concerned about your property’s lack of power please discuss this with our team before the job. As we may need several powerpoints on DIFFERENT circuits to power multiple high powered pieces of equipment to reduce the chance of your power “Overloading” and shutting down. Which would result in you having to hire a generator.
– Carpet Removal Sydney demolition and dust extraction equipment uses a large amount of electrical power to operate all the equipment at the same time, please have as many power points available as possible, on separate circuits.
– Minimal power will inhibit the safe operation of our machinery and delay job completion. If we have problems with insufficient power, waiting charges may apply while our team cannot work until the power is fixed/restored or a is generator is supplied for our team to continue working (ALL charges regarding the cost of the generator will be at the customer’s expense, this includes but may not be limited too: Hiring of the generator, transporting the generator to the location, returning the generator to the location, refuelling the generator, equipment Waiver Plus Fees) https://www.kennards.com.au/terms/

– If our team is booked in for a glued tile removal job and upon arrival to the job site the tiles have actually been laid with screed, cement or sand & cement then the customer WILL face additional charges. We charge $25 Per SQM for removal of glued tiles and $48 Per SQM for removal of tiles with a screed, cement or sand & cement bedding. We also have additional charges for tiles with a wire mesh through them. Please view our tile removal page for more information.
– Any waterproofing found under tile beddings will not be removed free of charge. If a waterproofing membrane is found and you want it removed there will be additional charges.
– If a tile removal job has over 10cm cement bedding you may face additional charges due to increased cost in labour and waste disposal.
– Tiles with a wire mesh cement underlay will face an additional charge of $10 per square metre to remove.
– Tiles that are attached to a wood subfloor will require a floor sander after we have removed the tiles. Unfortunately, floor sanding is not a service Carpet Removal Sydney offers so after we remove your tiles if you have a wood subfloor there may be glue or cement/screed residue that you will need to sand off.
– Our Satellite 480 concrete grinders can only grind up to 3mm of concrete off your slab without causing damage to the concrete and our machines. High powered commercial machinery such as concrete mowers or concrete planers is needed to level slabs as well as lasers to map everything out. Carpet Removal Sydney does not use concrete mowers or concrete planers. We only use standard high powered concrete grinders that are used to grind up to 3mm of concrete from the top of your slab to smooth it out, or we use our concrete grinders to remove up to 6mm to remove thick coatings of residues such as glues, paint, epoxy, waterproofing membranes, cement, screeds, etc.
– If we quote to remove vinyl, lino, tiles, carpet, etc from your property that is glued to concrete, we will then need to grind the concrete with a concrete grinder to remove the glue residue. This does not mean that we are going to level your concrete slab, we are simply removing the glue residue to allow the reinstallation of a new flooring system or a floor levelling compound successfully.
– If your concrete slab is not level and is completely out of whack this may affect our ability to be able to successfully use the concrete grinder as it relies on a level surface to function correctly.
– Additional charges may be charged to the customer if the subfloor needs to be scrapped at $150 – $250 / per hour (This charge may be higher or lower depending on the severity of the scraping that is needed and how strong the glue is or how many staples there are. We will always try our hardest to achieve the best results possible for our clients, but several factors such as what glue was used and on what subfloor will depend on how much of the underlay can be removed. This also includes things like the removal of thousands of staples from a wooden floor.
– Please note that some old properties have been laid with a rubber underlay on wooden floors. This can sometimes be so stuck down due to improper installation or it can be “Melted” to the floor. In these situations, there is nothing that our staff can do to make your floor flawless again. You will have to hire a floor sander to remove the remaining underlay.
– If a carpet removal job has been quoted as a “smooth-edged [$9/sqm] job” and upon inspecting/starting the job it is not smooth-edged and has been laid using a different method – Example: directly nailed to the floor [$15/sqm] or staple gunned [$17/sqm] or commercially glued [$25/sqm] than the original quote will be void and the job will result in extra charges.
– When removing Vinyl/Lino flooring systems our team will often need to use a “Powered Vinyl Stripping Machine” it should be noted that as Vinyl/Lino is glued to your floor when we use these machines or other scrapers and tools it may cause minor damage, scratches, etc to your floorboards. Luckily these can be removed by having your floorboards sanded & polished.
– Staple Gunned Carpet may have Hessian Brown Felt Carpet Underlay underneath it, this is known to potentially have ASBESTOS in it if you have not had your hessian brown felt carpet underlay tested for ASBESTOS, then we will not be able to complete your job. Carpet Removal Sydney DOES NOT take on ASBESTOS work.

– Magnesite Flooring may potentially have ASBESTOS in it, if you have not had your flooring system tested for ASBESTOS, then we will not be able to complete your job. Carpet Removal Sydney DOES NOT take on ASBESTOS work.
– Old Tiles may be installed with a Black Mastic ASBESTOS glue.
– Commercial Direct-Stick Carpet may be installed with a Black Mastic ASBESTOS glue.
– Old Carpet Tiles may be installed with a Bitumen ASBESTOS adhesive or Black Mastic ASBESTOS glue.
– Bituminous Waterproofing Membranes may also contain ASBESTOS.

– So even if you have had these flooring systems safely removed by a licensed ASBESTOS specialist. Our concrete grinding team will not be able to help you with the removal of the glue residue. As there will most likely be ASBESTOS residue in the glue as well.
