Vinyl flooring removal (VCT) has been popular in both residential and commercial locations for years. It is water-resistant and affordable. Additionally, it comes in a variety of colours and patterns; there is something for every taste and style. That said, over time vinyl flooring ages, the results of which are extremely visible. Colours fade and eventually it begins to peel and even separate from the subfloor.
If you have decided to replace your vinyl flooring, either because of its age or because you are bringing in a new look, the first step in the process is flooring removal.  While you may be tempted to undertake this yourself, you should absolutely consider working with a professional. The removal of vinyl can be time-consuming and a difficult process.
Floor prep is the most important part of the floor coating process and repairs need to be made prior to applying any floor coating or installing any new tile. Whether you are installing new tile or beautifying a concrete floor, preparing the existing surface by removing mastic, glues, and adhesives is critical to ensuring a smooth and durable finish. If you apply a new floor coating or install tile on top of an untreated surface, the application will be uneven and the installation will look unattractive.
Mastic is a resin-based adhesive that is used to set tile. Because mastic sometimes contains asbestos, it must be carefully removed and disposed of. Enviro’s trained professionals use professionally formulated mastic remover to separate mastic from concrete surfaces. This environmentally safe liquid softens mastic, adhesives, and glue from concrete, tiles, and carpet, allowing for easy removal and disposal without harmful fumes.
