Wood Grain Tile Flooring – The type of floor you choose has a big impact on the overall look of a room. The floor is a large feature, occupying a large amount of visual space. Wood and ceramic offer a wide range of beautiful, durable flooring options to incorporate more any design scheme. Standard installation of ceramic floors consists of gluing the tiles to the wood or cement board. Ceramic tiles installed using these methods are easy to remove.
However, if the ceramic tiles were set directly in a mortar. Then removal will be more difficult and should be done by a professional. Keep in mind that removing ceramic floors is not always necessary as many types of wood grain tile flooring can be installing just above existing ceramic tiles. Wear gloves to protect hands from the edges of broken tiles. Safety goggles to help you prevent an eye injury while breaking apart the ceramic tile. Use a chisel and a hammer to break apart a ceramic tile. Carefully remove the tiles from the floor.
Adjust the chisel against the expose edge of one of the ceramic tiles next to the tile that has been removing. Use the hammer to hit the chisel that slides under the tile. The wood grain tile flooring should pop off as the chisel slides beneath it. Continue to remove the tiles by prying the floor with the chisel and a hammer until they have all been removing from the ceramic tile.
