After removing your existing flooring you may find it necessary to remove the adhesive left behind before a new flooring material can be installed. We can remove tile thinset/mortar, carpet adhesive, vct adhesive, mastic and epoxy coatings.
The removal process is virtually dust free and consists of one aggressive grind, typically done with 30 grit diamonds or PCDs. Our grinders are attached to high quality dust collectors minimizing the amount of airborne dust. Grinding the concrete is also a great surface prep for applying epoxy or concrete overlays.
We also offer bulk adhesive removal using carbide scraper tooling attached to our grinders. This process is used for VCT and glue down carpet adhesive removal when a similar type flooring material will be put back in place. The process will remove the bulk of the adhesive leaving only a slight residue on the concrete. This process is more cost effective than traditional grinding and is great for commercial property management companies preparing units for leasing.
Removal of vct, carpet and mastic adhesive from structures built before 1980 will require proof of asbestos testing from a lab before removal can begin. Local testing can easily be found on the internet and is fairly inexpensive. Pro Shine can take samples of your floor and submit for testing. We cannot grind floors that have been coated with a product containing asbestos at any point in time, even if the adhesive was properly abated.
Pro Shine can remove your glue down carpet, ceramic tile and VCT.
While polished concrete requires minimal maintenance it is not a maintenance free flooring. Cleaning your floor with a professional piece of equipment like an autoscrubber and high speed burnishing is sometimes all it takes to bring your floors shine back. Some floors may require sealer reapplication and sometimes joint fillers need to be removed and replaced. We can also repair cracks and spalls on polished and unpolished concrete.
We can provide you with the services you need to make your concrete look like the day it was finished. Contact us today!
