We had already discovered that the areas under the cabinets once featured vinyl flooring.
Jeff recommended Arizona Home Floors, a company with a really unique service: extremely low-dust tile removal. The owner, Jack King, invented the “DustRam® Dust-Free Tile and Flooring Removal System.” It’s patent-pending, so I wasn’t allowed to photograph the equipment in use, but here’s something better: a video! After watching this and talking to them, I knew this was the right way to go.
The DustRam® system lived up to its name. Normally tile removal throws dust everywhere, requiring heavy tenting of the area. This equipment works just like it does in the video, sucking up the dust as it’s being created.
Note for Canaries: If you’re using this service, be sure to tell them you’re chemically-sensitive. The process itself uses no additional products, but the company likes to give leave customer-appreciation scented candle packages. You’ll want to be sure they don’t bring that into your home.
