Suggestions on equipment to remove ceramic tiles and adhesive (thinset)?


Removing Ceramic Tile - I have job to remove thousands of sq. ft of ceramic tiles. Any suggestions on the type of equipment to remove the ceramic tiles and adhesive (thinset)? We are not allowed to use any equipment that will produce odor within the building.


ANSWER - What to use to remove a lot of ceramic tile depends on how well it is bonded to the substrate.  If it is bonded well then you should use a jack hammer with a wide flat head.  If it comes up easy then you could probably use the larger floor scrappers.  Either way there will be dust, but there isn't any odor from any type of chemicals.  Good Luck!
