Why Choose Dust Free Tile Removal?

The main reason that homeowners do not remove tiles that are outdated is their concern about creating dust in the home. Most people, as well as contractors, do not want to have to deal with the mess. The system that we created here at DustRam® is to provide a solution to this problem for homeowners and capture the dangerous dust that is known to cause serious illnesses to those who are exposed.

Many people are completely unaware that the dust that is caused by floor removal is extremely dangerous when inhaled. The dust is in the air that we breathe in each day, however, the levels are low enough that they do not put us at any serious risk. For floor removal, the same cannot be said, particularly if the removal involves cement-based thin-set, tile, stone, or leveling compound.

Since the level of silica that gets into the air in an enclosed space such as a home or office is of a high concentration, it will exceed OSHA’s Permissible Exposure Levels to a significant extent.

On the list of respiratory hazards for occupational workers, OSHA includes crystalline silica. The medical diagnoses that are frequently included are long cancer and silicosis, indeed silica is viewed as a human lung carcinogen by OSHA as well as by CDC. Since it is such a hazard for occupational workers, it certainly would be deemed the same for your family.

Are you using a general contractor flooring contractor or a flooring supplier that is going to remove ceramic tile floors or other floor types from your home without the use of the industrial-grade tools that have been created by DustRam®? If this is the case, they create what is referred to as repeated exposure to crystalline silica dust, this is in violation of the Mitigation Standards of OSHA. To eliminate such problems all you need to do is find a contractor that can carry out dust-free tile removal.

Exposure to Respirable Crystalline Silica Dust

healthy vs nonhealthy lung
COPD

People that are exposed to respirable crystalline silica dust are at an increased risk of developing serious diseases and illnesses. Crystalline silica dust is produced during a tile removal job and the dust is then released back into the air you breathe.

DustRam® Dustless Tile Removal

Traditional and Virtually Dust Free

NO DUST, NO MESS

Crystalline silica dust is produced during the chipping tile process of a tile removal job. DustRam® uses its advanced system and technology to remove tile, capture the dust, and contain it. DustRam® captures 99.97% of crystalline silica dust.

EXTREMELY MESSY

Traditional tile removal captures about 10% of the dust created during the tile removal process while the virtually dust-free process captures about 60 to 70% Dust is inevitably released back into your home exposing you and your loved ones.

CLEAN AND HEALTHY

With DustRam® you will not endure the dusty mess from other tile removal methods that leave you with hundreds of pounds of dust all throughout your home. Our process is cleaner and healthier. No cleaning sessions are needed because we will leave your commercial or residential property cleaner than it was the moment our crew arrived. Our vacuum sucks up the silica dust particles and does not release them back into the atmosphere. This is indeed the cleaner and healthier tile removal.

DANGEROUS AND UNHEALTHY

With traditional and virtually dust-free tile removal processes, you will be exposed to the dangers of crystalline silica dust. Inhaling this dust for short and long-term periods may result in lung cancer, COPD, silicosis, kidney disease, and more. The dust particles are approximately 100 times smaller than a single sand grain meaning you will absolutely need to hire a professional cleaning company for months and possibly years to come just to get rid of the dust. 

READY FOR THE FLOOR INSTALLATION

DustRam® not only removes tile and captures the dust but also leaves the subfloor in your home better prepared for the installation process. Our system allows us to properly grind thin-set and scarify it leaving your concrete flatter and smoother. The scarification will let your new flooring bond significantly better to the concrete once it is laid. 

CONCRETE SLAB DAMAGE

Outdated tile removal methods require a thin-set to be scraped off using an attachment to the chipping hammer. As a result, pits are left in the concrete, and thinset is poorly removed. Your concrete slab will not be left in good condition for the floor installation process. 

24 US PATENTS – ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY

DustRam® provides a dustless solution to tile removal using the intricately designed and engineered tools and equipment that captures the microscopic dust particles from the demolition. With 24 proprietary attachments and pieces of equipment, the DustRam® system is truly unparalleled. 

OUTDATED SYSTEMS AND TECHNOLOGY

In tile removal, you most certainly get what you pay for. Many contractors will use sledgehammers and chisels to take out the tile. The outdated equipment and processes will end up costing you more in the long run. Don’t settle for traditional or virtually dust-free.

– The True Costs of a Traditional Tile Removal Job –

1. The Cost of Cleaning

Cleaning after a traditional floor removal job in codes vacuuming all surfaces such as carpets, rugs, window coverings, and furniture. There will also be the need to wipe down baseboards, as well as the walls in the property, ceilings, and fans, all light fixtures, sills, and tracks, then there is the vacuuming of AC vents. We are not finished yet as there is also dust removal from bookshelves, pictures, cabinets clothing, and so forth. The typical cost for this type of cleaning is between $550 and $800. There may be a need to schedule several cleaning sessions which may even scale into years.

To minimize the risk of health issues caused by repeat exposure as dust and debris swirl through the AV system and around the house, removing all particles is essential. The DustRam® system uses equipment that captures dust at the source of creation and hence prevents the problem of dangerous silica dust from being airborne. When you hire our team, you can forget about the worry of contaminated air. Call DustRam® today!

2. The Cost to Your Health

For DIY homeowners, using rented tools that are not part of their daily life can have a detrimental effect on their body in creating wear and tear. Even when the correct protective gear is worn, the task of tile removal is very physical. Removing flooring generates as much as a pound of dust for each square foot that is removed. That means that a typical removal of 800 square feet would generate 800 pounds of dust that could end up floating around the home. The silica dust particles that have entered the air in the home can float around for months, even when the property has been deep cleaned.

Dust can cause issues for everyone in the home, children, pets, elderly ones, however, for people who have breathing issues such as asthma, allergies, or COPD, the risk is even greater. Over the course of time, silica dust causes lung cancer and disease, however, these conditions can result after just weeks of exposure. Even when doing the least harm, silica has an impact on breathing as it causes fluid buildup and creates scar tissue.
