Inhalation of the Dust from a Wood Floor Removal is Dangerous
Engineered wood floor removal can generate pounds of dust particles that are harmful to your health and is not necessarily the result of the existing wood floor; but rather the concrete sub-floor or concrete-based leveling materials installed over the concrete. These materials allow the engineered wood, luxury vinyl, or laminate floors, lay perfectly flat. During the removal process, the leveling compound, also known as float or underlayment, emits dust containing crystalline silica, a known respiratory hazard.
The traditional way of removing wood floors leaves you with excess dust that pervades your home, and it is hard to get rid of for months or even years to come. It also creates exposure to the silica dust from the float. Breathing silica is particularly dangerous in enclosed spaces and is too small for the HVAC system to filter. Therefore, large amounts of silica and repeated long-term exposure by the inhabitants of the home are, in fact, hazardous. In other words, your lungs are the filter leading to Silicosis and even Lung Cancer.

Most Contractors Don't Remove Adhesives and Glue
Additionally, engineered wood and luxury vinyl floors are secured to the sub-floor using an adhesive or glue. Once the flooring material’s removal is complete, the glue or adhesive needs grinding to bond the new flooring material to the concrete sub-floor properly. Flooring stores or installation contractors rarely remove adhesives and glue utilizing this method due to their inability to control the dust. Most flooring companies use inadequate methods of removing this type of bonding agent. Generally, scrapers are used to take off the surface glue. The remaining glue becomes a barrier to a proper bond between the setting agent (thin-set, leveling compound, etc.) of the new floor and the concrete or sub-floor. Watch more videos of our past projects and see how our process works.
Other Contractors Typically Use Inadequate Methods
Grinding glue and other types of adhesive is typically the dustiest work done inside of a home. If not correctly implemented, this process creates exposure to Crystalline Silica dust, as the grinding process scarifies the concrete or float while it removes the glue or adhesive. An additional benefit of the dust-free grinding of engineered wood glue or adhesive with the DustRam® System is that the grinding process leaves behind anchor patterns or scarification marks on the concrete subfloor as the glue is ground away. This aids in creating a more permanent bond with the new floor and its setting materials, and the sub-floor.
In fact, if the engineered wood floor is replaced with a stone or man-made tile which requires a thin-set to be used as the bonding agent, then grinding the glue would be required according to ANSI A.108. This standard for tile installation shows the importance of proper engineered wood glue removal by mechanical scarification. DustRam® can perform the dust-free grinding of engineered wood floor removal, and simultaneously provide the added benefit of anchor patterns per this important standard.
