The DustRam® Comprehensive System for Dustless Tile Removal
DustRam® began in 2008 when its founder, Jack King, began developing a method to collect dust while chipping the tile. He successfully invented and patented the DustRam® and began production.
From there DustRam® has invented and developed multiple proprietary attachments and pieces of equipment which collectively make up the most comprehensive system for dust free tile removal in existence. DustRam® currently owns 21 US patents and is widely considered the industry leader.

Avoid Exposure to Silica Dust with Dust Free Ceramic Tile Removal
In 2017 OSHA released its Final Ruling on Crystalline Silica Dust Mitigation establishing the responsibility of companies like ours to stay below the Permissible Exposure Level (PEL) which is outlined in the standard. This Standard was put into place due to the respiratory risk of breathing fine particulates like Crystalline Silica.
If it is bad for occupational workers to breathe in the high concentrations of silica dust found in enclosed spaces, then it is bad for our customers to breathe as well. After all, THE LUNGS ARE THE FINAL FILTER!
We are proud to say that the DustRam® System is compliant with the above standard which has been revised and is now known as OSHA’s Respirable Crystalline Silica Standard for Construction by keeping the working environment below the PEL and by having industrial-grade dust shrouds on each and every piece of equipment throughout the ceramic tile removal process.
We Chip the Tile, Collect Debris, & Grind the Thin-set, Dust-Free.
The DustRam® System allows us to chip the tile, collect debris, and grind the thin-set down to the slab; completely dust free, all while remaining below the PEL. The system can also be used to remove Saltillo, Wood, and Natural Stone floors, such as Marble, Travertine, Slate, and Flagstone.
An added benefit of grinding away thin-set is that with proper profiling, we will help to ensure the proper bonding recommended by ANSI A108 and the Tile Council of North America, by creating anchor patterns on the concrete slab. Our system is designed to give you peace of mind by prepping the floor with proper scarification processes, which will help to ensure the new floor will adhere to the substrate properly. You will be thrilled that there is no need to pay for professional cleaners after the tile removal process.
Comparing Traditional Tile Removal to Dustless Tile Removal
TRADITIONAL TILE REMOVAL
DUSTRAM® SYSTEM TILE REMOVAL
EXPOSURE TO DUST
The crystalline silica dust that is created during the removal process permeates every single in of your residential property. Inevitably so, the dust will make its way into closed cabinets, air ducts, drawers, and more. This results in having to contract a cleaning company to remove the dust particles from the inside of your home which can cost you a lot of time and money.
The DustRam® system catches every last bit of dust that was created during the removal process. The DustRam® system has fourteen patents that allow our team to not miss any particles. This ultimately means that you won’t have to hire a cleaning company to clean up the mess that comes with the traditional tile removal process. That is why dustless tile removal is the way to go!
Crystalline Silica is a dangerous dust that is created during the traditional tile removal process. The dust can cause severe respiratory problems and it has been classified as a lung carcinogen by the National Cancer Institute. The incurable respiratory disease or lung fibrosis is widely known as silicosis. This disease reduces lung function, scars lung tissue, and can cause tuberculosis.
The dust created during the demolition of your tile floors is captured completely. Dustless tile removal companies like DustRam® use special vacuums to suck up the dust and harmful particle matter that protects the professionals, children, homeowners, and any pets in the home.
CONCRETE SLAB IS DAMAGED
During the traditional tile removal process, thin-set is scraped off and this can leave pits in your concrete. Ultimately the slab is left poorly prepped for the floor installation process. With the dustless tile removal method your subfloor is left smooth and ready for the installation.
READY FOR NEW FLOORING
Our DustRam® tools allow our professionals to grind off leftover thin-set and catch any dust in the process. Scraping the thinset off is not something we have to do during the dustless tile removal process. This means no thinset will be left behind, leaving your subfloor flatter, smoother, cleaner, and better prepared for the floor installation process.
There are contractors out there that will still show up to your home with chisels and sledgehammers to remove your tile. Many companies will use outdated methods leaving you with more work even after the removal of the tile. Save both time and money by hiring a company that specializes in dustless tile removal instead.
HIGH TECH – ORIGINAL AND PATENTED
With DustRam® Houston, you will get experts with decades of experience in the flooring removal industry. We use modern technology and tools that enable us to not only get the job done efficiently but to also leave your home dust free!
Be aware that crystalline silica is classified as a human lung carcinogen (cancer-causing) by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and is the sole cause of SILICOSIS. OSHA has implemented these standards to get ahead of the curve to prevent exposure to silica; much like they did with ASBESTOS.
Using DustRam® Houston for DUST FREE TILE REMOVAL means that you will be UNDER-EXPOSED to the effects of Crystalline Silica instead of suffering through a repeated OVER-EXPOSURE.
