Health is never something to take for granted. We all take into consideration elements that affect our health when it comes to food, activities, and our surrounding environment, so let’s take a look at how home projects can affect your health, and specifically the health of your family and pets.
Why is Tile Dust Dangerous?
The danger of tile dust lies in its main component of crystalline silica, which can enter the lungs and create scratches in the tissue of the respiratory system, preventing oxygen from being absorbed correctly. Clearly, we want to avoid this at all costs for our workers and any residing in the home. It has been estimated that for each square foot removed, nearly a pound of dust is created. Some imported tiles can even contain lead, which poses an even greater threat.
Hazardous dust infiltrates your HVAC system during renovations and recirculates through your home, coating each surface with a layer of dirt and crystalline silica. There is no way to avoid this during the traditional tile removal process, that is why we only recommend dustless tile removal for any tile projects you have.
What is Dustless Tile Removal?
This process involves highly trained specialists, specifically designed tools, and high-powered vacuums to get rid of the dust at the source. The outcome is identical, but with our dustless tile removal, the end product is cleaner, more level, and significantly safer for all involved. The cost difference may not be ideal, but with the added cost of clean up after the project is complete, the choice is clear. Dustless tile removal is well worth the price for a flawless outcome, safety and health for your family, and little to no clean up after the project is completed.
All of our tools are fitted with special attachments, which immediately remove the dust and contain it within our industrial vacuums. Our vacuums are high-suction and require a greater amount of power than even the top-tier vacuums, which is why we bring our own generators to protect your home from greater electric bills or power surges. We also run our hoses outside to prevent any spread of dust or dirt within your home.
