black mastic removal

Click to see before and after black mastic (adhesive) has been removed from a concrete floor

We have experience working in residential homes built from before 1983 (especially in the 1950’s-1970’s) that contain black mastic glue and linoleum, also known as sheet vinyl but we get the floors back down to bare concrete dust free.

It doesn’t matter if the home is in Tucson, Glendale, Phoenix or by us here in Tempe, black adhesive can be in any city.

The patented DustRam System is able to remove all of the black glue with no dust, the photo you see at the top of this page shows a nice before and after of a 1970’s home we worked on here in Arizona.

Here are some videos and information about our process of removal for this type of black adhesive.

Our office is based in Tempe, but depending on the size of the project, we do travel outside of the Phoenix metro area.  Below you will find a recent Yelp review from a homeowner who had removed his flooring and found the black glue under it as you see in the videos above.

The flooring was removed dust free and brought back to bare concrete.

Our patented DustRam System captures the debris and concrete dust before it has a chance to go airborne and contaminate the home.

See some of the videos below when our crew removes black mastic from areas that previously had linoleum which we also can remove using the same grinder, we simply switch out the grinding blade to remove it dustless.

Common in homes built in the 20th century, black mastic was used as an adhesive for ceramic tile, linoleum, and other flooring materials.

When you remove that floor covering to make way for new flooring, you may encounter the mastic and wonder whether it is safe to remove.

Our patented DustRam system is designed to capture all of the dust and particles before they go airborne.

Here is what black mastic glue looks like when it has been ground, a nice before and after video:
