Silica Dust Exposure From Tile Removal is Dangerous
Flooring contractors resorting to dated procedures like traditional tile removal or virtually dustless methods simply cannot guarantee a dust-free environment. These approaches compromise the health and cleanliness of your living space by allowing the perilous crystalline silica dust to linger.

Crystalline Silica Dust - A Hazardous Reality
***Take a look at all the silica dust that is going airborne during a traditional tile removal.
Being involved in the construction industry, it’s widely acknowledged that silica dust is hazardous. Prolonged exposure can lead to grave health complications such as silicosis and lung cancer. Workers frequently encounter silica dust during activities like tile cutting and removal.
This segment enlightens you about the serious consequences of continuous exposure to silica dust and the preventive steps you can take to reduce risk.
What You Need to Know about the Dangerous Dust
Crystalline silica is a natural constituent found in various construction materials such as concrete, bricks, and mortar. The act of cutting or drilling these materials generates dust particles that can permeate deep into your respiratory system, potentially causing long-term illnesses. The minute fragments of silica, or Respirable Crystalline Silica (RCS), are nearly invisible under normal lighting conditions, being a hundred times finer than a grain of sand on the beach.
In the U.S., over 2.2 million construction workers are jeopardized by inhaling silica dust annually, potentially leading to:
- Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD): A progressive disease obstructing lung airflow, leading to symptoms like shortness of breath, mucus production, and wheezing.
- Kidney Disease: Prolonged exposure to silica dust significantly heightens the risk of kidney diseases, including acute and chronic kidney failure.
- Lung Cancer: Regular exposure to RCS might escalate the risk of lung cancer, characterized by abnormal cell growth in the lungs which can potentially spread to other body parts.
- Silicosis: A severe respiratory condition resulting from regular exposure to RCS, which induces scar tissue formation in the lungs, obstructing oxygen absorption and can be fatal.
