Removing shower tile can be one of the most dusty and difficult things that happen with a bathroom remodel, which is precisely why contractors won’t show the process. Since we have over 10 years of experience removing tile in a shower while the customer is home, we thought we would show the world how it’s done dust free.
Here is a video showing Arizona Home Floors using the patented DustRam System to capture all of the dust before it goes airborne while removing tile from the shower, the drywall and the shower tile pan:

This project took a long time to do, our crew spent nearly a full eight hours working the master bathroom tile not only in the shower but also the tub surround and backsplash. We will be providing more video links to those pages in the future, but most contractors tend to make claims that they are able to “keep the dust down” by hanging plastic, using negative air machines and by using fans.
Not only is this false, it’s potentially dangerous as the dust can contain traces of silica, which is toxic and can cause all types of breathing problems from exposure.
Under no circumstances should a contractor be removing tile in a home that is occupied due to that reason alone as people with even the smallest type of breathing issue like asthma or COPD are in danger of getting sick when traditional methods are used.
In our experience, we can do 1,000 square feet of ceramic tile removal on a floor using four people in about one day or less, but removing shower tile is very much a team effort.
We utilize custom made PulseRam vacuums, you can click the image on the left to zoom in.
These vacuum systems are made in the USA cost well over $12,000 and pull in all of the dust as the tile and drywall is coming out, so you can remain in your home during the removal, it is very loud but completely safe for you to be home as all of the dust is captured before it goes in the air.
Arizona Home Floors bring eight of these vacuum systems to a home and they utilize a large metal tank instead of the cheap Chinese plastic bag system, so there is never a danger of dust escaping, plus, we typically leave our vacuums outside of the home unless we have to work upstairs.
Call us TODAY: (480) 418-1635 and we will go over how having over 10 years of experience in removing tile dust free has given us a huge advantage by allowing us to remove your shower tile dust free, and we guarantee in writing that your home will be cleaner when we leave than when we arrived.
