Still Have Questions about our Polished Concrete Perth Services?


This is completely dependent on the type of flooring that you currently have. For example, tiles and direct stick carpet can take more time to remove. Since they are glued down they require special equipment such as jackhammers to remove them, and then the glue needs to be removed with concrete grinders. Where as laminate floorings and carpet installed with an underlay is a much quicker removal process.

However, there is no exact timeframe. Which is why we offer a free quote and consult to discuss your project. From here we’ll be able to give you a better timeline for the concrete floor preparation service.

While our team do most of the surface preparation and will leave your site  clean, there are a few steps that you can take to make sure that your home and furnishings are protected from dust and debris. These include:

  • Covering any furniture in the general area in plastic. This will protect them from dust accumulation and other imperfections.
  • Make sure that you cover your A/C unit.
  • Remove any furniture that is taking up space on the floor that we will be working. This includes couches, lamps and even toilets if we are doing a bathroom floor removal.

We do use dust extraction on all our floor removal services, but unfortunately cannot guarantee a 100% dust free job.

We do use dust extractors on all our jobs and aim to minimise dust as much as possible. However, due to the nature of the materials we are working with there will always be some dust during the job.

We remove tiles by using high quality equipment such as speciality chisels and jackhammers, cleaning as we go. This makes the process more efficient than using a hammer and chisel, which means your concrete floor is ready for the next stage faster.

If you’re interested in attempting to save your tiles rather than demolish them, we can apply specialty methods to help you do so. However, you will need to be mindful that this may take more time.

Typically, most of the glue is removed during the removal process. However, it is common for there to be some remaining spots. Removal of these spots is a standard part of our service, and these glue spots are easily removed by our team with our concrete grinding equipment.

While taking on your own floor removal project might seem like a fun project and a chance to save money, it can end up being back breaking and more expensive if not done properly. The team at DS Grinding’s floor prep division are confident that hiring a professional is a much better solution.

Not only is our service affordable, it is completed by highly trained professionals who have developed effective floor removal solutions, to get your new flooring ready to be transformed quickly.

Yes, we do! The team at DS Grinding are an award winning concrete finishing company specialising in honed and polished concrete flooring. Once your old flooring has been removed and prepped, our finishing team will come in to deliver you a beautiful, finished floor for your residential or commercial property.
