Glue and Mastic Removal
Our grinders can remove glue, adhesives, and mastics left over from carpet, VCT (vinyl tile), and other flooring systems. These products are adhered directly to the concrete and are very difficult to remove without certain equipment. Houston Grinder Rental carries the specialty equipment and tools to perform even the toughest mastic removal projects.
For most residential applications, we pair a Lavina 20N-X Concrete Grinder with an Ermator S-26 Dust Collector for efficient and dust free removal of glues, mastics & adhesives. The 20N-X grinder runs on 220v power and comes equipped with adapters to plug directly into your dryer or stove plug. Our small equipment can take a 1,000 SF floor down to bare concrete in less than a day.
For larger commercial applications, we pair a Lavina 30G-X propane grinder with a ride-on floor scrubber. A wet removal process is a fastest and most efficient way to remove glues and adhesives in bulk.
Our equipment can remove:
Cutback Adhesive or Black Mastic Removal
Tan Mastic or other Tile Adhesives
Carpet Adhesive (Carpet Glue)
We carry only commercial grade equipment that will produce fast results and keep your project moving forward. The smaller grinders available at large retailers like Lowes and Home Depot may be slightly cheaper but will be slower and cost more in the long run. Avoid equipment that uses stone “blocks,” as those tools are not effective for removing adhesives.
Many rental companies, including large box stores, will make their customers purchase the diamond tooling that attaches to the grinder. We rent the tooling and spread that cost over several clients.
Do you need it delivered? We offer a delivery service for those without a vehicle large enough to transport the equipment. Our personnel will deliver, set-up, and show you how to use our equipment on your floor.
