If your current flooring has seen better days, it’s probably time to think about replacing it with something new. But, to get the job done to a high standard you need a good quality floor stripping machine that will cut through a range of floor coverings and prepare your floors for the next step.

Here are some important things to know about floor stripping machines.

What type of floor stripper is best?

Firstly, you need to think about the type of flooring you are removing and the size of the space. Most machines are suitable for a range of flooring types but it’s always best to double-check beforehand. If you are working on a large space then a ride-on stripping machine could be most suitable whereas walk behind strippers are good for smaller areas.

What kind of flooring can be stripped?

The great thing about most floor strippers is that there’s a machine for almost any type of flooring, including soft and hard floors, which makes your job a lot easier and quicker. From carpet to ceramic tiles and vinyl, preparing your new flooring is simple when you have the right equipment on site.

Do you need dust extraction when stripping flooring?

Compared to grinders and scabblers, dust isn’t usually a problem when you’re stripping flooring so there is no need to hire a dust extractor too. However, you can take other safety precautions such as arranging an on-site demonstration or equipment set up so you know exactly how to use each machine.

Why are floor stripping machines beneficial?

Some types of flooring cannot be removed by hand so that’s where stripping machines become useful. With efficient stripping blades, these machines make removing flooring quick, safe and easy so you have a clean surface to lay your new flooring. They also come with a variety of blades and attachments so no matter what kind of work you require you can get your project off to a great start.
