Disposing and Removing Old Tile Floor – Tips from Joe Walker’s Flooring

removing old tile floor

No matter the flooring we can help you find a way to dispose of it!

Fittings and Removals

When it comes to Joe Walker’s fitting service, we will remove any scraps and out cuts from your newly installed flooring. We always aim to carry out our flooring installations in the tidiest way possible! And, don’t worry, we won’t leave large amounts of rubbish in your bins. At every opportunity, we will recycle the materials and anything that cannot be recycled we will dispose of appropriately at our own premises.

Laminate Flooring

In the case of laminate flooring, thanks to improved technological processes, it has become much easier than it used to be for it to be recycled. It is now the case that up 85% of the fibres and wood chips that make up laminate flooring can now be put back into the laminate production process. It can be a struggle to recycle laminate flooring at your local council centres, so it may be worth checking with the laminate manufacturer directly as to what recycling procedure they recommend.

DIY and Up-cycling

The final way we recommend for disposing of your flooring is up-cycling. This is ideal if you’re feeling creative! Plus, it’s something you can get your whole family involved with. Create a DIY project and include the materials you are unsure of what to do with! You might even end up with something completely different.

Rely on Joe Walker’s Flooring to take care of every aspect of your flooring needs.


5* From start to finish the service that we received from Joe and his staff was outstanding! They came and measured when they said they would, were on time and same again with the fitting. The showroom had loads to chose from and joe advised us what was best for our house which was very helpful. Can't recommend highly enough and wouldn't go anywhere else. Thank you
