How to prepare for a kitchen re-fit
The best way to prepare for a new kitchen is to remove all items from cupboards and draws of your existing kitchen as well as removing any ornaments, hanging pictures and furniture from the room. If you are confident at DIY any small splash backs or tiled boarders you could remove from the kitchen yourself! Although if DIY is not your thing do not worry as we can do everything for you!
Remember, if you are having your kitchen fitted by Fixed Price trade then we can take care of every aspect of your kitchen, from design to removal and the fitting of your brand new kitchen.
Removing Wall Tiles
Equipment Needed: Hammer, Small Bolster, Rotary tool or Small screwdriver, Paint/Wallpaper scraper, Safety Goggles
- Scrape around the grout of the first tile to be removed using the rotary tool or screwdriver to create a crevice in which you can insert the bolster.
- Angle the bolster at about 45 degrees against the underneath of the tile and making sure you are wearing protective goggles tap the bolster lightly with the hammer until the tile becomes loose and comes away.
- Continue until all tiles are removed.
- Any remaining grout or tile adhesive can be removed with a stiff scraper. Any stubborn parts can be removed using the bolster and hammer.
Removing Lino/Vinyl flooring
Equipment Needed: Floor Scraper, Heat Gun, Utility Knife, Workman Gloves, Face mask
- Remove the plinth that hides the void underneath the base units of your kitchen as these may be sitting on top of the lino/vinyl to be removed. These can usually be removed quite easily, if you cannot remove them cut neatly along the edge of the plinth with the utility knife.
- Cut a square in the flooring with the utility knife large enough to get the floor scraper underneath.
- Using the floor scraper and wearing the gloves lift a corner of the cut area and with a backwards and forward motion slide the floor scraper underneath the lino/vinyl flooring, tearing off and lifting the flooring as you go. Depending on the area being worked on it might be a good idea to continue to cut and lift the floor in sections.
- Continue until all the flooring has been removed.
- Any adhesive that remains on the floor can be removed using the floor scraper or the heat gun and floor scraper. If using the heat gun wearing the face mask gently heat the adhesive until it becomes soft enough to remove. If you are exposing natural wood to be the final flooring be careful not to burn the floor with the heat gun or damage the floor with the floor scraper.
