What's The Best Method For Peel And Stick Tile Removal?

By Lisa Hobbie Created: October, 2021 - Modified: August, 2023

Peel and stick tile removal is a relatively easy process that requires time and a tool or two like a floor scraper and a hammer.

How To Complete The Tile Removal

  1. Press the floor scraper on the crack of the flooring and tap it with your hammer.
  2. Pop the first tile up.
  3. If it isn’t coming up easily, you can take a flat bar and shove it under the tile and work it back and forth until it pops up.
  4. Once it’s removed, place a flat bar or floor scraper on the edge, and drive it in with a hammer.
  5. Old, commercial flooring may break into pieces, but it can be removed the same exact way.
  6. Continue with this removal process until all of the old tiles are removed.
  7. Clean the subfloor, as needed, and prep it as required for a new flooring product.
