Vinyl Removal

Home Services Vinyl Removal

Vinyl removal can be difficult as most of the time, the vinyl flooring has been laid on a subfloor of concrete or timber and as both are porous materials, it absorbs the adhesive over time. If the vinyl flooring has been laid on concrete, we will need to grind the adhesive to remove contaminants and create a smooth finish for flawless installation of new flooring.

Committed to minimising disruptions to your business

Do you have some old vinyl flooring throughout your commercial property? Flooring showing signs of wear and tear can do much more than impact the look of your business, it can pose a significant safety risk to those working in the space.

Vinyl removal can be difficult as most of the time, the vinyl flooring has been laid on a subfloor of hardwood or plywood and as wood is a porous material, it absorbs the adhesive over time. If the vinyl flooring has been laid on concrete, we will likely need to grind the adhesive to create a smooth finish for flawless installation of new flooring.

When considering any flooring for your space, it is important to consider the integrity of the substrate first. The quality of the final product is a direct reflection of the quality of the substrate. First Flooring can survey and rectify any substrate as long as it is structurally sound.


The integration of transitions between products is vital to the overall look and functionality of the space.

An improperly designed transition can detract from the craftmanship and quality of the product.

The beauty about supplying and installing all commercial floor finishing means First Flooring has control of the transitions. We can customise the substrate thickness in order to minimise and in some cases completely eliminate ramping. For instance, a small office may have a 15 mm ramp to the hallway floor finish. This would mean a ramp will protrude into the small room taking up some of the vital office space. The ideal solution is to lift the entire office with either a carpet underlay or for a rigid substrate, the use of leveller or ply. The transitions with First Flooring are easy and customisable for each and every product and area.


A flat, smooth subfloor is required for a successful floor covering installation. There are a range of leveling compounds that vary on price depending on the application. For instance, an out of level timber substrate can be levelled using a fibre-reinforced levelling compound for interiors. This is a premium product and is suitable for most commercial and domestic floor finishes (excluding industrial), whereas a standard leveling wont be able to go over timber and will not be suitable for all floor finishes. First Flooring is able to survey the area and recommend the most suitable product for the type of flooring specified. If there isn’t a finish specified, we can recommend and supply a finish, providing you a comprehensive warranty from subfloor right through to the floor finish.
