The DustRam® System Equipment Eliminates Dust Control Measures
Using this equipment saves time, effort and money spent on preventative measures that do not accomplish eliminating dust. Please review the following examples of the benefits of the using the system:
- The equipment can be operated in occupied homes and businesses without the need for plastic sheeting and tape.
- For tile chip and grit control only, we request clients move furniture to adjacent rooms. In cases where furniture or electronics are still close to the work area, a temporary wall of plastic sheeting is erected or plastic laid over the items.
- The HVAC and/or A/C units can remain on during the removal and vents do not require plastic covering.
- Items in closets and/or pantry, cabinets, drawers, and on closet shelves do not have to be removed unless in contact with the floor area. Doors to adjacent rooms do not require plastic or tape. Only items that block visibility of the work area, hamper movement or operation of equipment, will need to be relocated.
- Personal items on countertops and bathroom vanities should be removed by the Homeowner to prevent contamination by errant chips or materials from the tile chipping process. Towels, toothbrushes, and other bathroom items should not be placed in the bathtub or shower.
With this equipment and processes, a skilled crew should leave the clients’ home free of debris, and it should be cleaner than before the tear-out took place.
Powerful Technologically Advanced Equipment For DustFree Tile Removal
Our equipment is not just one but a combination of specialized pieces of equipment working together to complete each phase of the tear-out. Eliminating just one piece of the equipment will result in a reduction of speed and increase the debris generated. Attempting to integrate other equipment in to the system will not produce desired results. For example, replacing the DustRam® Chipping Hammer attachment with cheap rubber or plastic boots will not result in the same collection of the debris generated. These boots will clog and the chipping hammer does not move forward as easily through the debris. Over time, the boots will start to disintegrate upon impact with resistant surfaces because they were originally designed for concrete drilling than tile removal. Real world extensive job site testing has shown that the DustRam® Chipping Hammer attachment does not encounter these issue, extends the life of the chipping hammer and removes flooring 3 to 4 times faster in the hands of the operator.
Removing tile is hard enough but removing the thinset below is even more difficult, complex and time consuming. The industry standard has been to use chipping hammer chisel blades that can and will gouge the concrete in the process of removing the thinset; tools and methods that fail in both speed and cleanliness. Our experience in the Phoenix, Arizona market is that 30% of all concrete subfloors is “Soft”. For this reason, “ride-on floor strippers” or stand-up chipping hammers are not ideal for use on residential concrete. Most contractors rarely invest in a single 7″ grinder and when they do, the current tool suppliers offer them completely unsuitable shroud designs. Our equipment has technologically advanced, highly engineered for performance shrouds. We also will be offering a modified Edco TG-10 grinder that will grind twice as fast and many times cleaner than a stock TG-10. All our grinders, shrouds and custom designed grinding wheels out perform, and if used correctly, outlast any of those supplied by current manufacturers. Our equipment removes thinset from soft concrete, backerboard and wood subfloors fast and with the least amount of damage, leaving floors measurably flatter and better prepared for new flooring installation.
The vacuum you decide to use will ultimately make or break your reputation if you advertise ‘Dust Free’ and cannot deliver that promise. Many expensive industrial vacuums on the market clog if they lack the capacity to self-clean their filters. Our equipment is used in combination with industrial vacuums that are modified by us to increase power and performance. To put this into perspective, we have buried more than half the filters with almost no significant loss of power or performance due to our modifications. No local hardware or retail home improvement store can offer the kind of vacuum you need to achieve dust free tile removal that ours can.
Marketing to Higher-End Clientele for Maximum Profit
If your current equipment is not giving you a client base and projects for middle to higher-end homeowner clientele, designers, contractors, remodelers or commercial buildings, purchasing our equipment can elevate you to a more professional level and make your investment in the DustRam® System equipment worthwhile. For example, if your current market price for tile removal is $1.25-$1.50 sq. ft. to cover labor and outdated, traditional equipment, imagine how much more profitable it would be to charge a minimum of $2.50-$3.00 sq.ft., depending on whether the premises are occupied. Typically, the savings on labor and materials for clean-up alone is at least $0.50 sq.ft., meaning more tear-out profits. Certain types of flooring like Saltillo tile can command as much as $5.00 sq.ft. using our equipment and clients will pay for it. Pricing will depend on your current market but do consider that not only do your profits increase per square foot, you are able to remove flooring about 3 times faster. If you currently average 300 sq.ft. per day with your existing equipment, that means you could potentially remove 900 sq.ft. per day using our equipment. You will see the return on your investment quickly based on how much work you can secure and how large the projects.
DustRam® System Equipment: 100% Unconditional Warranty for 3 Years
The Military Grade equipment we manufacture comes with a 100% unconditional warranty for 3 years, with all other integrated items warrantied by the original manufacturer using their warranty guidelines. Other than wearable items like grinding wheels, skirts, vacuum hoses and exhaust tubes subject to abrasive wear our equipment is built to last for years.
Equipment Packages Available to Suit Your Business Size
The equipment can be designed to accommodate both your present business needs and future goals. Smaller-sized contractors, plumbers, electricians and kitchen/bath remodelers may require only a minimum one-man system. Depending on job conditions, this allows for 200-400 sq. ft. per day of ceramic or porcelain tile removal, including thinset. A two-man package allows for 400-600 sq. ft. and a three-man package allows for approximately 600-1000 sq. ft. per day. With profits generated by using our equipment, more equipment can be purchased as your business and size of crew grows.
