How to remove Parquet Hardwood Flooring

Removing parquet wood flooring can be a very difficult action when preparing for a new hardwood installation. Depending on the glue used for the installation, an area as big as the one you see in this video can take up to 2-3 days of work in order to remove the parquet flooring. This time we got lucky and removed almost 250 sq ft in about 15 minutes.

It was glued down. The glue they used was not a high quality glue, though. The horror stories you’ve heard off are true. You are not really able to tell how it’s going to come out until you start removing it (unfortunately). Here’s a video with some tips for the one that doesn’t come up easily: “How to remove engineered hardwood floors from concrete subfloor”. My channel is ATLFLOORS. Thanks for visiting!

What’d they use for glue? Spit and good intentions?

Chris says:

Was that glued down? That looks so easy compared to the horror stories I’ve heard. How do I know if my floor will come off that easily or if it will be a nightmare like other people’s floors?

Eric Lyng says:

My dogs seem to just love pulling it up and chewing it all to splinters. Those fargin bastages!!!

Chris Girth says:

Uh, who is the hot guy pulling up the flooring? I want him to spend some time at my house immediately
