We also have a vinyl lifting machine at All Aces Cleaning and Restoration. This machine is used to lift carpets and when glued down to vinyl floors. Since the vinyl tiles, in most cases, contain asbestos, we also an Asbestos B license to further guarantee the safety of our operations.

It is important to note that bamboo floors also need to be removed after a flood as it is difficult to determine whether the bamboo floor is dry after the flood. This is because the floor is usually filled with silicon fillers that cause the pin meter and the non-penetrating meter to give inaccurate readings. It is therefore expedient to involve professionals who can effectively remove the floor and also replace it.
