So you were searching how to remove bathroom tiles without breaking on google and you landed on this post, well I have great news for you because you landed in the perfect place. In this post, we will be talking about how to remove bathroom tiles without breaking them. As a hard process as it may seem it is not impossible to do so without breaking the tiles. Though there is a high chance of breaking the tiles through the process of trying to remove them. So the most logical thing to do might be calling for professional help but hey if you trust yourself on the process no problem just keep focusing on the steps that you are about to read. I hope you get to remove those tiles without even breaking on of them.

Check If the Tiles Are Attached to The Ground

First things first, check if the tiles are firmly attached to the ground if yes you will have a hard time removing these tiles. If they are not firmly attached then great! It will be easier than we thought it would be. Now that you have checked we are starting the process, are you ready?

Removing All The Grout – Using a GroutSaw

Let us start by removing all the grout you can do so using a grout saw, rotary cutter, oscillating tool, or utility knife. Be sure to remove all the grout as much as possible, the more you remove the easier it will be for you to remove bathroom tiles without breaking them.

Position a Chisel in the Grout Line

We are at the next step, good job so far, but the hard part is starting now. Position a chisel in the grout line, try getting under as much as possible, and very kindly hit the chisel with a hammer to see if the tile will pop (let us hope that it does). Did it pop? If it did that is perfect the other steps will be much easier.

If it does not pop but it is still attached to the ground there is a chance that it will break so be very careful. Keep tapping the chisel with the hammer gently. Once it pops remove that section of the tile.

Now that one of the sections of the tile is removed it will be much easier to remove the rest. Now just keep on doing this chisel trick with the other sections of the tile.

These are the steps on how to remove bathroom tiles without breaking. If you managed to do it, I am very proud of you you did a great job, as we mentioned at the beginning of the post it is not an easy task to do.

If you are still not sure if you can remove the tiles without breaking I highly suggest that this is the right time to call for professional help.
