unable to remove tiles without breaking majority o

Asked by Debbie Smith from Stratford-upon-Avon: I have a beautiful victorian hallway that is about to be converted to flats, so sadly it has to go! I've tried gentle persuasion with a hammer and scraper but the majoity of the small tiles keep breaking. I had given up and will let the builders do their worst, but just saw your website and though it was worth on last shot for advice!!

TileProf says: Hi Debbie, Once you get a few of them up, the rest can be knocked up from the side with a hammer and chisel, if however this doesnt work it means they are to well bonded and chances are slim of recovering them. Regards Russell at Tile Doctor
