If you've ever tried to remove tile from a floor you probably already know it can be a tricky process. When you first start trying to remove tile you may decide to smash the tile into little pieces and use a broom to brush the mess away. This brute force approach to removing tile will work, but there is a more precise and professional way to do it that isn't any more difficult to do. If you want to learn how to remove tile from a floor, whether it's ceramic tile or not, you'll need a few tools and some patience.

TailHappyTV describes how to remove tile in a short 8 minute video using a chisel and a hammer with a few pieces of safety gear.
