The sanitation costs for tiled rooms after a burst pipe or water damage often soar due to the need for re-tiling. This means high additional costs for insurance companies and house owners. Although only a few tiles may have been damaged, a complete re-tiling is often necessary in the sanitation because the old tiles are out of stock and no longer available.
SysTeSan, a company that specializes in the sanitation of fire and water damage, offers an innovative device, its efficient Tile Set, which can minimize sanitation costs by nondestructive removal of the tiles. The Tile Set is an attractive solution, especially for sanitation contract partners of insurance companies, because it enables low-cost sanitation. More and more landlords and housing administrators are also relying on craft enterprises who offer a cost-effective sanitation with the Tile Set in the case of damage. The centrepiece of the Tile Set is the powerful ELECTRON hot air blower from Leister, the world market leader for plastic welding and hot air appliances from Switzerland.
How the Tile Set works:
After separating the tile joint and assembling a heating template (variably adjustable from 10 to 30 cm in any rectangular form) to the suitable tile size, the Leister ELECTRON hot air blower comes into operation. It heats up the tile in a very short time. Due to the heat expansion of the different materials the tile can be removed from the base without being damaged. “We chose Leister as the supplier for the hot air blower because quality and long life are also the most important characteristics of our products,“ says Reiner Fohrmann, Managing Director of SysTeSan. “We have not had any complaints about the hot air blower since we have been offering the Tile Set.” The tile set removes more than 90% of the tiles without destroying them – a remarkable success rate.
