Every homeowner knows that when it comes to interior or exterior home projects, it always pays to be prepared. Both the safety and work aspect of this task needs to be in order, because if not, you are vulnerable to doing a shoddy job and exposing yourself into harm’s way. To avoid such situations from occurring, you need to make the smart choice. Before the project proper, you have to know what you are about to do, and have the right materials at hand, in order to accomplish each task with speed and ease.   

From all the kinds of home improvement projects, removing your tiles is one of the most dangerous. Because of its material, one mistake might send a loose shard flying across the room – injuring anyone it comes in contact with – or expose you to dust, affecting your lungs and eyes. So if you are planning to repair or revamp your home’s tiles, you need to have the following tools and gear, before you get started.
