I recently redid all the floors in my home.
The worst area was probably the supply closet.
I had to tile underneath the HVAC unit that was on a stand. I also had to remove the water heater to tile underneath it. I am a very small woman though. I couldn’t lift it by myself. I also didn’t want to damage it in the process. I actually called a plumber to lift it for me. While the guy was there, he informed me that the water tank was actually extremely old. It had maybe a year or two before it quit on me. I figured now was probably the right time to replace it. I hadn’t fully moved into my house yet so I wasn’t reliant on the hot water. It was nice that my plumber could shop around for a good brand and a nice deal on a water heater. I ended up choosing one that was highly rated, brand new and fit in my closet so much better than the old one. It was nice having the space temporarily cleaned out so I could do the tile work. I took advantage of the open space to scrape the popcorn, sand and mud the ceiling. I got it smooth and white. I then painted inside the closet and the stand the HVAC unit sat on. Finally I did a deep clean to ensure everything was in good shape. Now I have a brand new water heater installed with brand new tile floors. I moved into a house that was in great shape for me.
