Removing ceramic tile
 
On floor and walls in bathroom. The mud bed is about 50 years old. And about 2 inches thick on floor.

What suggestion to remove from walls with mesh and mortar and Sheetrock.

I use one of these with 2" wide bit.
I also use a 4-1/2 right angle grinder with a diamond wheel to cut into the corners and through the wire mesh.

More info----What are you doing with the floors? can you just tile over the old floor?

As to the walls----fans--tarps---dust masks and a big hammer---tin snips and other primitive tools of destruction are required.
