How to remove Tapcon concrete screw

I am contemplating securing an area rug to an outside sundeck using Tapcon concrete screws and fender washers but have never used them before. Can this type of screw be backed out if I want to remove the rug????

Yes, just like any screw. Don't over tighten it initially or use an impact driver or you risk stripping the holes. Hand tight is all it needs. Use the right Tapcon bit and blow or suck the dust out before inserting the screw. Careful with your eyes if you blow it out.
