Removing Ceramic Tile and Cement Board

I have a customer wants me to tear out her old floor. It's ceramic tile, laid on top of 1 inch thick cement sheets re-enforced with steel mesh.

Problem is she wants to leave the cupboards in place. They're nice cupboards and she has a granite counter that I don't want to start messing with.

So question is how to tear out the old tile without destroying the cupboards in the process.

Any advice would be appreciated.

You're obviously not a tile setter, maybe a handyman? Tell her to hire a real tile setter so that there will be little or no damage done to her house.

Yikes, cement sheets with steel mesh.

There was a reason I didn't touch this one. I was trying to be nice.

Hey everyone, if the homeowner had asked that question, "It's ceramic tile, laid on top of 1 inch thick cement sheets re-enforced with steel mesh." I would have explained or asked more questions. BUT, when it's someone doing work for a customer, I wanna call the Tile Police and ask to see a license.
