I have a basement with some plastic or vinyl tile. The tile is cemented onto the floor. I need to remove it all.
I've checked several YouTube videos about this but they only show ideal situations. My situation is terrible! The tiles are cemented onto the concrete so strongly that the only way I can get them up is by ramming a scraper (razor blade type) at the edges, over and over. It takes about ten minutes for each 12"x12" tile. It's incredibly slow and tiring (and monotonous).
There must be a better way. Chemical? Heat? I tried a heat gun but it did nothing to help. This adhesive is very strong and stubborn.
Does anyone know a trick for this?
BTW I sent in a sample to a lab and luckily it is not asbestos.
