We are removing old ceramic tile from a cement floor. There is a sandy substance underneath.

Do I have to remove the cement or can I just sweep this substance off and continue installing ceramic floor?

    Underneath the tile should be thinset, a type of mortar consistent largely of sand. Or do you mean underneath the concrete floor is something? – wallyk Sep 15 '13 at 17:20
