So my DH and I are in the middle of a kitchen remodel! We're replacing the floor in the kitchen, dining room, pantry, mudroom and laundry room with tile and we're going to paint the cabinets and replace the counter tops. We're doing the work ourselves to avoid going broke! The floor which used to be in the kitchen and dining room was wood, but it wasn't laid right (story of this house...), so it was very warped and lifted and stained - long story short, it needed to go. We pulled that up on Saturday - in a 250 square foot area, there were a total of FOUR spots of glue holding the floor down (each one about the size of a baseball). Niiiice. Obviously, that floor was EASY to remove, so we're now at the linoleum below it. Not so easy. We've removed 3/4 of the floor in the kitchen/dining room, but there's still considerable adhesive on the floor. Any good tips for removing linoleum adhesive? We are currently using a scraper for this purpose from Home Depot. We would rather not use solvent because of the fumes and we tried boiling water, but it didn't seem to help much. We're about ready to take out the torch and just melt it all... Oh, these brilliant people also decided to add a wall in the kitchen - right on TOP of the existing flooring!! We're trying to decide what the best tool would be to cut away the wood floor from under this wall without doing too much damage. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!!
