    Default removing vinyl floor

    We had the vinyl in the bathroom full of water when is cold outside next to the exterior wall. I've decided to remove the base board and isolate the base of the wall. I discovered a crack on the concrete and I had to remove the vinyl to pour some Quikrete. Finally I decided to change the vinyl with vinyl tiles.
    I really don't know what to do right now. The vinyl used was so low quality , I think, it is just paper with a thin plastic over it and I don't know how to clean all the mess after I peel the vinyl from the concrete, it is a mixture of paper and some glue.

    Please give me any advice!

    Get yourself a professional floor scr aper (about $20) and start working on your floor. If it's stubborn, apply heat on the vinyl to soften it.

    Sometimes it's easy and sometimes it's not.
