An elderly relative either didn't realize or ignored the fact that the
supply line to her toilet was dripping...maybe for over a year.
Anyway, the tile floor cracked, the grout wore away, and I ended up
ripping the tile up as well as replacing the flexi-pipe.
We laid down one of those DIY "wall-to-wall" bathroom carpets for the
winter, but I'd really like to cover the plywood with linoleum now
it's summer and the adhesive won't stink up the house. My question:
1) What if any chemical solvent can remove black mold without
permanently sinking into the subflooring (this bathroom is a "powder
room" off a master bedroom, where the elderly relative sleeps); and 2)
Will linoleum placed over old tile adhesive be too lumpy? I know the
answer to this second question sounds obvious, but I'm wondering if I
can buy some adhesive thick enough to even out the ancient "stripes"
from the groat/adhesive float.
Thanks for posts or email--or helpful links.
