I will be removing the linoleum( and the adhesive/glue that held the
linoleum in place) from a kitchen floor in a home built in 1924. Underneath
the linoleum is a oak hardwood floor that I will be having professionally
refinished. I know that because of asbestos I need to wear a quality
filtering device and I also plan to work work goggles to protect my eyes.
What techniques/tools/etc will work best for removing the linoleum and the
adhesive? Both need to be completly removed our the floor refinishing
company will not go ahead on refinishing the floors.
Also I hope to be able to do the removal in such a way that it does not
damage the underneath wood floor.
Some scratching,etc of the floor would be okay(since the refinishing will
involve sanding/etc), but any deep gouging,etc would be a problem.
Thanks for all of your assistance,
