Is it ok to have a thin layer of that adhesive/glue on the foundation prior
to vinyl floor installation? I've used a big scraper to get off alot of it.
Theres still a thin layer though. Its mostly level with the foundation
Just wondering if they'll give me crap about that before I call them to give
me an estimate on the price of the flooring?
I was thinking of trying really hard to get arid of all of it... But I hear
adhesive remover , floor sanding , and floor grinding sometimes will still
not get arid of all of it. None of which I have tried yet.. and not really
wanting to waste my money on it.
Not a big issue provided the surface is flat and smooth.
But if you have any "bumps" they will transmit through
the new vinyl, look and feel bad, and cause uneven wear
and premature failure. Do whatever is necessary to get
the surface smooth -- install a layer of plywood or
similar if you have to.

I called the rental company today and they said it would be useless if I
used a floor grinder for this. Because it causes friction and something
about overheating every few steps. Something like that.
Was it a special disc u have to use?
