The 30 year old tile in my laundry room is cracking and coming loose, so I
would like to replace with some simple to install peel & stick type vinyl
tiles. The floor is cement and I can see swirls of black glue from the old
tile. I assume I have to get the old glue off and have the floor as smooth
as possible before placing the new tiles. What do you recommend for removing
the glue and cleaning the floor and special scraper tool? The room also
holds my furnace and hot water heater on one side if that matters (I will
probably leave the old tile under the heater for now...); I'm guessing this
would stop me from placing any type of under layment. Is there something I
should "paint" over the old floor (to cover up any glue remnants) before
attaching the new tile?
