I did the same thing in my previous house...
Get some knee-pads... it became a very long job - it was a large
kitchen/diner - the method I ended up with was to heat the tile with a blow
lamp and then prise up with a 4" flat scraper.
It you can get hold of a blow lamp that uses a hose and large gas cylinder
that would be the best option... I lost count of how many cannisters I got
One of the quickest ways is to use an ordinary, flat garden spade or square
mouth shovel that you slide between the tile and the floor and the tiles
usually come up fairly easily - removing the old adhesive can be another
matter though :-(
Nothing short of white spirit removed the back gooey stuff ,
I stuck down my ceramic tyles on to it ( with a few layers of PVA )
and they are ok. I did score the surface with an angle grinder though
( made a hell of a mess !)
