I've got 2 cork floors which need removing. Last time I removed cork
tiles by peeling/prying them off with a scraper (using a hammer for
additional force) - this took ages and was v hard work... If anyone
knows an easier way of doing this, I'd be VERY grateful.
It will do much more than help the knees and back; it transforms the
scraping operation from a 'single-wrist' job to a 'two-arm' job - it's a
whole new ball game. Similar benefit to simply adding a broom handle to
a paint roller!
I don't think cork melts, unless I'm misreading the post? And yeah,
burning them would make quite a mess... Thanks for the ideas though;
the fire option might be more tempting after the first couple of hours
A similar thread came up about a week ago. Someone suggested a steam
iron on full melted the glue and made it much easier to lift them. I
thought I wall paper steam might do a similar job. It's worth a shot I
You could rent one of these:
Last w/e we put a 175kg steel beam in the wall which took 5 blokes and
several pairs of brown trousers so now I'm into hiring absolutely everything
that could possibly help with anything.
