Removing...

Hi,

I need to remove an indoor/outdoor carpet that is in a breezeway between my house and garage...I was able to tear up the carpet covering this one but this carpet seems to be glued to the cement.........I would like to tile it...but it is stained, smells some.......any ideas????

After you finally get the carpet up, that outdoor adhesive is going to be a bear to scrape up!!!
The adhesive has to come up to set mortar & tile, or your going to have a major failure later.
