Removing vinyl from subfloor

A heat gun, scraper, and lots of patience is usually required to remove vinyl. If the vinyl was installed prior to the 1980s, there is a good possibility that the vinyl and the black adhesive contain asbestos. If this is the case, then the floor should be encapsulated with a new underlayment material if you are installing new vinyl.
