Angry Removed Tile Floor - Cleaning up Mess...

What is the easiest process to get up this mess? Right now I'm using a chisel to get all the cement off the floor. Any other ways I may be missing? I'm going to put down a vinyl floor, and I know the subfloor must be as smooth as possible. YIKES....this is going to take a while.

Try a floor scraper that is designed for the job. Typically a big box store will have these also, maybe even in tool rental.

Yes.

Wood or concrete floor?

If wood easier to remove the wood it's on or pour a SLC over it all, or install an underlayment over it once you get it down to the residue.

For concrete, use the pour on leveler.

Hi there,

It's wood. What is SLC. And will it ruin the wood floor? I don't want to replace the wood, because it's in good condition.

Thanks.
