Remove Flooring like a Pro
Are you reflooring your kitchen, bathroom or den and removing old vinyl sheet goods so you can begin? Here’s how the pros remove big sections of flooring — both fully adhered and perimeter-bonded vinyl goods — without wrestling with huge chunks at one time.
Large sections of old vinyl flooring are more easily managed by cutting them into 12-inch-wide strips across the entire length or width of a room.
Then lift up one end, wrap it around a cardboard tube or a dowel rod or a piece of pipe (anything round), and roll the tube across the floor, peeling and rolling up the easy-to-handle strip of vinyl as you go. That’s how to do it like a pro.
