We are on to the next and much harder stage of refurbing the oak floor and we need advice please.
The remaining small area in the dining room and hallway has linoleum glued onto it. Removing the actual linoleum is easy, but the paper that remains and the glue is much harder.
Our expert floor lady said to try dampening the glue to see if it's water soluble, we have and we don't think it is. Otherwise she said we will have to strip it with turps or paint stripper. She will then sand the area and it will look fine after the finish is applied.
My question is - anybody out there ever done this and got any advice, quicker methods or tricks you can share with us please?
