concrete floor prep. for ceramic tile after removing linoleum


Posted by Darryl Hitchings on February 1st, 1999 10:56 AM

I want to make sure my floor is prepped right before I lay the tile. Do I need to get absolutely all the adhesive off the concrete? Or just smooth it well? Adhesive removers aren't working well. I resorted to a wire wheel brush. It is smooth now, but light brown spots remain where glue still remains. If I need to get it all off, I might get it all off in another 6 hours. This is too much work. Also, small pits in concrete occurred while using brush. Do these spots need to be filled prior to spreading thin-set down? Thanks
