Hot and cold flashes

In reply to Removal of Old Lanolium Tile by Julie Rogers on August 9th, 2001 02:04 PM [Go to top of thread]

Two techniques that are somewhat common:

1) putting ice, on the tiles to "freeze" the tile, thus making it and the underlaying adhesive brittle and easier to pop off.

I've never done that, nor have I ever seen it done.

I have seen 2) using a propane torch with a flare fitting to heat the tile and adhesive, which makes it more pliable and somewhat easy to remove using a putty knife of similar tool. It does stink. You may want to ensure good ventilation while you're working, and may even want to wear a HEPA-type maks that works with organics. Wear gloves, as the pliable tile can be very hot.

Just don't burn your house down.
