I have a problem that was addressed on this message board about a year ago. It has to do with old rubber carpet matting turning into a very hard material that has adhered itself to the origional wood floor. I would like to refinish the floor but I have to get this material up first.
I tried the mineral spirts route and that did not work very well. The thinner does not seem to be soaking through the material far enough to make a difference.
I've also tried Sentinel 626 which works great on adhesives but not on this old rubber.
I've seen messages on this board regarding a product called "old and hard" but I can't find any web pages that give me a clue where to find it and my local stores have been no help.
Can anyone shed new light on this problem or suggest a product that specifically will help me get rid of this mutated rubber mat. Also, anyone that has info regarding the mfg. of "Old and Hard" would be appreciated.
