Sucesses in Removing Linoleum Flooring?

Posted by Julie on March 9th, 2000 09:40 PM

My home is 11 years old and I must remove my existing well-worn linoleum kitchen floor in preparation for a new floor of the same type. Also, the subfloor is full of squeaks and must be screwed down. I'm trying to save money by not putting down a new subfloor over the existing lino. Has anyone had any sucess in removing this type of floor and what did they use? I've read on this bulletin board about using such things as vinegar and hot water or eucalyptus oil to disolve the adhesive. Is there a specific adhesive remover that I could buy at a Home Depot (Ontario, Canada). Were you able to get all the adhesive off and down to a smooth finish? If I can get a satisfactory result, I don't mind using a "little elbow grease". Thanks for any help.
