We first had to tear up two layers of previous laminate.
The next step is getting all of this glue up.
To get the glue up, Jamie has had to boil water and then scrap it off. If you scrap it dry, the cement will also come up.
He then wet vacs the water and glue up. It is really messy and nasty. Tomorrow we are moving our major appliances out of the kitchen so that we can get all of the old flooring up. I guess we will be eating out for the next week!
