... than down in my basement, with a 4” razor scraper, removing GOK what adhesive from the concrete floor in preparation for Thursday, when the installer comes to put new linoleum down.
When I bought my condo, a full bath was already built in the basement, but it had cheap shag carpet, a toilet a raccoon wouldn’t wash his food in, an old partially-rotting cabinet, and a $5 faucet. I pulled up the toilet to find that the flange had snapped off long ago and water had leaked for who knows how long. I then tried taking up the carpet to find it had been glued to the padding, which was glued to the concrete floor. The cabinet/faucet came out in about two minutes, and I only had to remove one screw.
So now I scrape and scrape and scrape…
You know, I’d much rather be sanding.
