under the evil

Here I am pulling up the carpet . We got smart and started pulling up six to eight inch strips. It doesn’t pull up easily, as I said before.

That ‘s because the used ALL THE GLUE IN THE WORLD to keep this ugly carpet attached to the floor.
You can see what I mean.

    What, no backaches??!!

    Did you use your mask when pulling this stuff up?

    no backache. my butt muscles are a different story . Even with the six inch strips , It takes my entire body weight to pull the strips up. And Yes, I am using a mask.

    Keep it up – A heat gun might help soften the glue if you have one handy. What are you planning to put down new? If its tile or wood or laminates I would recomend taking up the vinyl as well. Sorry. Feel free to drop me a ling at http://www.handyguyspodcast.com if you need any help as your project progresses.
