How do I remove vinyl tile from concrete floor?
By lawbrend from Princeton, WV
There's a tool that looks like a wide putty knife that is on a pole about the length of shovel or hoe handle. It lifts the tiles breaking some and can be easily removed. When the blade edge dulls, just resharpen. Should be able to locate this tool at any hardware store.
If it is a smaller area I would suggest the following: First warm the tile with either a hair dryer or a heat gun.
Secondly, using a broad bladed spackle knife pry up the tile.
It works on any surface that vinyl tile is stuck to. Also it greatly reduces the glue sticking to the concrete/wood floor beneath the tile.
