There are a lot of tasks that are difficult to accomplish, and will require patience and care to complete. Removing linoleum flooring is one of these tasks but quite easy if you prepare the flooring area appropriately. Prior to doing anything else, you must make sure that you know just what type of flooring you have underneath the linoleum. For the most part, a concrete floor will make the task of removing the linoleum a lot easier, whereas, a wooden floor needs to be treated with a lot more care and attention. In order to check which type of flooring you have, you should remove the baseboard and lift up a corner of the flooring.
