Bvflooring
In my laundry room I have some old vinyl flooring that I cant get up. I have tried pulling it up but it leaves some old black paper stuff. Under the vinyl is particle board. My question is: instead of removing the old vinly flooring , could I just put down a layer of 1/8" hard board over the vinyl. We are going to put new vinyl on the floor. Any help would be appreciated.

Depending on the age of your vinyl, you may be exposing yourself to asbestos that was used in lots of old vinyl. You may want to check with an asbestos firm to be safe. If you have particle board in a laundry room as your subfloor, you could be asking for trouble if the washer overflows. Repeated wetting of particle board usually causes it to disintegrate and turn into dust.
