I was wondering if anyone had some great advice for how best to remove a vinyl or rubber baseboard. I tried pulling it away from the cabinetry with a pry bar, but there's so much adhesive that it won't budge much.
Should I use a heat gun? If so, what would I do exactly? Pry some base away and shoot the heat down, or heat the entire base and peel?
Thanks for your help!
You can definitely use a heat gun. I would just heat the surface of the base. The residual heat from the surface would soften the adhesive underneath. Just be careful not to concentrate on one area too long..wouldn't want to damage the cabinets.
Thanks, floorguy! I will definitely get a heat gun this weekend. I wonder if the heat might damage the Pergo flooring under the baseboard? Or, do I just aim the heat at the center of the base, and avoid the flooring?
