What's the best/easiest way to remove vinyl sheet flooring. I have tried scraping it up but it keeps tearing and the backing stays stuck to the floor. It is set on concrete.

Thanks

When I pulled up my vinyl floor, it was a huge pain. The easiest way I found out to do it was use a heat gun, but be very careful not to catch the vinyl on fire. Keep it away about 5 inches or more and use a metal scraper. The glue is very difficult to remove but once it is hot enough, it becomes gooey. I hope this helps.
