I took up some vinyl tile squares (using a hair dryer to heat them up) from a concrete floor. Now, there's a sticky residue of adhesive left. What's the best way to remove it before using a leveling product and putting down more vinyl?

Also, any advise on the best leveling product?

Thanks

Try going to http://www.sspenviro.com and look at their GoldSolv adhesive remover. I like it because it isnt toxic and it doe not leave a bond inhibiting residue behind after cleanup.

Do a google for Ardex. They make a lot of Self Leveling Cements. I dont know if the ones I use with ceramic tile are appropriate for vinyl also.
