Demo Vinyl Flooring
Measure out 10 in. from the wall and score the vinyl flooring with a utility knife. Then repeat scoring every 10 in. all the way across the room. Steer a power scraper down the scored swath and let it do all the work. Let the stripped vinyl roll up in front of the scraper blade.
