Laminate flooring underlay


Hi all,

I'm having the task to lay laminate flooring, but the unfortunate problem is there's carpet underlay glued to the floor boards.
This underlay is been down for years and is causing a lot of problems to remove, could I laminate on top or is this a big no no?

Carpet pads to thick and not dense enough for laminate, it's got to go.
What are you using to remove it?

Hand scraper and a lot of sore fingers! I'm trying to prize it off bit by bit. But it's pulling splinters out of the floor boards too.


Anything you recommend using?
