So.........is that a question? What are you doing to "re-do" the floor?

This is a weird post for some reason.

You need to rent a scarifier and remove all the paint and sealer first.

NO Chemicals.

RD is correct. All previous coatings must be removed by mechanical means. Sand and shot blasting is also an option.

NO chemicals.
