Removing Thinset


I removed ceramic tiles from my concrete floor, but the thinset remains. I have used an air scrapper, but the job is really slow and dusty. Is there a better way?

Removing Thinset


You could rent a floor/concrete surface grinder.

There is nothing easy (or fun) when doing what you are doing.
