Stained concrete


Want to stain my Floors but I have old tile and black adhesive under my carpet. What is the easiest way to remove the adhesive to get a clean floor to stain? Would I be able to put a concrete overlay over the adhesive? I was told it wouldn't work because the overlay won't stick to the adhesive. Suggestions please!

Your going to have to go to plan B on this one.
To stain a concrete floor it has to be perfectly clean, with nothing in the pores of the concrete. Not even paint can be applyed over the old glue.

Would I have to get the adhesive off before I can put the overlay down? Do you have any suggestions on What to use to get the adhesive off?

Will surface grinding get the adhesive out of the pores? Would it be the easiest thing to do?
