Aside: With apologies to Bud and Angus who were more than patient with my earlier question about this loathed flooring material--->I'm back (just like a bad penny).
I have removed both carpet and lino from my floor. Beneath, is a very thin (1-2mm?), very smooth surface that is a dark grey colour....Gypcrete? My dad (circa 1929) thought it look like drywall.
Beneath that, is a lighter coloured more granular surface (10.75mm?) that scrubs away with relative ease with a wire brush and water--->I was scrubbing away spots that had been affected with copious amounts of dog urine. Beneath that, I'm thinking it's hell--->or USB*S*
I had an extremely difficult time removing the lino and as a last resort, saturated it with water for 18 hours---->the lino kept drying up but when I went to scrape it off (the lino), found that a substantial part of the grey surface came off ---->exposing a lighter coloured,more granular surface. Through trial and error, I'm learning that the grey surface does not like water.
Is all of it gypcrete? Is any of it gypcrete? I'm in a 10 (or so) year old condo in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
Opinions, thoughts and suggestions more than welcome.
