Removing Linoleum Flooring - staples??
Part of the subfloor in my bathroom became water logged when a certain daughter of mine decided to take a nice long shower with the door open. I pulled up the linoleum which was terrible and needed to go anyways only to find another layer of linoleum (and a patched piece of subfloor - this must have happened before!). The problem is, this linoleum has staples all over it. Does anyone know why this would be? I am guessing they did it when they put in the newer layer of linoleum? Was it to keep the floor from squeaking? I only want to replace the part of the subfloor that has damage, should I pull out all the staples and start fresh? I am putting in temporary linoleum tiles until my brother can come tile the bathroom for me. Would love to hear any suggestions you have. I am a DIY'er by nature but have never taken on something like this before.
Thanks for your help!
