I'm new here so if I do something wrong please let me know!
I have a new-to-me(not at all new though) house, with a 14x12 ish kitchen. It has linoleum flooring that has been partially removed (about a 3x6 section).
There are several layers of various substances on top of the subfloor. A green felt-like layer, a gray paper-like layer, some old looking linoleum, and finally some newer looking vinyl flooring.
My question is this, should we pick up and finish the removal process, or cover the floor with something. I've heard of putting down some 1/4" or 1/8" substance on top of what you have currently, but I'm worried that would cause it to be uneven or look strange.
If we should finish the removal process, are there any chemicals that would aid in removing the felt-like substance without destroying the subfloor or making it unusable for potential future vinyl flooring.
Either way, thanks for any advice, in advance!
