We recently purchased a beautiful old victorian built 1905 with
the interior intact. The kitchen had vinyl tile laid on top of the original oak floor. Tar paper was laid down on top of the oak and the tiles on top on that. We have removed the tile but the tar paper has glued itself to the floor. Have tried scraping, heat gun, water, water and vinegar, wall paper remover, wd-40, various cleaners with poor results. We do not want to stain the floor with the tar if possible. Any suggestions to a reasonable method? We may just have to sc****.
Thank you in advance.
