Subject:
adhesive remover?

Bruce, a MN Galoot
In hunting down the source of a mildew smell in our basement, we found that mold has started growing under the sheet vinyl flooring in the laundry room. We are pulling it up, but some parts have been glued down, and we want to get even the old vinyl adhesive stripped from the concrete floor. Scraping doesn't get it all, and we need to get it all up before any remediation efforts will be totally successful.

Is there a solvent that can remove vinyl flooring adhesive? It's a a little over 20 years old.

Thanks.
