澳洲Australia property Lino | Sydney


在澳大利亚 Hi Guys, Ive found a property that has mentioned two payments coming up of $1400 to apparently top up the admin fund and 2 have just been paid. Im looking at a financial statement (basically a balance sheet) for the strata and its all a bit Hi all, I currently have a PPOR and 10K cash in the bank which I plan to use as a deposit for a IP early next year. Is it possible for me to place this into my PPOR loan and then redraw the 10K when Im ready for the IP and then claim the int


Has anyone ripped up Lino before? How hard was it? What did you do/use to get it off with? What about the glue, how did you get that off?

We have 4 rooms with lino and 3 of those rooms will have polished floor boards and 1 tiled. Underneath the lino is floorboards. Bathroom, Kitchen, Laundry and Toilet.

Ripping up the lino in the laundry was easy. It had lino glued to masonite and the masonite was nailed to the floorboards. We were able to slide the shovel under the first few tiles/masonite and hand lift the rest.

Ripping up the lino in the toilet not so easy. It had lino glued to masonite and the masonite glued to the floorboards. Using a shovel got most of it all up except for the glue, little sticky now.

Ripping up the lino in the bathroom was a nightmare. It had lino glued to another layer of lino which was glued to the floorboards. We were able to get the 1st layer of with the shovel but the 2nd layer just wouldn't budge. Because it was a small room, we thought, stuff it, for the back breaking effort why don't we just replace the floorboards. So we did.

The Kitchen is like the bathroom. Unfortunately, this is a larger room and we won't be replacing the floorboards just because.

We're stuck!! Any suggestions would be good. Thanx.

Depends on the type of glue
I've used 2 different approaches:
1. Sticky- heat gun and scraper
2. Solid- floor sander with rough paper. This chews sum paper but is much quicker

Anyone have a recommendation for cheap lino outlet in Sydney. I am going to demolish my house in a couple of years but would like a presentable kitchen floor in the meantime. Thanks.

For removing lino, a floor stripper from Kennards may work OK. Check out the thread Removing Cork Tiles for some discussion, and even a picture of the beast (I mean the picture of the floor stripper, not of me).

Hiya, If the bottom layer won't budge with a spade, hire a vinyl lifter from your local hire shop. If you do manage to remove the vinyl (lino) and you need to get the glue off the floor, don't mess around with trying to burn it off or anything like that - it takes too long. Get the floorsander to sand it off. If you're going to do it yourself, you might have to start with 16 grit paper but it will come off.

Good luck:)

Alternative suggestion...

As someone mentioned in the thread I've already quoted- is there a chance just to lay an alternative floor on top of the existing lino?

Hi all,
I had the same glued to floor problem myself once except mine was araldite'd down. Got as much as I could lever using a strong spatula then used a small belt sander & LOTS of sanding belts. Took quite a while but be patient the beautiful polished floor you will get afterwards is worth it.
Cheers Brenda

Yes quite often what people do here instead of taking old lino up (and they haven't thought of or don't want polished floors) is lay thinboard over the old lino and lino over that.

Apparently you're suppose to do that anyway if you're laying lino over tongue and groove because if you glue directly to the floor after a while the lines from the t&g show through into your lino.

I'd probably go for polished floors though, because it will still probably work out cheaper and the wood look goes with any colour decor.
