Removing lino from floorboards

Hey there!

 

I'm in the infancy of a reno, so will hopefully be getting lots of handy tips from the community here.

 

My partner and I recently pulled up some of the lino in the kitchen/dining area to see what the condition of the floorboards were underneath.

 

Pretty excited with what we uncovered (although not sure if I should be worried about the darker stains in the 2nd photo)57882454_1229318130552223_3247169320735735808_n.jpg57162558_323857681861006_3965296670194794496_n.jpg

 

Any tips on how to remove this more easily? It's quite an effort pulling it up from the floorboards. It's also left a really sticky residue that I'm unsure as to how to remove

 

Any advice would be great!

Hi @jsuyat,

 

Apologies that you didn't receive a reply to your post while I was absent from Workshop. 

 

I can see why you would be excited - your floorboards look beautiful. You are really lucky! 

 

Let me tag resident flooring expert @PJA to see if he has some suggestions for you about removing the glue.
