We pulled up the carpet in the basement today - I had hoped there would be pristine concrete underneath.
Not! Something has been glued down in the past - it's black, and sticky, and yuck. Very handsome floor man says he can clean it - of course it will take three days and all sorts of evil, toxic substances to melt the goo before he can scrape it away.
So - what shall plan B be? Not hardwood - it's a basement - generally dry, but still, things could get damp. Laminate? I don't think so - it's just pretending to be wood or tile or cork or whatever. I'm thinking tile might be my best choice. Any opinions out there?
