Lino tiles
we have i believe they are like a lino or plastic kinda tile on our basement floor. ALot of them just lifted off the concrete easily with an ice scraper but some of them are glued down really well. Is there any easy way of getting these tiles off the floor?? Thanks in advance

Have you tried a heat gun?

You can try it. Don't block the air flow though or it will blow an internal thermal fuse.

Home Depot or Lowe's you can rent an electric tile chipper.
