Recently purchased a home to fix and flip (2nd one) and found a gem under the carpet - beautiful hardwood! The carpet lifted quite nicely in the hallway and 2 rooms, but then I got to the living room...i don't know wth happened to this carpet, but it is STUCK to the floor. I'm not talking about little spots or patches. Literally the entire pad seems to have melted to the wood. I'm at a loss - I've tried cleaners, goop be gone, sanding with a little hand sander (which just ripped the exposed wood up and didn't remove the padding) and after an entire day of it, my back feels about to break. I may just have to put flooring over it, but I'd hate to leave the floor in this shape. Please someone tell me they've seen this before and can offer something to help!
