    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

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