Flooring redo

Had to rip up floor in my daughters room due to a leak in the bathroom.

What's next? What's the best way to get this tar up?? TIA

Is that a hardwood floor and are you going to sand and finish the floor or go over the top with something else?

That's concrete. I need to find out how to get the tar up so that whatever we put on top is level..I guess? What you see a little of before you enter the room is hardwood original to the house but that's not what was in the room. That bathroom has Leaked before and caused floor problems so there was some tongue and groove style flooring I pulled out. I'm also trying to figure out what would be best to put down in case we have this problem again.

You can rent them at Home Depot and . you can rent the buffer there too.
They make the diamabrush tools for contrete and for wood floors too.

It is going to take a lot of elbow grease to get that slab clean. As mentioned rent a floor sander and go to town.

The ‘tar’ you are talking about is the old cut back glue they used in the old days. Best way to remove it is to sprinkle dry mortar mix on top of it, a light coat, and get after it with a floor scraper. It’s labor intensive and there is no easy way to do it, short of renting a shot machine of some kind. You could cap the floor with a leveler like ‘ Plani patch ‘ also. Good luck

That looks like tar that was used to hold down wooden screeds for true wood floors. If so, good luck. It is tough.

Google floor mastic remover. There are a lot of options there. If it is black cut back mastic, they will work, maybe the tar as well but unlikely. I can't recommend one, but there are some pro grade solvents that asbestos abatement crews use to remove hot mastic. Don't remember which one is commonly used.

Well I still haven't tackled the project but it still needs to be done. There were true hardwood floors in this room at one time.
Since I'll be the one doing the work I want to get around trying to get the junk up. I think adding some kind of leveler sounds great! Something I can pour and smooth out. I'm going to look into options for this...thanks! Plani patch is where I'll start reading.

There are a ton of self leveling compounds for flooring, but you don't want to add a bunch of extra height to that area of the floor. If possible, you need to try and get as much of the tar/mastic up as possible, then level over it. Good luck. Some of the old stuff that they used wasn't meant to be taken up.........EVER. Sorry.
