Tile to floor stain

Im taking up the tile in my house and I am having an issue getting the thin set off the floor. I have rented a scrapper and it still has a thin layer on the floor that will not come up. Has anybody had these issues before? Any helpful information would be great.

I have used an angle grinder with a diamond cutting wheel to remove thinset. Its creates a lot of dust so wear a respirator and use some drop cloths. Be careful because that wheel can easily grind right into concrete as well.

Rent a floor buffer. Some places carry a wire wheel attachment just fr that purpose. It will remove the mastic and glue.

You can use a soy based gel or a grinder.

Jack hammer with the scraper attachment was the way I did mine. Work good.

if you are putting new tile, don't waste time with it and put a thicker layer of thinset over the old instead.
