I have 51 years square floor tile that. Is coming undone and I have hundred of them coming loose. I have some kind of particle board underneath. Help?!

    Try a hair dryer to help soften the mastic. If that doesn’t work call a flooring company and ask how they would do it.

    The adhesive is failing and they are popping off. A stiff putty knife, pry bar, long hadle ice scraper should pop they out. There may be damage to the particle board subfloor where the glue is still holding.

    Depends on your goal- if you are looking to retain that floor -re- adhere the original tiles if possible- if looking to replace -and removing them all is impossible ... patch the removed tiles and put a thin new subfloor over the whole floor and then proceed with whatever flooring you want- not that difficult that you can’t do it- just labor- good luck
