:eek: I got another 'round-2-it', I am taking out 35 ft2 of old asphalt tile, and replace it with ceramic tile. Concrete floor put down 45 years ago, I got up the old tile, scraped up most of the black goo! How do i prepare the concrete before putting down the tile? Thanks!!

I just scraped up as much of the black adhesive with a large razor knife. No other preparation. I just washed floor with water only. I used Flexbond. No problems.
