We decided to replace the mosaic floor tiles in our wet room (2m x 2m). I've removed the tiles, but having difficulty removing the tile adhesive and waterproof sealant below.
I've broken up some of the adhesive to expose the black sealant below, and I've used white spirit to soften the sealant, which seems to work.
I've tried pouring white spirit on the adhesive in the hope that it will soak through to the sealant and soften it, but that didn't work. That's left me having to use a hammer and chisel to take up both little by little which is taking forever.
Does anyone here have a better suggestion of how this can be done quicker?

It isn't an easy job for Pro tilers either as there isn't an easy way unfortunately, patience and time but I've used a wall paper stripper in past jobs and it's helped, give it a go 👍
