What is the best way of removing two layers of IKO bitumen paint from a concrete shed base? I have tried dissolving it with white spirit, but this is very time-consuming and arduous. Your help would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks.

Mechanical removal is the only effective way to remove bitumen. However, this may still leave small amounts of residue on the top surface of the concrete and can leave the surface in need of smoothing, etc. after work is completed.

Dissolving or treating with thinners is not advisable as this can lead to several issues, notably contaminated run-off and/or issues of disposal of remnant indeterminate mixtures of liquids.
