Victorian Tile covered in asphalt / bitumen

Asked by Clive atkinson from Kettering: I have a victorian tiled floor covered with about 10mm of asphalt/bitumen - is it possible to remove it without damaging the tiles? We are prepared to tackle it ourselves if its possible.

TileProf says: These areas are usually Sand blasted first to get rid of the Bitumen, a hammer and chisel is not going to do it i'm afraid. Russell Taylor Tile Doctor Ltd
