    Looks like someone’s laid a floating floor over the top of concrete...including the old carpet!

    It doesn't look like carpet. I see some yellowish rubber / plastic bottom of the material (My door mat also have the yellowish bit). I am not tradesperson, so not sure carpet comes with yellowish rubber / plastic.

    I’d just rip out lay celotex and float 22mm chipboard on top
