A: If this is a polyurethane adhesive, such as Bostik’s Best, they also have a remover that will dissolve even dried adhesive. Don’t get it between the boards. If it is a different type of adhesive, you may need to contact the manufacturer for advice.
The carpenters left a glue residue on the floors
Q imported from our old site, Face Lift Floors: We recently had hardwood installed in our home. The carpenters left a glue residue on the floors which have made them dull. We have tried washing the floors, but are having little success.
Is there a product that will take the glue off and won’t hurt the floors?
A: You could try some warm water on a piece of cloth and a lot of elbow grease. I would call the carpenters who put the glue there and ask them to fix it.
