Remove outdoor carpet off concrete & Prepare for new surface
April 24, 2007
Q: Is there a product that will remove the old glue and remnants of outdoor carpeting from the concrete on my balcony? I would assume there must be some sort of product that can be applied to get rid of the adhesive left behind after we pull up the carpet. We are planning to finish it off with Tech Stone Granite.
A: To remove the balance of carpet tuffs use a rented heat gun (not a hair dryer) and scrape off with a metal paint scraper. To remove any residual adhesive that is left behind use my Itís Just That Easy water based paint remover available at Windsor Plywood stores. If you have trouble finding the product call the distributor Twin Maple Marketing at 1-800-663-8898 and ask where it is available in your area. You can also try to remove the remaining sticky residue with contact cement solvent. After removing the residue rinse the area well with warm water.
