Glue Residue from Carpet Tape

Q: I am having a real problem removing the glue residue from double sided carpet tape stuck to asphalt tiles. How can I solve this problem?

A: Try using a heat gun or hair dryer to warm the tape making it easier to peel off. You can then remove the remaining sticky residue with contact cement solvent. After removing the residue rinse the area well with warm water.
