Remove Outdoor Carpet Off Concrete & Prepare For New Surface - April 24th 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 It's Just That Easy water based paint remover available at Windsor Plywood stores. 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.
It's just that easy!
