Removing Carpet Glue Left in Tiles

Q: I have indoor/outdoor carpeting over tile on my backdoor entrance space and down the basement steps. Is there a way I can remove the carpet and also the glue that may be left on the tiles???

A: Using a heat gun, heat the carpet and scrape it off the tiles with a sharp 2-inch metal spackle knife or paint scraper. To remove any remaining glue residue apply Shell Busey’s It’s Just That Easy Paint Remover and scrub with a synthetic abrasive pad. Complete the project by washing the area with an all-purpose cleaner. Rinse well and allow drying.
