Customer Questions & Answers

How well does this clean-up and what do you use.

I removed old vinyl tiles from a concrete floor and this product was recommended to remove the adhesive. Issue is I want to seal the floor after the cleanup prior to putting down new flooring and any product residue will need to be removed. How well does this product clean up and what should be used to do so?
Asked by: Gene
Soap and water cleans this up just fine. DIY sites say to use muriatic acid to clean the concrete before sealing so I didn't worry too much about the clean up.

Will this remove adhesive left on studs after taking down dry wall?

The adhesive's been there 25 years and it's thick in spots.
Asked by: Anonymous
Not exactly. Mean Klean is designed to attack Portland cement and other cementitious material. Probably not the best solution for removing adhesive.

Probably not. Mean Klean isn't formulated for removing glue and other adhesives.

Will I be able to paint my concrete floor after using this product to remove glue from the carpet...

Will I be able to paint my concrete floor after using this product to remove glue from the carpeting just removed?
Asked by: Cori
Yes, I would expect that you could paint the concrete after removing the carpet glue. Of course, you would want to make sure the concrete surface is clean and free from any residue or debris.

128 oz. Adhesive Remover is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked Great After trying another adhesive remover that didn't work any better than warm soapy water, was leery of putting out more cash for potentially the same results. So glad I did. This stuff brought off the old carpet glue with hardly any scraping. I did use plastic cover on some areas, seemed to help when temps were higher during the day. Only a few places needed a second coat, but that is mostly because those areas had thicker layers of glue and I didn't always wait a full 15 minutes for remover to set. Almost finished with one 200sf room, will see how it works in other room that has area of linoleum backing still glued down in addition to more carpet glue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best I've found This is the best I have found for removing floor adhesive. It is very messy if you are not methodical. I tried plastic cover and found it more of a hassle than a help. You must do a small area at a time so the stuff doesn't dry out, then its worthless. A tip, remove one row of tile, then use Klean Strip to clean up that one row. Then go to the next. This way you will not track glue all over the place and have to go over it several times like I did. Use a roller, roll on sort of thick. Wait a few minutes and use a scraper/putty knife. Scoop into a dustpan and then into a bucket. Best way I found to do it, and through lots of trial and error.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Miracle Amazing I rarely leave a review but I am making an exception. I have old linoleum with paper backing and adhesive on concrete. I have bought several floor scrapers and razor blade scrapers reciprocating saw scrapers. With hot soapy water. This did pretty much nothing but make me sore and tired. I was ready to rent a floor grinder that HD recommended. As a last resort I bought this adhesive remover. I just followed the directions. Except i found you can do a little more area maybe 12 sq ft at a time. 1st I removed the to layer of linoleum scoring with utility knife then tear off the top layer. Then just pour 3-4 cups on the paper mastic stuff spread it with a roller. WAIT 15-20 minutes no less not much more. Covering with plastic seems optional depending on the temps. Then easily scrape the treated area. The stuff comes up so easy it will make your day. Then wash with soapy water and a mop. The vapors didn't seem too bad with good ventilation. Of course always wear good gloves. Then smile and have a beer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes Quick Work of Adhesive I purchased this product this morning, based on the reviews here, . By 2:00pm my bathroom floor was free of adhesive. I covered the first portion of the floor with plastic (as per the instructions) and 15 minutes later the old adhesive scraped off with very little effort. I did the next section without the plastic. More effort was required and the result wasn't as good as the first section. I redid the second section and added a few more square feet to finish the room, covered with plastic, and the adhesive came up with little effort. The moral of the story is "follow the instructions and you will be very pleased with the result".

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product worked for me I purchased this to help remove some old glue from under some old linoleum flooring. The flooring was so hard to get off that the linoleum came up with the adhesive still stuck to the floor. I was trying to save the hardwood underneath. The Kleen Strip Adhesive Remover worked very well to remove the adhesive and save the wood. It took a couple of really thick applications but most of the glue came off (at least enough to be able to sand the rest). If faced with a similar situation, I will think of this product and would use it again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of money Don't bother. I tried using this stuff to get some mastic off the concrete but it didn't work well at all. We followed directions exactly but my experience was negative with this product. Invest in a very sharp heavy duty scraper and sharpen frequently.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great-Follow Directions-See Comments for a Tip Project-Removing thick carpet mastic on concrete floor (8-10 years old) Process-Lay it on the mastic thicker than you think you should Time-Sweet spot is approx 30 minutes (temp of floor may require longer) Scrape-Use large blade, long handle scrapper to remove lots of material Area-work in smallish (ie the length of your arm) sections that you can remove in 30 minutes Tip- There will be remaining mastic that did not come off easily. Put second thick application on those areas and use a stainless steel scouring pad (and thick rubber gloves). Use the scouring pad to remove all the remaining residue. You can add some HOT HOT water as you scrub (after the 30 minute cure time) to help lubricate the scouring pad and to drive some of the remover around to further remove mastic. Rinse pad often, use rags or shop vac to suck up watery glue off floor. Final Step- rinse floor with clean water, let dry. Bottom Line- This is one of the worst jobs to tackle (homeowner or professional). You can rent big machines that make a huge mess ($700 per week rental), you can pay big bucks for eco friendly the end of the day, you will need to do 2-3 applications depending on how clean you want floor and scrub the floor on your hands and knees to get it all off. If you plan to stain concrete, you may need to to really spend alot of time scrubbing off mastic. We will be installing Karndean loose lay flooring and we did 2 applications and scrubbed entire floor with steel wool scrubber. Be patient, let the product do its job and find the Time to Cure "Sweetspot". Good luck and make sure you have a cold six pack on ice and ready to go. That first beer will never taste sweeter!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Remove floor adhesive I was removing a linoleum floor in a bathroom. I had the top layer of linoleum removed with the adhesive and the underneath part of the linoleum remaining. I applied the adhesive remover . I applied a thin coat and let it set for 15 minutes. I came back with a 4" inch blade razor scraper and the adhesive and linoleum backing came off rather easily. The concrete floor was ready for the new tile. I will definitely continue to use this product on these type of projects. I did not cover the adhesive remover with plastic after it was applied.
