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?

Answer: 
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.

Answer: 
Soap and water should do it. I poured a bit of water over the area I had just scraped and mopped it up. It seemed to do the trick. Adding soap to the mixture would only improve the result and add a safety factor.

Just use water. Water neutralizes it. Hose it off or spray it off when done.

Answer: 
The Adhesive Remover can be cleaned up with soap and water, but mineral spirits or paint thinner will cut it even better. As long as the remover is cleaned up before it dries on the surface you won't have any problem putting a sealer on after the adhesive removal job.

Answer: 
Not exactly. Mean Klean is designed to attack Portland cement and other cementitious material. Probably not the best solution for removing adhesive.

Hello Jo!
Yes, this product can be used to remove the adhesive on your studs. You may have to use it more than once to get off the thick adhesive.

Answer: 
No, the rug will need to be pulled up first, then the Adhesive Remover can be used to take up the glue. To remove the rug I'd try a hair drier or a heat gun to soften up the glue.

Answer: 
Hello avarose!
This adhesive remover simply re-wets the adhesive.
If the rug is porous, you may be able to wet the exposed surface and that may work through the rug enough to get the rug off the cement patio.
When you get the rug off, you may have to apply the product again to remove the remaining adhesive.

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 24 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. October 22, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works but wear protective gear Purchased this to take carpet glue off cement floor. This stuff had been on for over 15 years. I bought heavy duty gloves like the ones used by Walter White while making meth. Good thing I did, because I wore a short sleeve shirt and I got it on my arm by mistake. It immediately started to burn as if my arm was melting. Got to stop hurting by pouring milk on it. Also poured it on 3 by 3' area so I could work on one section at a time. Left it on for 20 minutes and then scrubbed it with a wire brush. Worked well but get protective gear. August 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. June 1, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. July 4, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. July 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great I was trying to remove glue from concrete that was used for carpeting. I want to put down procelain tile but I needed to remove the glue before doing so. At first I tried using just a high quality scraper to scrape the glue from the floor. After trying this I realized it would take days to finish, the glue seemed impossible to get off the floor. I purchased this adhesive remover to make the job easier. If you follow the instructions it works wonderfully. Using the plastic sheating and using a paint roller to distribute the remover is required. Wearing safety goggles and gloves is necessary. If you get this in your skin it will burn immediately. This seems like it covers quite a lot of square footage. March 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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 products.....at 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 1.0 out of 5.0 by Horrible experience We wanted to try this product instead of renting a machine to get the glue off the concrete, thinking we could avoid a big mess. Big mistake. It made a huge mess, now the floor is wet and we will have to wait for it to dry before we can start working again. While it took some glue off, it mostly didn't work. We followed the instructions carefully, but using plastic cover did not make a difference. It seems to work okay if you want to get some adhesive off, but it smears horribly and will really not get your concrete clean the way that a concrete chipper/grinder will. The amount of work and adhesive it would take to actually clear the floor places it well within the realm of not worth it. July 5, 2015
