Customer Questions & Answers

What do we use to clean after the glue is removed

Asked by: Louie
I used my carpet shampooer, buy I bet a regular mop with nice hot water would work too.

How long does Formula 747 have to sit on floor before new tile can be laid?

Asked by: Pastor
It starts working right away. Based on a similar product (Youtube video), I decided to wait 4 hours. The video recommended 12 hours. It worked so fast that 4 was sufficient. Do one more scrubbing before removing the product.

Can this product be used on wood?

Asked by: cap1963
I wouldn't use it on wood. The dissolved adhesive would get absorbed into the wood and impede the adhesion of new adhesive or finishes.

Why does Home Depot sell the Sentinel 747, but doesn't sell the Sentinel 810 it calls for to clean up after using the 747??

Asked by: Ron
I was wondering the same thing. Sentinel 810 is available on at least one highly popular Internet vendor (which oddly doesn't sell Sentinel 747.)

Formula 747 Plus 128 oz. Adhesive Remover is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 45.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magic stuff love it This product seems to only work for the black glue cutback you find under the 9 inch tile. But man this stuff is magic. I was working on a 1970's house. And after removing the tiles, I just pored it on the ground and moved it around with the squeegee. You have to leave it alone for 20 minutes and then you just squeeggee the liquid tar into the middle of the room. Put some cat litter down on it, and put it in the box with the trash bag in it. Then mop it twice with some dish washing detergent and let it dry. So much easier then scrapping at it for hours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Removes Black Mastic (old adhesive) This was for 100 sqft room I poured the product on, directly to the surface. Staying within a 2x2 area. I waited 20 mins, used my scraper to take off the bulk of the adhesive, collecting it with paper towels (Bounty 8 rolls). In the same 2x2 area, I used the 747 Sentinel in an old Windex bottle and gave a light coat. Then used an old dish brush to work the product into the concrete. Using paper towels to wipe it off. Afterwards, when this black tar mess was wiped up. I went over the concrete with driveway/concrete cleaner and a hand brush. Advice: Use paper towels to collect the mess. Dont wear clothing that you care about. Kitchen gloves are your friends. Its not toxic, just messy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from keep looking This product does not work on carpet glue. I did what the instructions said waited 20 min then try ed to scrape it up. I add more and waited a hour and try ed to scrape it up. This product does not work. Use boiling hot water or steam with a brush it's a lot faster.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of $20! I'm removing glue down sheet vinyl on my bathroom floor. It softens the backing of the vinyl but doesn't even come close to softening the glue. Wouldn't buy it again. Im better off, which I am using, an angle grinder with course wire wheel.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Might as well use soap and water This was a waste of $20 for my application. I followed the directions word for word. I did wet the floor nicely. That was a joke

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worse than useless I was attempting to remove tan/yellow carpet glue from VCT that had been overlayed with a commercial glued installation. A trial area was unsuccessful with only about a 20% removal but I attempted to power on. Applying it to the entire floor in a 7x9 room, I let it sit for 30 mins hoping to soften the adhesive and remove the high spots in the mastic ridges then come back and clean up what I could of the rest. Very poor results. Worse yet, when trying to use a razor scraper, the softened mastic had become like an ice rink. I abandoned the room until the mess abated. Curiosly, I had better results with plain hot water. This product may work with other glues, but not this typical carpet adhesive.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty Good. Would use it again I have a 1960 house. The black mastic underneath the 10x10 squares needed removed. After a couple attempts with the product I found this to be the easiest way to use it. Tape plastic anywhere you want to protect. Have an area to change your shoes and such to keep from tracking anywhere outside the project area. Tools - 747, Big Squeegee (I used one meant for driveway sealant), metal dust pan, kitty litter. Broom- or brush, Mop, Dawn Dishwashing detergent, bucket., Wet/Dry Vac. apply material liberally. Brush it evenly on the floor. I brushed back and forth and in a circular pattern. Let it sit for several hours (I waited four or more). I scrubbed one more time with the broom. Then used the squeegee to form puddles and apply kitty litter. Put that in a waste bucket. Bush any other areas that are stubborn or use a scraper. Continue to collect the material in puddles and remove with the kitty litter. Very quickly after this, apply the bucket of water and dawn solution with the mop and swirl it libberly. Vacuum the water with the shop vac. I used a dehumidifier to aid the drying process. The last step is to rinse again with plain water.
