Floor glue on newly layed engineered wood floor?

engineered floor Add comments

While laying new engineered floor boards we found some boards have a residual film after removing glue. Is there something that will remove this film without damaging the boards. We have tried wd-40, paint thinner, magic sponge.
We need help floors looks baaad!! Thanks

Thinner will not remove the glue if it is a water based(latex) glue…Denatured alcohol will..however there are precautions here!! If the finish on the flooring is a latex polyurethane or varnish..it will also damage the finish..flatten the sheen out, or even make it "buckle" on you…..Goof off,krud cutter,goo gone and all that will also damage it if latex based..The ingredients in those products are all denatured alcohol..along with a few other additives…Find out from the manufacturer if the finish on the flooring is water based or oil based products..if oil based..get the denatured alcohol at any paint store,walmart etc..

Her is some info basically as I suggested..denatured works with any latex residue removal..

    The glue instructions should say something about removal.

    thinner won’t hurt the floor and should remove it. Also are you sure it is not from the factory? it might be a manufacture flaw at any rate if it is glue you use thinner will do the trick
