Actually scraping...

In reply to Residue from old outdoor carpet by Fran Wooton on April 12th, 2001 06:20 PM [Go to top of thread]

with a sharp wide wood chisel or a paint scraper that has some rigidity.

Also, on outdoor carpet, especially with a good thick rubber backing, slight imperfections or stuff stuck on the slab will not come through or show as in indoor flooring.

I would scrape it clean, hose it down, let it dry completely, sweep it down several times, then apply the outdoor mastic, going precisely by directions.

I always dry measure and cut the carpet and have it already fitted and ready to go. Then I apply the mastic and wait for it to dry to a tacky state. Then grab the carpet and on something small like this, I would set one half of the carpet, then change positions on the carpet and lay the other half. Smooth it out and you have it.

I would not do this in the late afternoon. I woudl do this early in the morning so that the mastic does set and cure before nightfall.
