I went through this exact project several years ago. A adhesiver remover/stripper was used.
Since then I found a adhesive remover product I swear by. De-Solve-it. Its 100% orgainic and can
be used on skin and hair(gum). I use it to remove the expanding foam like "Great Stuff" and the
adhesive "Liquid Nails" from my hands even after they have dried. De-Solve-it removes more than
just adhesives. I wish this projuct was available when I refurbished our wood floors.
However, I went the long and hard way.

I don't recall the exact brand we used. However, I do remember it was a special solvent for
fast removal of cured adhesives. It was a thick gel that came a couple different sizes. We
bought the 1 gal. can with a handle. We poured the thick gel right on the floor from the can
spread it with a brush, waited about 30 min. then scraped it using a floor scraper. We had to
wear stripping gloves during the process.

There are several different brands of adhesive remover on the market. We bought a couple brands
that was a complete waste of money. I suggest when buying a remover find the smallest container
until you know its a brand worth buying in larger quantities.
