How to get sticky gunk off wood floor after tile (vinyl or linoleum) removal?
I removed the old tiles and now there is a lot of sticky glue. How should I clean this up and prep it for the peel and stick tiles I want to install?
best way i have found is to use a chemical adhesive remover, pour it on the floor, scrub it with a stiff bristle brush or broom, mop up excess, and allow to dry before installing new tiles. depending on your existing sub floor ( is it rough, wavy, or damaged) you may need to install a 1/4 inch plywood laminate over the floor, fill all seams and nails then prime the floor with a special primer made for peel and stick tiles. any home improvement store can set you up.
