Most glue carpet squares eliminate , but some may leave a remnant of glue behind. Occasionally, some carpet installers use carpet glue to maintain the squares set up, leaving the floor beneath the carpet squares covered in dried glue. Several different methods will eliminate dried or adhesive paste without damaging the linoleum. Depending on the form of glue or dried paste staying on the ground, it may take trial and error to find which option works best.
Lift the carpet square by the corner and then pull it in the ground. Check the linoleum for residual dried or adhesive carpet glue.
Pour a little bit of baby oil onto the exposed linoleum, covering the dried or adhesive paste. Wait five minutes. Gently wash the linoleum using a nonabrasive white scrubbing pad. Wipe the baby away oil and loosened material with a clean, dry rag.
Moisten a rag with mineral spirits. Rub the linoleum using the rag to loosen the glue or dried paste. Use a clean rag dampened with water to remove loosened material and residual mineral spirits.
Apply isopropyl alcohol into a clean rag. Rub the linoleum using the rag, employing more alcohol into the rag as necessary to maintain moisture. Moisten a clean rag with water and use to remove loosened material and residual alcohol.
Pour a small amount of acetone-based fingernail polish remover onto a clean, dry rag. Rub the linoleum using the rag to loosen the glue or dried paste. Clean the linoleum of loosened material and residual fingernail polish remover by means of a rag moistened with water.
