We often hear questions about effective methods to remove glue stains from a wooden floor. Both solid and engineered wood floors are really popular among homeowners as a very visually appealing and natural flooring solution. It’s even a way to increase the value of your property, making homes easier to sell and reach a better price. It’s a very practical and beautiful flooring option both for a flat and a house.
As far as removing glue stains from a wooden floor is concerned, you need to watch out not to damage the finish of the floor or its deeper layers. Firstly, you will need to determine the type of glue stain you need to get rid of. There are many different types of glue, but most of them can be removed with the use of the methods described below. But in the case of doubt, it’s always better to contact your floor supplier or another quality floor provider for advice.
If the glue stain is still wet, it shouldn’t be difficult to remove it with a wet cloth. This will quickly solve the problem and make your floor look good again within several seconds. However, if the glue has already dried, the task will be slightly more difficult.
Probably one of the most recommendable ways to remove glue stains that have already dried from wood flooring consists in applying a quality hardwood floor cleaning product. And again, in the case of doubt as to which product best suits the floor and the given type of glue stain, always consult a renowned flooring supplier.
If you have determined the proper cleaner, it’s best to spray a small amount onto a soft cotton cloth. By doing so, you know that you won’t apply too much onto one area on the floor. Having sprayed the cloth, gently rub the glue stain and then leave it to soak for a maximum of 5 minutes. Then, the glue should be sufficiently softened and you can try scraping it away using a plastic scraper. Do not use metal tools and be very careful not to damage the floor.
