Contractor used PL Premium when laying my hardwood floors. Unfortunately he tracked it all over the floors. Its been cured and have no idea how to remove it. It has also stained the finish. Have no idea what finish is on the floor. Contacted the flooring company several times but they still haven't responded. What do I do? This stuff is everywhere as I had the hardwood put through the whole downstairs.

First of all Pl Premium is not designed for laying floors.

Check the installation instructions on the flooring that was used.

There are urethanes adhesives that are designed specifically for flooring such as Bostek's Best.

I don't know what kind of contract you had with them or if you have paid them. But I would make vist with a attorney that does construction defect work and spend $50 - $200 for a review of your situation.

As to your question you might try LiftOff Silcon Caulk and Foam Remover.

I have people report that it has remove excess Gorilla Glue (with is also a urethane based adhesvie) with damaging the finish on furniture.

But PL is a different type of urethane and I don't know if it will work or not.

Also test it in a hidden area to see if it affects the finish.

Thanks for the advice. Actually, I took a last ditch attempt and tried Mr. Clean Magic Eraser on one spot and it came right off with no damage to finish so I have gone over the floors and it all came off. I had previously tried everything else. So you never know what will or will not work. Glad it's gone!

Actually if you look at the Lepage website it says PL is designed for laying hardwood floors.

I have removed the drop in liner and have been left with a black glue adhesive nightmare. What product could I use to remove this?

You should know by now that Billfart is just a blowhard that gives poor advice.

Hi, I was reading this post and i have the same problem. I installed the floors my self and used PL. When I was done I noticed that one of my shoes had PL on it and made a complete disaster of my floor. I'v been trying everything and nothing was working. I didn't want to use chemicals and take the finish off. When I was reading and you said you used a magic eraser, the first thing I did was go a try it. Everything came off. I'm jumping of joy. Thanks again for the great advice

PL Premium for gluing down hardwood to stairs is simply the best, just make sure you don't get it on your hands, shoes, walls, etc.
