My husband and I bought a house recently and the terrazzo tile floor in the living room has the residue of one of those "mesh," rubber, under-rug pads. The residue is so thick that you can see the raised pattern of the pad. What is the best way to remove it? Should I scrape it off or use some kind of chemical to help? Is this something best left to professionals? Thanks.

Scrape surface residue off as best you can,then follow up by wiping with mineral spirits.Continue until the cloth no longer picks-up soil.If the terrazzo has floor finish on it,you'll need to remove that as well using straight ammonia.Allow ammonia to pool and set 5-10 mins. before scrubbing with an abrasive pad.Because of porosity,the stain may have been absorbed well into the stone and may be permanent.

taylock: the easiest answer to your problem is to use the PEEL AWAY 5 product. It will do the removal in ashort period of time and it is safe to use.
