Floor Adhesive Remover

GKGF75015 – Gallon

Helpful Tip

Cover the applied area with a heavy plastic drop cloth. Use a long-handled paint roller on top of the plastic with very little pressure to spread the stripper under the plastic, just to the edges. For the best results, use in temperatures between 65 F and 85 F and away from hot sun. Protect surrounding areas with a heavy drop cloth. Do not use on linoleum, plastic, rubber, asphalt tile, other synthetics, or painted surfaces. Will remove paint. May not work on solvent-based contact cement.


Klean-Strip® Green® Floor Adhesive Remover

Klean-Strip® Green® Floor Adhesive Remover is a biodegradable formula for removing adhesives from wood, concrete, metal and masonry. It contains no methylene chloride, V.O.C., caustic or petroleum distillates. Its low odor makes it safe for indoor use. It is easy to use because it stays wet and active for up to 24 hours, allowing stripping of large areas in one step. It can be allowed to work overnight. Removes most mastics, Liquid Nails, floor covering adhesives & latex adhesives in 1 to 3 hours. Covers 10-15 sq. ft. per quart.



1. Pull up linoleum, tiles or paneling.

2. Wear chemical-resistant gloves, chemical splash goggles and appropriate work shoes. Shake well before opening can.

3. Pour remover onto the adhesive to be stripped. Spread with a long-handled paint roller to obtain a thick even layer at least 1/16” thick. Do not step on the area as it may be slippery. Leave the area and let the remover do the work. Do not allow the remover to completely dry on the surface as the adhesive can re-adhere.

4. After 1-3 hours, scrape a small test area to see if the adhesive is softened and ready for removal. Use a long-handled sidewalk scraper or floor hoe to scrape the loosened adhesive. Any remover that is still liquid can be pushed onto another area and reused. If the remover and adhesive form a thick gel or solid material, use a broom and dustpan to pick up material and take it outside to fully dry. Before the scraped area is completely dry, use a mop with soapy water to get up any residue after scraping.
