    Mike my view is it’s Forbo’s floor Forbo’s glue. Let Forbo tell me what to do.Im not a Forbo problem solver . I’m a installer.
    I found a way the remove affected areas . Forbo instructor told me no

    That’s a commercial facility that will surely have a maintenance program for the floors. You already know what gets rid of the adhesive so bust a move with the magic eraser and be done with it.

    Clean, new, white rags.

    HOT soapy water (Dawn dish soap) constantly rinsing and refreshing the clean/soapy water pail.

    Now you know.

    I appreciate the heads up as to the EXTREME necessity for our normal, Standard Operating Procedures. We're always supposed to do everything to every perfect, extreme level of manufacturer's wet dream job site conditions. No one could ever make a living doing it that way so we have to learn by failure and adjustment to REAL LIFE conditions.

    This is what we're here for. To learn from failure before we repeat it the 3rd/4th time.

    I use naphtha for just about everything.. Carpet, Lino, Vinyl, Wood... its the best thing going.
    That and dawn.
    I have used a lot of that glue, and never seen that problem or been called back for that problem.

    Fix is in
    Finally we were able to get a hold of the proprietary Forbo adhesive remover! I was originally told this this Soy Based cleaner wouldn’t be as effective as mineral spirits
