Sucks, but the best way that I know of is going to be scraping. Most chemicals that will remove the glue will also effect the finish and integrity of the concrete floor itself and you don't want to do that.

TSP and elbow grease may work.

My first question would be what are you going to be putting back down on the floor?

There are a number of ways to get the old adhesive off the floor.

There are a few products that you can use to remove it or you can scrap it off the floor.

You might want to try "dry ice" on the glue.

I know "tilers" some time use it to remove old tiles/glue.

Freezes/brittles the living you know what out of it and it scrapes off. \:\)

where does a guy get that stuff. and i bet its dangerous and alot of money.

I think we just need to redo it with carpet. This way we dont have to get rid of the glue, can just place it over the top

Look up dry ice in the yellow pages. And on your next trip to Canada you'll know where to go as well \:\)

That stuff is the bomb, a little spendy but once you try dry ice you'll want it for every long distance trip.

When we do this comerical we use a grinder/Sander. You can go to a rental place tell them you are looking for a sander to remove the dried up Glue residue that was left behind from pulling the carpet.

See if you can get one that has a vaccum attachment to it. for it will get very dusty in the air.

If you can't get a sander/grinder with a vaccum attachment, then set up fans and blow the air out a door or window.

This will be alot ezier and alot less costly then putting a thin layer of concrete down.

Which most likely will only chip up later as it gets wear and tear on it

Dry ice is compressed gas and comes in various forms. It's not a hazardous material but will burn you bad if not handled with gloves or scoops. It's manufactured @ -109 degrees so it's darn cold \:\)

You will find a manufacturer/retailer of dry ice in Burnsville.

Just west of the mall on (42) about 2-miles @ the Savage/Burnsville line. Gets pretty spendy (over $1 a lb) after it leaves that place to other retailers of it so thats where to go (.50 lb). I can get a good deal on it seeing I'm connected. ;\)

The sander option mentioned might be the more convenient method.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.
