glue residue


I have removed the old linolium flooring, scraped of the glue. I still have residue that needs to be covered with underlayment. I have been told use felt between the subfloor and the underelayment, use planipatch mixed with water for a skim coat. Mix planipatch mixed with planipatch plus for a skim coat aned make two coats. All I am sure of is if I do nothing the floor will probably crakle when you walk on it. What is the best solution other than replace the subfloor? The subfloor is a plywood subfloor.

Thanks

JCW

Is this adhesive brittle, is that the reason it would crackle? If it's brittle, you should be able to scrape or sand it off. Old linoleum would have a paper like backing on it. Generally when you remove it, the paper stays stuck to the adhesive. Is this sheet vinyl?

Hi Ron,

Yes it is sheet vinyl. I scraped the glue up but the floor is still sticky, Just the risidule is left on the plywood sub floor. My concern is if I don't skimcoat the floor, when I place the underlaymen down nail, screw or staple. It will still have some movement and sound like bubble wrap.
Thanks

I have underlayed over many a floor with old adhesive still there, with no problems. If the underlay is stapled right, there should be no movement.

I have a question, I just put down some linolium on a concrete floor, the is alot of residue on the top of the linolium....how do I remove that? Do I use the same technique used to remove excess glue AFTER removing linolium floors....or is there another way of doing it?

You remove it immediately with a damp rag. If it dries, look at the glue container for plan "B".

If it's dry, go back to the place you bought it. All adhesive manufacturers have adhesive removers. Cigarette lighter fluid and rubbing alcohol will usually take it off, but may take the shine off as well.

THANKS!

The linolium had the adhesive under the tile....in other words, I would peel the paper and place it on the concrete floor.

You don't have linoleum, you have peel and stick vinyl tiles. Contact the manufacturer if the instructions have no information.
You can look at their website.
