Removing Asphalt Tile Adhesive from Wood Flooring

by Michigan State University on Apr 27, 2012

If asphalt tile has been installed over a wood floor and is removed to finish the wood floor naturally, the black adhesive from the tile is difficult to remove.

How To Remove Asphalt Tile Adhesive:

  1. Get a gallon of solvent with no oil in it at the hardware;

  2. Check the label and if flammable then be very sure no flame or spark in the room or any adjoining rooms as fumes can travel;

  3. Do only when windows can be open for ventilation;

  4. Apply solvent to the adhesive and let stand until adhesive softens;

  5. Scrape off as much adhesive as possible;

  6. Repeat process;

  7. After almost all is removed, sand floor to remove the last residue.

This is hard, time-consuming work, and dangerous unless all cautions in using solvent are followed carefully.

Check with a flooring center store to see if they have any newer products that are easier to use to remove the adhesive.
