Guys, I’m hoping you can give me some DIY advice. The sun room in our new house was covered in an impossibly foul carpet, and after ripping it out there was a thick gray carpet pad stuck to the concrete. After hours of scraping, the majority of padding is gone, but a wickedly stubborn residue remains.
There’s exactly ONE clean spot of concrete right now, there on the step where I spent 30 minutes scrubbing it with a wire brush and a deadly solvent.
Have any of you dealt with this bullshit before? Any suggestions for getting the residue off during the next decade?
PS: The rest of the house is coming along. New kitchen floors are in:
Still to do: lots of painting, light fixtures, hardware, and a metric shit-ton of yardwork. Also, CARPET PADDING GAHHH.
**UPDATE** The floor buffer idea? Genius. It’s totally working, and it’s a big obnoxious phallic power tool, so you know JB is stoked. Thanks, everyone.
