Removing carpet adhesive/foam backing

The easiest way to do this job is with the PEEL AWAY 5 product. It is afe and will do the job in as single application

After using the liquid removers always wash off the residue!
Also cut the carpet into manageable pieces prior to applying. Make sure you have plenty of ventilation!!!

A razor scraper works well getting the glue residue(goo) that is left on the concrete off.

If there is a lack of ventilation, I would cut the carpet into 6" to 1' strips, and then hand scrape with a razor scraper.
