Hello, everyone. I'm Joshua Clement, and today I'm going to talk to you about non-toxic ways on how to remove carpet adhesive from your tile. What we're going to have to do is scrape off that adhesive from the tile without using any chemicals. For this job, we'll be using a putty knife and a dry rag. What we'll do is we'll take our putty knife and wrap our rag around the blade of it and then go and start scraping off that adhesive. Now there is a coating on to of the tile that protects stuff from sticking to it. So it's a little bit easier to get off. We put the rag on there that way we don't scratch the tile or gouge into the tile in the grout. Now after you've scraped a little bit you want to move your knife because your knife is starting to cut through the rag so you just move it to a new location on the rag and keep on scraping. The faster you can get that glue off of your tile the better. It's going to be easier to get off the sooner you get to it. Thank you all for watching and good luck with this project.
