The floor can not work this way, you definitely and desperately need some way out to clean it off.
Comparing Floorings To Carpets
Wood or tile flooring give a more sophisticated look to your room. It creates a shine into the room as the materials like wood or tiles have shine in themselves naturally.
Your carpet, however carefully used, would not look like a new one for more than a year. But if you use some tips and tricks and care a little for these floors they will appear brand new for years and years.
Moreover if something falls on carpet, it retains the smell and it becomes difficult to get rid of it.

Here I will be providing you with the tips and tricks to remove carpet adhesive off your floor. Whether it is hardwood flooring or any other flooring, for both you will find the solution down here.
Cleaning Carpet Glue Off Your Flooring
Prepare Adhesive Removal Mixture
Now how much vinegar you would need to remove the adhesive depends on the size of the area of your floor that has adhesive on it. I am giving you an estimate for not a very huge area. Take 2 cups of vinegar and pour it into a deep pan. Now put the vinegar over the stove and heat it till it comes to boil.
Once it boils; turn off the stove and let the vinegar cool for a min or two. After this, transfer this vinegar from the pan to a bucket (not a very small one). After this take a clean large piece of cloth. I would advise you to use a towel, as this would work better.
Now put the cloth or towel whatever you have into the bucket and let it remain soaked into it for a few minutes. After a few minutes take out the towel but don’t squeeze it to take extra vinegar out. If you have a bigger area you can use more towels soak them the same way into vinegar.
Fixing Vinegar Soaked Towel
Now set the vinegar soaked cloth over glue on your floor. Remember one thing that the vinegar soaked towel should remain warm. Let it be set there over glue for about fifteen to twenty minutes. After that remove the towel, and use a scraper, a big one, to scrap the glue off the floor. If the adhesive is too stubborn, leave the towel over it for around thirty to forty minutes and then start the scraping process. Hire the best carpet cleaning company if you want to get rid of dust and dirt particles.
Washing The Floor
Now when you have removed the glue, it’s time for you to wash the floor. You actually would not be washing the floor instead you would be using cloth soaked in cold water to clean the floor.
Pouring water directly on the floor will make it hell for you to dry up the floor. Now dry up the floor using dry cloth or paper towels, but do not dry by rubbing, do it by blotting just or use carpet steam cleaning.
So here you are done, easily you have removed the glue of your flooring.
