Removing Glue from Teak and Holly

Anyone have recommendations for removing carpet glue from Teak & Holly? This T&H is in mediocre condition, and the glue is not hardened. Restoration is still a question - more carpet to remove before we can make a decision, but in any event the glue has to come off.

Haven't. Sounds like it's pretty agressive.

It would be helpful to know if the floor was solid or laminate. I think I would try a heat gun and scraper first to see if that breaks the bond.

It's a veneer.

If the T&H is mediocre... save your self the grief and buy the requisite amount of sheet T&H and use the old for patterns to cut out fresh floor.... doubt you'll save whats there

I would try surfboard wax remover. Some are citrus based products. If you can't find that have you tried Goof Off. Here in California you can find it at any hardware store. Works well. Goof Off | Removes the Tough Stuff It is nice to have around the boat to take off small stains.

I think Goof Off might damage the finish on the existing floor-boards. "Goo-Gone" which is an Orange Oil based product will not. But WD-40 will also soften and remove many glues very easily without damaging the underlying finish. A little alcohol on a paper towel will remove the residue remaining from the WD-40.

FWIW...

I'm with Boatman. Save yourself the aggravation and just buy new material. By the time you scrape off the old gunk, gouged the veneer a few times with the scraper, cussed like a trooper because your hand slipped while resharpening the scarper blade etc etc it will be simpler to just make new.

the glue is probably latex. these over kill males with testorone addictioons and competitions need to display their chemical aggessiveness in fun and unusual ways.
all youneed is t oput down the cigarettte. turn off the pilot lights. grab the acetone and a rag. put acetone on rag. smear on latex and watch the latex melt into the acetone and disappear.
you are most welcome.
i know all about latex. if you want to ask someone about latex, ask me. unless you know another allergic individual to msds you with the real deal.

btw--i rolled up my sleeves before i tyo'd this so ye know i mean business.. when you have owned the cars and trucks i have owned an d have had a smany sports car racing and motorcycle racing buddies as i have, you think 280 mph tape-- HEAVY LATEX only acetone removes it.
i, too have t&h soles-- they are dinged and have much character-- i oil mine with a fast absorbing oil such as orange, and is all good. you are welcome.
have fun--is all good-- you do not have to re-sole your boat yet. be patient and do as i say-i am princess of keeping old used up wood looking awesome and new. remember--i owna formosa--i know this stuff. i watched captain ron 4 times to make sure i was doing it right.
