Take carpet off of outside porch and step and get rid of that glue that held it?
Use a sharp utility knife to cut thru the carpet to form strips a couple feet wide. Then loosen each strip by whacking at the edges with a shovel. When you get enough carpet loose, to get a good grip on it, you can usually pull it off. To remove the glue, you will need to heat it with a heat gun, until it is soft and pliable. Then scrape it with a scraper. This job will require A LOT of elbow grease. A LOT.
Hi Judith: Here are a couple of sites that may help:
Hope this helps; Good luck
Scrape it off with a ice chisel
Mineral spirits will dissolve the residue, then scrape off.
Mineral spirits and a metal scraper with a long wooden handle from the hardware store.
