This is a good reminder for contractors who install engineered and solid prefinished wood flooring when using adhesives for full-spread and glue-assist: Always clean up adhesives that get on the face or ooze up between the edges during install. The quicker you clean it up, the less-likely it will get stepped in and spread. Adhesive left on the face of the wood flooring is hard to remove – especially days later – and can sometimes cause damage to the finish. Always follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for using an adhesive remover and clean up the day of installation.
