Surface Preparation: Removing Dry Wall Mud
Hi, I just ordered the stain, wax and sealer from you. I was amazed how quickly it got here.
Anyway, my question is: I have some drywall mud, one stain spot and some carpet adhesive on the floor. I wasn’t sure what product(s) I needed to remove these properly. I bought Simple Green and it seems to be removing the drywall mud. Will regular paint stripper or “Oops” work for the other things?
I can’t wait to get started! I think it will look awesome.
Drywall mud is potentially your biggest problem because it is a silicone based product. If any of the mud is left on the surface or in the pores, it will leave white spots where the stain could not penetrate the surface. If you can still see drywall mud in the pores, use a fine, stainless steel wire brush to remove the remaining mud. Any glue/mastic can be removed with our Bean-E-Doo Mastic Remover.
