How To Remove Mastic

Before we get to understand 'how to remove mastic off the concrete floor' let us first get to know what mastic is exactly.

Mastic adhesive or glue is usually an industrial/ constructive adhesive or ceramic tile adhesive. It is basically in thin liquid, thick glue or paste form used to stick ceramic or wooden tiles to the floors. It creates a seal making the floor waterproof and thereby is an ideal choice for bathrooms, kitchens and ducts. At times, it is spilled or dropped onto the tiled, wooden or concrete floors and has to be removed to maintain the beauty of the floors - of course, the stained floors seems to be a cosmetic nuisance.

Although it is strictly advised to wipe off the mastic before it dries, in case it is not removed, you should hire professionals to bring back your floors to sparkling lean looks.
