I decided to replace the entire house with a glue down plank vinyl flooring. I followed the instructions and used the recommended glue to put it in place.
Two days after putting the floor down, when moving the appliances in I could see wet glue coming through the cracks. I cleaned it up and assumed I placed too much glue in that area. That was just the beginning of cleaning up glue. Months have gone by and here and there in the kitchen I would see wet glue come through the seams. Everyday that went by I was hoping it would finally dry.
Well, it’s been over a year and decided to peal a tile up only to see the concrete slab and the glue I put down was as wet as the day I put it down. I don’t know why the glue never dried in the kitchen and the rest of the house is fine.
I don’t have any water pipes that run through the slab, so it’s not a water leak.
The house was built in the mid-60s. The common floor type that was the glue down sheet vinyl with cut back black glue. I still had a hit and miss of this old glue still on the concrete but, it was mostly in another room where the new floor is fine.
I don’t know where to start to fix this problem. I can pull up these tiles and clean the glue off the slab and reuse the tiles, but what glue will adhere to the concrete and the tile. I’m looking for a solution to this mysterious problem. Hope you can help me,
