The "builder" we had has left glue on our new floors, it is coming off but is leaving marks on the floor. Any ideas of products we can use?

Sticky Stuff Remover and white spirit have been used so far!

Get the builder back to get it done

I'd phone the builder and ask him what to use.

Probably best to get brand new oak flooring.

If it is real wood flooring and not plastic laminate it may be possible to sand it out if the chemicals fail.
