Spray’ and away: Remove adhesive residues, that’s how!

If you wait in front of the checkout at the discount store and look down at the floor, you’ll see them: unsightly remnants of adhesive tape used as spacers. But cleaners also have to deal with adhesive residues in buildings that are in the shell stage or shortly before completion. With a new type of stain remover from haid-tec, the removal of crumbly adhesive residues is not witchcraft. Learn in our article how to best remove adhesive residues

Adhesive residues are usually only noticed when the dirt sticks and the strips turn black

Tape is often used to mark areas on the floor where glass plates, pallets or work equipment are to be temporarily stored or where people should not walk. What is very practical at first, later becomes a problem: because the adhesive tapes often stubbornly refuse to separate from the substrate.

Normal maintenance cleaners are no match for the sticky residue that sticks to the floor when you peel it off. Sometimes it goes unnoticed at first that the tape has not been completely removed. Often it is not noticed that it has not been removed without residue until construction workers walk over the areas and the dirt gets stuck and the stripes turn black.

With the new Stain Remover PLUS, haid-tec launched a stain remover last year that removes adhesive tape residues quickly and without leaving any residues– and even does so almost odourlessly and without leaving any toxic residues.

Remove adhesive residues by scraping, spraying, wiping: it's that easy!

  1. First remove the adhesive strips from the bottom, using a spatula or glass scraper to remove the coarse plastic residue.
  2. Then spray the adhesive residues with Stain Remover PLUS and leave the liquid to soak in for about two to three minutes.
  3. Then run over it with the wet sponge. Since the stain remover softens and emulsifies the adhesive residue, you don’t even have to scrub vigorously. The remains can be easily wiped away.



Tip: If you have a larger area to clean, it is more convenient to use the scrubber dryer to pick up the loosened emulsified dirt residue.

Also effective against oil stains and other marks

At the beginning of the development of our new stain remover, we did not even consider the problem of adhesive strips, which has multiplied exponentially due to Corona. Originally, we were looking for a solution to remove oil stains on the rough and highly porous porcelain stoneware tiles. We wanted to develop a stain remover that could easily remove greasy and oily substances, in other words, one that could take on stains that were not water-soluble.

Through our many tests, we found that the new stain remover also works well against the following stains:

  • Paint splatters
  • Paint splatter
  • Felt-tip pen and sharpie markings
  • Abrasion of rubber soles and wheels

We have even been able to remove graffiti from tiles – even though this is not normally part of a building cleaning…

After the reconstruction and the completion of the construction work: a sought-after helper in the checkout area

If the new building is a new supermarket, drugstore or DIY store, then the stain remover is also an important helper after commissioning when it comes to renewing the distance markings in front of the checkout areas. Because after a while, these become quite unsightly and half-removed distance markings leave a bad impression on the customer. With the environmentally friendly Stain Remover PLUS, which is nevertheless powerful, it is easy for cleaners to keep aisles and the checkout area clean and tidy.
