For foam-backed goods, use a pushbroom or carpet tube to press goods into adhesive. Allow adhesive to dry well before exposing installations to cleaning water.

Cleanup Clean tools and excess adhesive with water while wet. If adhesive has dried, use mineral spirits or equivalent solvent. Follow solvent vendor's precautions when using solvents. NOTE: Test solvent in an out-of-the-way area to make sure it will not mar or attack the surface.
