Apply the mastic remover to the wood floor using a mop or a paint brush. Apply the remover only to the areas of the floor that have mastic on them.
Allow the mastic remover to sit for the amount of time specified on the product packaging.
Place the flat edge of a floor scraper onto the floor in front of you and hold the handle at a 45-degree angle to the floor. Push the scraper along the floor to scrape up the mastic from the floor. Do not allow the handle to rise above 45 degrees or you may gouge the wood floor.
Continue until all of the mastic has been removed from the floor.
Sweep up the curls of mastic using a broom and brush pan.
Rinse the mop thoroughly in plain water. Damp mop the entire wood floor to remove all traces of the mastic remover.
