    Hardwood flooring glue on sheetrock
    We just had hardwood floors installed, and some of the glue got on our door jams and sheetrock. Do you have any suggestions for getting it off the sheetrock. We have started scraping it off the door jams, and will probably sand them and repaint, but I'm not sure what to do with the sheetrock.

    Thanks for your help.

    You may have to do the same to the walls as your doing to the jambs.
    Is the glue from 3/8" Bruce flooring? That's one reason why I staple down the floor when possible when I do an install.
