The "normal" response would be to use acetone which is a solvent for gorilla glue (or super glue), but acetone will dissolve the material used to laminate the floor and cause it to become cloudy. I've had success scraping globs of glue off with a fingernail. Better yet, try putting an ice cube over the spot of glue until it gets brittle, and you should be able to scrape it off. Hope this works! Good luck!

Dropped a glob on laminate flooring. Dried. Haven't touched it.

Depending on what the glob is....try gently scraping at it with a putty knife. A lot of dried globs will easily come up from a laminate floor.

How do you remove dried gloss paint from laminate floor

Try using a steam iron, put a damp cloth on top of the paint and then the iron on top and steam the paint, it may soften it enough to get it off with a plastic scraper so you don't mar the floor finish.

Hi,I have just laid a solid oak floor,160mm x 21mm planks,the floor was quite uneven but was told by floor salesman that this is no problem,the adhesive will make good,however although the new floor is...

Well never listen to salesmen. Once you walk out the door they don't care. The problem with foam is I doubt any of them firm up enough to keep the floor from moving. If you've never worked with expanding foam, I think it would be rather hard to inject into small holes and would be very messy. I'm wondering if injecting an epoxy filler woulnd't be easier and dry much harder. Next time try regular body putty for automobiles. It's relatively inexpensive, dries very fast, adheres very nice to wood and is easy to sand and level.
