How to remove the mounting foam

Surely you have encountered such a problem as a frozen mounting foam. This problem is often dealt with by installers of windows or doors, as they constantly work with foam. But if they already have enough knowledge on how to use and remove the remnants of this material, then most people just do not have enough experience and often find themselves in a situation where the foam has come to any surface and hardened.

We remove the frozen foam

So, since you are in this situation, let's proceed to the removal. In this case, the frozen foam is on the door frame of the veneer.

The first thing is to mechanically remove large pieces. To do this, take any screwdriver, chisel or other sharp tool. And carefully, without touching the surface, so as not to damage it, remove the foam.

As a result, small traces remained.

The main component with which we will remove traces is Dimexide. A drug that can be bought at any pharmacy. This is actually the whole secret of this method. The tool is inexpensive and can’t hit hard.

We take a cotton pad, moisten it with dimexide and apply to the remains of the foam. We are waiting for 3-5 minutes.

Then just delete it.

The foam becomes soft and easy to remove.

As a result, the surface is completely cleaned, despite the fact that this foam is not one day.

This method is suitable for removing foam from a hard surface, as well as from tissue, hands or another surface.

Caution should be used with varnished surfaces, as Dimexide can dissolve them. Therefore, preliminary soaking does not need to be done.

You should also be careful if dimexide has contact with your skin. Although this drug is created specifically for treatment, there is a chance of a rare allergic reaction due to intolerance to the components, read the instructions for use.

Yes, actually, you need to work like with any other solvent: in a well-ventilated area, taking into account safety precautions.
