Immediately clean any adhesive on pre-finished flooring with Bostik® Ultimate Adhesive Remover or a soft towel and mineral spirits. (Be careful not to harm finish.) Do not allow mineral spirits to sit on hardwood surface... likewise with your tools.
Once cured it is significantly harder to remove so best to watch as you go along.
