Carpet installed on top of fiberglass can typically be found on a boat. The adhesive used to attach the carpet is more durable than standard carpet glue because it must resist water and temperature fluctuations. For this reason, after you pull up the carpet, you must then spend some time removing the glue that remains stuck to the fiberglass. Use a chemical solvent to soften the carpet glue, allowing you to remove it.
