    Well i said DUCK just out of being so use to the brand names around here haha sorry

    didnt even notice,

    also i found this


    On carpets: Try spraying the goo residue down with WD-40 - let it soak for a while, then follow with a spray-in rug shampoo. Let dry and vacuum. Repeat.
    It eventually does go away. That's why they make Gaffer Tape - to hold rugs and cords down and can be removed without leaving the residue.

    just stand on that area so when they inspect it, they don't see it.

    You tell me; I've heard this before.

    Although personally I think it sucks for use on ducts.
