Next time you have stuck on carpet padding, get yourself a flat blade ice chopper. This looks like a garden hoe but the blade is straight instead of bent 90 degrees. Use this to scrape off the lumps instead of scrubbing.
If the lumps were held on by staples, then use a pliers to pull the staples then scrap the lump off.
Getting the chopper lets you stand while doing the scraping, instead of getting down on your hands and knees with a regular scraper.
