Need Gum Gone? Chewing gum removal is a sticky situation, whether it’s on your concrete, parking lot or the side of a building, gum eventually changes into a black smudge on concrete. But before then, pedestrians and customers coming into a store or office will step on it and get it in all over your carpets and entryway mats. Then it is forced deep into the carpet fibers and into the porous surface of concrete or asphalt, just waiting for another person to step in it again, to carry it somewhere else.
We are happy to provide gum removal as one of our commercial pressure washing services in Miramar FL. Find more information on our methods below:
The best methods of removing chewing gum from concrete depends on the gum’s age and level of penetration into the concrete surface. If the gum was left not long ago and it hasn’t penetrated the surface, we might be able to remove it by covering it with ice until the gum freezes, then scraping the gum off with a metal putty knife.
The ice forces the chewing gum to freeze into a more forgiving consistency compared to a gooey and stringy glob. Once the chewing gum is frozen, we slide a metal putty knife or scraper under the gum residue. Next we slide the scraper slowly under the gum and the entire piece should peel right off the concrete.
The above method is only possible with gum that is brand new.
When we remove chewing gum that is already black, or is already smashed deep down into the concrete, we use a hot water power washer with the heat turned up to 200 Degrees in order to melt the chewing gum. For this type of gum removal service, we will not use very high pressure because that could damage the surface of the concrete!
Our pressure washers never uses more pressure than needed to clean commercial concrete surfaces. These types of surfaces can be damaged much easier than people think, especially if they’re only 1-2 years old. Concrete can need up to 100 years to cure completely. That is why we always use hot water and the least amount of pressure possible for our professional gum removal professional.
To completely remove chewing gum from parking lots and other surfaces we use custom designed hot water pressure washing tools and powerful soaps and detergents that enable us to clean the concrete without resulting in any damages.
Using special 200 degree hot water power washers and low pressure, we can safely remove gum and dirt all while protecting the surface. Our service will also eliminate bacteria and viruses that can be found in gum on concrete.
