Need Gum Gone? Chewing gum removal can be a very sticky situation, whether it is stuck on your concrete, parking lot or the side of a building, chewing gum eventually transforms into a smudge on concrete. But usually before that happens, visitors and customers walking into a store or office will step on the chewing gum and track it in all over the carpets, rugs and entryway mats. Then it is embedded deep into the carpet and into the porous surface of concrete or asphalt, just waiting for someone to step in it again, to track it somewhere else.
We are happy to provide gum removal as one of our commercial pressure washing services in Round Rock TX. Find more information on our service below:
The best methods for removing chewing gum from concrete usually depends on how long the gum has been there and level of penetration into the concrete surface. If the gum was left recently and it has not penetrated the surface, we might be able to get it off 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 workable consistency compared to a warm and sticky mess. Once that happens, we slide a putty knife or scraper right under the gum. Then we move the scraper very slowly under the gum and the whole piece should peel right off of the concrete.
The above method is only possible with gum that is brand new.
When we remove gum that is already black, or is already smashed down into the concrete surface, we use a hot water power washer with the heat turned up to 200 Degrees to melt the chewing gum. For this type of gum removal, we will not use very high pressure because that will sometimes harm the surface of the concrete!
Our pressure washers never uses any more pressure than needed to safely clean concrete. These types of surfaces can be destroyed much easier than most people think, especially if they’re only a couple of 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 chewing gum removal professional.
To remove chewing gum from sidewalks and other commercial surfaces we use specially designed hot water pressure washing tools and powerful soaps that enable us to effectively clean the concrete without leading to any damages.
Using special 200 degree hot water pressure washers and low pressure equipment, we safely remove chewing gum and surface dirt all while protecting the surface. Our service will also eliminate bacteria and germs that can be found in gum on concrete.
