Need Gum Gone? Chewing gum removal can be a sticky situation, whether it’s stuck on your concrete, parking lot or on the side of a building, chewing gum eventually changes into a black smudge on your concrete. But before that point, visitors and clients walking into a store or office will walk on the gum and track it in all over your carpets, rugs and entryway mats. Then it’s embedded deep into the carpet and into the porous surface of concrete or asphalt, just waiting for someone to step in it again, to carry it somewhere else.
We are happy to offer gum removal as one of our commercial pressure washing services in Pasadena TX. Find more information about our service below:
The best methods for removing gum from concrete usually depends on the gum’s age and level of penetration into the concrete surface. If the chewing gum was left not long ago and it has not penetrated the surface, we are sometimes 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 gum to freeze into a workable substance compared to a warm and stringy glob. Once the gum is frozen, we slide a putty knife or scraper right under the gum. Next we slide the scraper slowly beneath the gum and the whole piece should then peel right off the concrete.
The above process is only possible with gum that is brand new.
When we remove chewing gum that has turned black, or is smashed down into the concrete surface, we use a hot water power washer with the heat turned up to 200 Degrees in order to melt the gum. For this type of gum removal, we don’t use high pressure because that will sometimes damage the surface of the concrete!
Our pressure washers never uses any more pressure than necessary to clean concrete surfaces. These surfaces can be damaged much easier than people think, especially if they’re only a few years old. Concrete can need up to 100 years to cure. That is why we always use hot water and the least amount of pressure possible for our professional chewing gum removal professional.
To completely remove gum from sidewalks and other commercial surfaces we use custom designed hot water power washing equipment and powerful soaps and detergents that allow us to clean the concrete without leading to any damages.
Using special 200 degree hot water power washers and low pressure equipment, we safely remove gum and dirt while protecting the surface. Our method will also destroy bacteria and viruses that sometimes found in gum.
