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 turns into a dark smudge on concrete. But usually before then, visitors and clients coming into a store or office will step on it and track it in all over your carpets, rugs and mats. Then it’s forced deep into the carpet fibers 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 provide gum removal as one of our commercial pressure washing services in Sugar Land TX. Find more information on our process below:
The best methods of removing chewing gum from concrete usually depends on how long the gum has been stuck there and level of penetration into the concrete surface. If the gum was left not long ago and it hasn’t penetrated the surface yet, we are sometimes able to remove it by covering it with ice until the gum freezes, then scraping the gum off with a putty knife.
The ice forces the gum to freeze into a more forgiving substance compared to a warm and stringy mess. Once that happens, we slide a metal putty knife or scraper directly under the gum residue. Next we slide the scraper very slowly beneath the gum and the whole piece should then peel right off of the concrete.
The above method is only possible with brand new gum.
When we remove 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 to melt the gum. For this type of gum removal, we won’t use high pressure because that might ruin the surface of the concrete!
Our team never uses any more pressure than needed to clean concrete surfaces. These types of surfaces can be destroyed a lot easier than most people think, especially if they’re only a couple of 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 gum removal professional.
To completely remove gum from parking lots and other surfaces we use custom designed hot water power washing equipment and powerful soaps and detergents that allow us to effectively clean the concrete without leading to any damages.
Using special 200 degree hot water pressure washers and low pressure equipment, we are able to safely remove gum and surface dirt while protecting the surface. Our service will also destroy bacteria and germs that sometimes found in gum on concrete.
