Need Gum Gone? Chewing gum removal is a very sticky situation, whether it is stuck on your concrete, parking lot or on the side of a building, chewing gum eventually turns into a smudge on your concrete. But usually before then, visitors and clients coming 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’s embedded deep into the carpet fibers and into the porous surface of concrete, just waiting for another person to step in it again, to track it somewhere else in your building.
We are proud to offer gum removal as one of our commercial pressure washing services in Denton TX. Find information about our methods below:
The best methods for removing gum from concrete depends on how long the gum has been there and the level of penetration into the concrete surface. If the chewing gum was left recently and it hasn’t penetrated the surface, we are sometimes able to get it off by covering it with ice until the gum freezes, then scraping it off with a putty knife.
The ice forces the gum to freeze into a more forgiving substance compared to a gooey and sticky glob. Once that happens, we slide a putty knife or scraper under the gum. Next we move the scraper slowly beneath the gum and the entire piece should then peel right off the concrete.
The above process is only possible with gum that is brand new.
When we remove gum that is already black, or is smashed deep down into the concrete surface, we use a hot water pressure washer with the heat dialed up to 200 Degrees to melt the gum. For this type of gum removal service, we will not use high pressure because that might damage the surface of the concrete!
Our pressure washers never uses any more pressure than necessary to clean commercial concrete. These surfaces can be damaged much easier than people think, especially if they’re only a couple of years old. Concrete can require 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 remove gum from concrete and other commercial surfaces we use custom designed hot water power washing tools and special soaps that enable us to effectively clean the surface without leading to any damages.
Using special 200 degree hot water pressure washers and low pressure, we safely remove chewing gum and surface dirt while protecting the surface. Our service will also eliminate bacteria and germs that can be found in gum on concrete.
