Need Gum Gone? Chewing gum removal can be a very sticky situation, whether it’s on your concrete, parking lot or the side of a building, gum eventually transforms into a black smudge on concrete. But before that happens, pedestrians and customers coming into a store or office will step on the gum and track it in all over the carpets and mats. Then it is forced deep into the carpet and into the porous surface of concrete, just waiting for another person to step in it again, to carry it somewhere else in your building.
We are happy to provide gum removal as one of our commercial pressure washing services in New Braunfels 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 level of penetration into the concrete surface. If the gum was left recently and it hasn’t penetrated the surface yet, we might be able to remove it by covering it with ice until it freezes, then scraping it off with a metal putty knife.
The ice forces the gum to freeze into a workable substance compared to a warm and sticky mess. Once the chewing gum is frozen, we slide a putty knife or scraper right under the gum. Then we slide the scraper very slowly under the gum and the whole piece should then peel right off of the concrete.
The above process is only possible with brand new gum.
When we remove chewing gum that is already black, or is smashed down into the concrete, we use a hot water power washer with the heat dialed up to 200 Degrees in order to melt the chewing gum. For this type of gum removal, we will not use high pressure because that might ruin the surface of the concrete!
Our pressure washers never uses more pressure than needed to safely clean concrete surfaces. These surfaces can be damaged much easier than most people think, especially if they’re only 1-2 years old. Concrete can take 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 service.
To remove gum from parking lots and other surfaces we use specially designed hot water power washing equipment and special soaps and detergents that allow us to clean the surface without resulting in any damages.
Using special 200 degree hot water pressure washers and low pressure equipment, we can safely remove chewing gum and surface dirt all while protecting the surface. Our service will also eliminate bacteria and germs that sometimes found in gum.
