Need Gum Gone? Chewing gum removal can be a sticky business, whether it is stuck on your concrete, parking lot or the side of a building, chewing gum eventually transforms into a smudge on your concrete. But usually before that point, pedestrians and clients walking into a business will walk on the chewing gum and track it in all over the carpets and entryway mats. Then it is forced 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 Lewisville TX. Find information on our methods below:
The best methods for removing chewing gum from concrete usually depends on the gum’s age and the level of penetration into the concrete surface. If the gum was left not long ago and it has not penetrated the surface, we might be able to get it off by covering it with ice until it freezes, then scraping the gum off with a putty knife.
The ice forces the chewing gum to freeze into a workable substance compared to a gooey and stringy mess. Once that happens, we slide a putty knife or scraper directly under the gum. Then we slide the scraper very slowly under the gum and the entire piece should then peel right off of the concrete.
The above method is only possible with brand new gum.
When we remove chewing gum that is already black, or is already smashed deep down into the concrete surface, we use a hot water pressure washer with the heat dialed up to 200 Degrees in order to melt the gum. For this type of gum removal service, we do not use very high pressure because that could ruin the surface of the concrete!
Our crew never uses any more pressure than needed to clean commercial concrete. These surfaces can be damaged much easier than most people think, especially if they’re only a few years old. Concrete can take up to 100 years to cure. That is why we always use hot water and the least amount of pressure possible for our chewing gum removal professional.
To completely remove chewing gum from parking lots and other surfaces we use custom designed hot water power washing tools and powerful soaps and detergents that enable us to 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 chewing gum and dirt all while protecting the surface. Our service will also destroy bacteria and viruses that are found in gum.
