Need Gum Gone? Chewing gum removal can be a sticky business, 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, visitors and customers coming into a store or office will walk on it and get it in all over the carpets and mats. Then it is 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 proud to provide gum removal as one of our commercial pressure washing services in Peoria AZ. Find more information on our methods below:
The best methods for removing gum from concrete depends on the gum’s age and level of penetration into the concrete surface. If the gum was left recently and it has not penetrated the surface yet, we might be able to get it off 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 consistency compared to a gooey and sticky mess. Once that happens, we slide a metal putty knife or scraper under the gum. Then we slide the scraper slowly beneath the gum and the entire piece should then peel right off the concrete.
The above process is only possible with brand new gum.
When we remove gum that has turned black, or is already smashed 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 won’t use high pressure because that will sometimes harm the surface of the concrete!
Our pressure washers never uses any more pressure than needed to safely clean commercial concrete surfaces. These types of surfaces can be damaged much easier than most 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 service.
To remove gum from parking lots and other commercial surfaces we use custom designed hot water pressure washing tools and special soaps that allow us to effectively clean the concrete without resulting in any damages.
Using special 200 degree hot water pressure washers and low pressure, we are able to safely remove gum and surface dirt while protecting the surface. Our process will also eliminate bacteria and germs that can be found in gum on concrete.
