Need Gum Gone? Chewing gum removal can be a sticky situation, whether it is on your concrete, parking lot or the side of a building, chewing gum eventually turns into a dark smudge on concrete. But before that happens, pedestrians and customers walking into a business will step on it and track it in all over your carpets, rugs and mats. Then it’s forced deep into the carpet and into the porous surface of concrete, just waiting for someone to step in it again, to carry it somewhere else.
We are proud to offer gum removal as one of our commercial pressure washing services in Fayetteville NC. Find more information on our service 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 recently 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 it off with a metal putty knife.
The ice forces the chewing gum to freeze into a workable substance compared to a warm and stringy glob. Once that happens, we slide a metal putty knife or scraper directly under the gum. Then we move the scraper slowly under the gum and the whole piece should peel right off 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, we use a hot water pressure washer with the heat dialed up to 200 Degrees in order to melt the chewing gum. For this type of gum removal service, we will not use very 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 a lot easier than people think, especially if they’re only 1-2 years old. Concrete can need 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 completely remove chewing gum from parking lots and other surfaces we use custom designed hot water power washing tools and professional-grade soaps that allow us to clean the surface without leading to any damages.
Using special 200 degree hot water power 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 can be found in gum on concrete.
By hiring Fayetteville Pressure Washing for regular maintenance cleaning at your building, your property will have better curb appeal and your gum removal problems will be over! You will also prevent damage to carpets and flooring while making your storefront much more appealing to customers.
