Need Gum Gone? Chewing gum removal can be a sticky situation, whether it is stuck on your concrete, parking lot or the side of a building, gum eventually transforms into a dark smudge on concrete. But usually before that happens, visitors and clientele walking into a business will walk on the gum and get it in all over your carpets, rugs and entryway mats. Then it’s 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.
We are proud to offer gum removal as one of our commercial pressure washing services in Davie FL. Find more information about our methods below:
The best methods of removing gum from concrete usually depends on the gum’s age and level of penetration into the concrete surface. If the chewing gum was left recently and it hasn’t penetrated the surface, we might be able to remove it by covering it with ice until it freezes, then scraping it off with a putty knife.
The ice forces the gum to freeze into a more forgiving consistency compared to a gooey and stringy mess. Once that happens, we slide a putty knife or scraper right under the gum. Next we move the scraper slowly beneath the gum and the whole 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 already smashed down into the concrete surface, we use a hot water power washer with the heat dialed up to 200 Degrees to melt the gum. For this type of gum removal service, we won’t use high pressure because that might harm the surface of the concrete!
Our crew never uses more pressure than necessary to clean commercial concrete. These surfaces can be damaged much easier than most people think, especially if they’re only a couple of 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 gum removal service.
To remove gum from sidewalks and other commercial surfaces we use custom designed hot water pressure washing tools and professional-grade 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 equipment, we are able to safely remove chewing gum and surface dirt all while protecting the surface. Our service will also eliminate bacteria and viruses that can be found in gum on concrete.
By hiring Davie Pressure Washing for routine maintenance commercial cleaning at your property, your property will have better curb appeal and your chewing gum removal issues will be over!
