Need Gum Gone? Chewing gum removal is a sticky situation, whether it’s stuck on your concrete, parking lot or on the side of a building, chewing gum eventually transforms into a smudge on your concrete. But usually before then, visitors and customers coming into a business will step on the gum and get it in all over the carpets, rugs and entryway mats. Then it is embedded deep into the carpet fibers and into the porous surface of concrete or asphalt, just waiting for someone to step in it again, to track it somewhere else in your building.
We are happy to provide gum removal as one of our commercial pressure washing services in Cary NC. Find more information on our service below:
The best methods of removing gum from concrete usually 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, we might be able to get it off by covering it with ice until the gum freezes, then scraping the gum off with a putty knife.
The ice forces the gum to freeze into a workable substance compared to a gooey and stringy mess. Once that happens, we slide a putty knife or scraper under the gum residue. Next we slide the scraper very slowly under the gum and the whole piece should peel right off of the concrete.
The above process is only possible with gum that is brand new.
When we remove chewing gum that has turned black, or is smashed deep down into the concrete surface, we use a hot water power washer with the heat turned up to 200 Degrees in order to melt the chewing gum. For this type of gum removal service, we do not use high pressure because that could ruin the surface of the concrete!
Our team never uses any more pressure than necessary to clean commercial concrete. These types of surfaces can be damaged a lot 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 professional.
To completely remove gum from parking lots and other surfaces we use custom designed hot water pressure washing tools and professional-grade soaps that enable us to clean the concrete without causing any damages.
Using special 200 degree hot water power 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 destroy bacteria and germs that sometimes found in gum on concrete.
By hiring Cary Pressure Washing for regular maintenance cleaning at your building, your commercial property will have a better appearance and your chewing gum removal issues will be over! You will also prevent damage to carpets and other flooring while also making your storefront much more appealing to clientele.
