Need Gum Gone? Chewing gum removal is a very sticky business, whether it’s stuck on your concrete, parking lot or the side of a building, gum eventually transforms into a black smudge on your concrete. But usually before then, pedestrians and customers coming into a business will step on it and track it in all over the carpets, rugs and entryway mats. Then it’s embedded deep into the carpet and into the porous surface of concrete, just waiting for another person to step in it again, to track it somewhere else.
We are happy to provide gum removal as one of our commercial pressure washing services in Alpharetta GA. Find information about our process below:
The best methods of removing chewing gum from concrete usually depends on the gum’s age and 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 remove it by covering it with ice until the gum freezes, then scraping it off with a putty knife.
The ice forces the gum to freeze into a more forgiving substance compared to a warm and sticky mess. Once the gum is frozen, we slide a putty knife or scraper right under the gum residue. Then we slide the scraper very slowly under the gum and the entire piece should then peel right off of the concrete.
The above process is only possible with gum that is brand new.
When we remove gum that has turned black, or is already smashed down into the concrete, we use a hot water power washer with the heat dialed up to 200 Degrees in order to melt the gum. For this type of gum removal service, we will not use very high pressure because that could damage the surface of the concrete!
Our pressure washers never uses more pressure than necessary to safely clean concrete surfaces. These surfaces can be damaged a lot easier than people think, especially if they’re only a couple of years old. Concrete can need up to 100 years to cure. That is why we always use hot water and the least amount of pressure possible for our professional gum removal professional.
To completely remove chewing gum from parking lots and other surfaces we use specially designed hot water pressure washing tools and professional-grade soaps and detergents that enable us to effectively clean the surface without resulting in any damages.
Using special 200 degree hot water power washers and low pressure equipment, we can safely remove gum and surface dirt all while protecting the surface. Our service will also eliminate bacteria and viruses that sometimes found in gum on concrete.
