Need Gum Gone? Chewing gum removal is a very sticky situation, whether it is on your concrete, parking lot or the side of a building, chewing gum eventually changes into a smudge on your concrete. But before that point, pedestrians and clients coming into a store or office will walk on it and track it in all over the carpets, rugs and mats. Then it is forced deep into the carpet fibers and into the porous surface of concrete, just waiting for another person to step in it again, to track it somewhere else.
We are proud to offer gum removal as one of our commercial pressure washing services in Aurora CO. 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 not long ago 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 more forgiving consistency compared to a warm and stringy glob. Once that happens, we slide a metal putty knife or scraper under the gum residue. Then we move the scraper slowly under the gum and the whole piece should peel right off of the concrete.
The above method 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 pressure washer with the heat dialed up to 200 Degrees to melt the gum. For this type of gum removal, we will not use high pressure because that will sometimes damage the surface of the concrete!
Our crew never uses more pressure than needed to clean concrete. These surfaces can be destroyed a lot easier than people think, especially if they’re only 1-2 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 completely remove chewing gum from concrete and other commercial surfaces we use specially designed hot water power washing equipment and special soaps that allow us to clean the surface without resulting in any damages.
Using special 200 degree hot water pressure washers and low pressure equipment, we are able to safely remove gum and surface dirt all while protecting the surface. Our method will also eliminate bacteria and viruses that sometimes found in gum on concrete.
By hiring Aurora Pressure Washing for routine maintenance cleaning at your store or office, your commercial property will have better curb appeal and your chewing gum removal problems will be over! You will also prevent damage to carpets and other flooring while making your storefront more appealing to visitors.
