Need Gum Gone? Chewing gum removal is a sticky situation, whether it is stuck on your concrete, parking lot or on the side of a building, gum eventually changes into a dark smudge on concrete. But usually before then, visitors and customers walking into a business will walk on the gum and track it in all over the carpets and mats. Then it’s 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 carry it somewhere else in your building.
We are proud to provide gum removal as one of our commercial pressure washing services in Smyrna GA. Find more information on our service below:
The best methods for removing gum from concrete depends on the gum’s age and the level of penetration into the concrete surface. If the chewing gum was left not long ago 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 metal putty knife.
The ice forces the chewing gum to freeze into a more forgiving consistency compared to a gooey and stringy glob. Once that happens, we slide a putty knife or scraper under the gum. Next we move the scraper very 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 gum that has turned black, or is already smashed deep 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 service, we won’t use high pressure because that might 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 destroyed a lot easier than most people think, especially if they’re only a couple of years old. Concrete can take up to 100 years to cure. That is why we always use hot water and the least amount of pressure possible for our professional chewing gum removal service.
To remove gum from parking lots and other commercial surfaces we use specially designed hot water power washing equipment and powerful soaps that enable us to effectively clean the surface without causing any damages.
Using special 200 degree hot water pressure washers and low pressure, we are able to safely remove chewing gum and dirt while protecting the surface. Our method will also destroy bacteria and germs that sometimes found in gum on concrete.
By hiring Supreme Smyrna Pressure Wash for regular maintenance commercial cleaning at your property, your property will have a better appearance and your chewing gum removal issues will be over!
