Need Gum Gone? Chewing gum removal can be a very sticky situation, whether it is stuck on your concrete, parking lot or the side of a building, gum eventually transforms into a black smudge on your concrete. But before that happens, visitors and clientele coming into a business will walk on the gum and get 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 happy to offer gum removal as one of our commercial pressure washing services in Houston TX. Find information about our service below:
The best methods of removing chewing 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, we might be able to get it off by covering it with ice until it freezes, then scraping the gum off with a putty knife.
The ice forces the chewing gum to freeze into a more forgiving substance compared to a warm and stringy glob. Once the gum is frozen, we slide a metal putty knife or scraper directly under the gum residue. Then we slide the scraper very slowly under the gum and the entire piece should peel right off the concrete.
The above method is only possible with brand new gum.
When we remove chewing gum that has turned black, or is already smashed deep 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 don’t use very high pressure because that might damage the surface of the concrete!
Our team never uses any more pressure than needed to clean commercial concrete. These surfaces can be destroyed 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 chewing gum removal professional.
To completely remove chewing gum from concrete and other commercial surfaces we use specially designed hot water pressure washing tools and powerful soaps that enable us to effectively 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 chewing gum and dirt all while protecting the surface. Our process will also eliminate bacteria and viruses that are found in gum.
By hiring ACE Houston Pressure Wash for regular maintenance commercial cleaning at your property, your commercial property will have a better appearance and all chewing gum removal issues will be over! You will also prevent damage to carpets and other flooring while also making your storefront much more welcoming to customers.
