Need Gum Gone? Chewing gum removal is a sticky situation, whether it is on your concrete, parking lot or on the side of a building, gum eventually changes into a smudge on your concrete. But before that happens, visitors and customers walking into a store or office will step on it and get it in all over your carpets, rugs and entryway mats. Then it is embedded deep into the carpet 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 proud to offer gum removal as one of our commercial pressure washing services in Simi Valley CA. Find information on our process below:
The best methods of removing chewing gum from concrete depends on how long the gum has been stuck there and level of penetration into the concrete surface. If the chewing 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 it off with a metal putty knife.
The ice forces the chewing gum to freeze into a workable substance compared to a warm and stringy mess. Once that happens, we slide a metal putty knife or scraper right under the gum. Then we slide the scraper slowly beneath the gum and the entire piece should peel right off the concrete.
The above process is only possible with gum that is brand new.
When we remove chewing gum that is already black, or is already smashed deep down into the concrete surface, we use a hot water pressure washer with the heat turned up to 200 Degrees to melt the chewing gum. For this type of gum removal service, we do not use very high pressure because that will sometimes damage the surface of the concrete!
Our crew never uses any more pressure than necessary to clean commercial concrete surfaces. These surfaces can be damaged a lot easier than most people think, especially if they’re only a few 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 chewing gum removal professional.
To completely remove chewing gum from concrete and other commercial surfaces we use specially designed hot water pressure washing equipment and special soaps and detergents that allow us to clean the surface without resulting in any damages.
Using special 200 degree hot water power washers and low pressure, we safely remove gum and dirt while protecting the surface. Our process will also eliminate bacteria and viruses that sometimes found in gum on concrete.
By hiring Simi Valley Pressure Washing for regular maintenance commercial cleaning at your building, your commercial property will have a better appearance and your gum removal issues will be over! You will also ensure less damage to carpets and flooring while making your storefront much more inviting to customers.
