GUM REMOVAL IN Killeen TX

Need Gum Gone? Chewing gum removal can be a very sticky business, whether it is stuck on your concrete, parking lot or the side of a building, gum eventually transforms into a dark smudge on concrete. But before that happens, pedestrians and clientele coming into a business will walk on it and track it in all over your carpets and mats. Then it’s embedded deep into the carpet and into the porous surface of concrete or asphalt, just waiting for another person 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 Killeen TX. Find information on our process below:

METHODS FOR REMOVING GUM FROM CONCRETE

The best methods for removing chewing gum from concrete depends on how long the gum has been stuck there and the level of penetration into the concrete surface. If the gum was left not long ago and it hasn’t penetrated the surface yet, we are sometimes able to get it off by covering it with ice until it freezes, then scraping the gum off with a metal putty knife.

The ice forces the gum to freeze into a workable consistency compared to a gooey and sticky mess. Once that happens, we slide a metal putty knife or scraper under the gum residue. After that we slide 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 chewing gum that is already black, or is already smashed 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, we will not use high pressure because that will sometimes damage the surface of the concrete!

Our team never uses any more pressure than necessary to clean commercial concrete. These types of surfaces can be damaged a lot easier than most 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 chewing gum removal service.
