Need Gum Gone? Chewing gum removal is a sticky situation, whether it’s stuck on your concrete, parking lot or the side of a building, chewing gum eventually changes into a dark smudge on your concrete. But usually before that happens, visitors and clients walking into a business will walk on the chewing gum and get it in all over your carpets, rugs and mats. Then it’s forced deep into the carpet and into the porous surface of concrete, 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 Fishers IN. Find information on our methods below:
The best methods of removing chewing gum from concrete usually 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 might be able to remove it by covering it with ice until the gum freezes, then scraping it off with a putty knife.
The ice forces the gum to freeze into a more forgiving substance compared to a warm and sticky glob. Once that happens, we slide a putty knife or scraper directly under the gum residue. Then we move the scraper very slowly beneath the gum and the entire piece should then peel right off the concrete.
The above method is only possible with gum that is brand new.
When we remove gum that has turned black, or is already smashed down into the concrete, we use a hot water pressure washer with the heat dialed up to 200 Degrees in order to melt the gum. For this type of gum removal service, we won’t use high pressure because that might harm the surface of the concrete!
Our team never uses any more pressure than necessary to clean commercial concrete. These surfaces can be destroyed a lot easier than most people think, especially if they’re only a few 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 gum removal service.
To remove chewing gum from concrete and other surfaces we use custom designed hot water power washing equipment and professional-grade soaps that allow us to effectively clean the concrete without causing any damages.
Using special 200 degree hot water power washers and low pressure, we can safely remove gum and dirt all while protecting the surface. Our service will also eliminate bacteria and viruses that sometimes found in gum on concrete.
By hiring Fishers Pressure Washing for regular maintenance commercial cleaning at your location, your commercial property will have a better appearance and your chewing gum removal problems will be dealt with! You will also prevent damage to carpets and flooring while making your storefront more inviting to clientele.
