Chewing gum may be fun, but have you seen what it does to sidewalks, patios, entryways, parking lots, and other public areas with a decent amount of foot traffic? Chances are you’ve stepped in gum at one point or another. Improperly disposed gum turns into a dark eyesore that can ruin concrete flooring.
Gum-free sidewalks and entryways create a good impression for your commercial property. If you have gum-stained floors, our team at Puget Power Washing provides professional gum removal services. As expert concrete cleaning contractors, we have the technical know-how and top-notch equipment to do the job right.
Gum Removal without Damaging Your Property
A common way to remove gum is by using an ice cube to freeze it. Freezing gum makes it hard and brittle. Once it’s frozen, you can scrape the gum and break it into pieces with a butter knife or other scraping tool. However, you’re still likely to have some remaining gum. You may need to remove the residue and dissolve the gum in some oil-type solvent.
If you have an extensive chewing gum problem, DIY gum removal techniques like the one mentioned above may be inefficient and time-consuming. That said, professional gum removal is best left to the experts.
At Puget Power Washing, we understand that surfaces differ. For instance, your concrete floor’s age, porosity, and density will affect how it will react to cleaning tools and techniques. Using too much pressure when removing gum from your concrete floor can permanently damage the surface.
Our team knows how to remove gum the right way without damaging your concrete floor. We combine hot water and soft wash methods to melt the gum away rather than blast it off with high pressure. In special cases, we also apply other safe gum removal processes.
