Gum Removal

gum removal in saint cloud



Need Gum Gone? Chewing gum removal is a sticky business, whether it is on your concrete, parking lot or the side of a building, chewing gum eventually turns into a dark smudge on concrete. But before that happens, visitors and clients coming into a business will walk on it and get it in all over your carpets, rugs and entryway mats. Then it’s embedded deep into the carpet and into the porous surface of concrete, just waiting for someone to step in it again, to carry it somewhere else.

We are proud to provide gum removal as one of our commercial pressure washing services in Saint Cloud FL. Find information about our service below:


The best methods for removing chewing gum from concrete usually depends on the gum’s age and the level of penetration into the concrete surface. If the gum was left recently and it hasn’t penetrated the surface yet, we are sometimes able to remove it 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 glob. Once that happens, we slide a metal putty knife or scraper right under the gum residue. After that we slide the scraper slowly beneath the gum and the entire piece should then peel right off the concrete.

The above method is only possible with brand new gum.

When we remove gum that is already black, or is smashed down into the concrete surface, we use a hot water power washer with the heat dialed up to 200 Degrees to melt the gum. For this type of gum removal, we won’t use high pressure because that could harm the surface of the concrete!

Our pressure washers never uses any more pressure than necessary to clean commercial concrete surfaces. These surfaces can be destroyed a lot easier than people think, especially if they’re only a couple of 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 gum removal service.


To completely remove gum from parking lots and other surfaces we use custom designed hot water pressure washing equipment and special soaps and detergents that enable 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 all while protecting the surface. Our process will also destroy bacteria and viruses that sometimes found in gum.
