Gum Removal

gum removal in brandon



Need Gum Gone? Chewing gum removal can be a sticky situation, whether it’s stuck on your concrete, parking lot or the side of a building, gum eventually changes into a dark smudge on concrete. But usually before that happens, pedestrians and customers coming into a store or office will step on it and track it in all over the carpets and mats. Then it’s 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.

We are proud to offer gum removal as one of our commercial pressure washing services in Brandon FL. Find more information about our service below:


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

The ice forces the chewing gum to freeze into a workable substance compared to a gooey and sticky mess. Once that happens, we slide a metal putty knife or scraper under the gum residue. Next we move the scraper slowly under the gum and the entire piece should then peel right off of the concrete.

The above process is only possible with brand new gum.

When we remove gum that has turned black, or is smashed deep down into the concrete, 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 don’t use high pressure because that will sometimes damage the surface of the concrete!

Our crew never uses more pressure than necessary to clean concrete surfaces. These surfaces can be destroyed much 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.


To remove gum from concrete and other commercial surfaces we use custom designed hot water pressure washing tools and professional-grade soaps and detergents that enable us to clean the concrete without leading to any damages.

Using special 200 degree hot water power washers and low pressure equipment, we can safely remove gum and surface dirt all while protecting the surface. Our process will also destroy bacteria and viruses that can be found in gum.
