Gum Removal

gum removal in augusta



Need Gum Gone? Chewing gum removal can be a sticky business, whether it is stuck on your concrete, parking lot or the side of a building, gum eventually changes into a dark smudge on your concrete. But before then, visitors and clientele walking into a business will step on it and track it in all over your carpets, rugs and mats. Then it is forced deep into the carpet fibers and into the porous surface of concrete or asphalt, just waiting for another person to step in it again, to track it somewhere else in your building.

We are happy to provide gum removal as one of our commercial pressure washing services in Augusta GA. Find information on our service below:


The best methods for removing chewing gum from concrete usually depends on the gum’s age and level of penetration into the concrete surface. If the chewing gum was left not long ago and it has not 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 chewing gum to freeze into a workable consistency compared to a warm and sticky mess. Once the gum is frozen, we slide a metal putty knife or scraper right under the gum. After that we move the scraper very slowly under the gum and the entire piece should then peel right off the concrete.

The above process is only possible with gum that is brand new.

When we remove chewing gum that is already black, or is smashed deep down into the concrete, 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 ruin the surface of the concrete!

Our pressure washers never uses more pressure than needed to safely clean concrete. These types of surfaces can be damaged much easier than most people think, especially if they’re only a few years old. Concrete can need up to 100 years to cure. That is why we always use hot water and the least amount of pressure possible for our chewing gum removal professional.


To completely remove chewing gum from sidewalks and other commercial surfaces we use custom designed hot water power washing tools and powerful soaps and detergents that allow us to clean the concrete without leading to any damages.

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