Gum Removal

gum removal in glendale



Need Gum Gone? Chewing gum removal is a very sticky situation, whether it is stuck on your concrete, parking lot or the side of a building, chewing gum eventually transforms into a smudge on your concrete. But usually before that happens, pedestrians and clientele walking into a store or office will walk on it and get it in all over the carpets, rugs and 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 happy to provide gum removal as one of our commercial pressure washing services in Glendale CA. Find information on our service below:


The best methods for removing chewing gum from concrete depends on the gum’s age and the level of penetration into the concrete surface. If the chewing gum was left recently and it hasn’t penetrated the surface, we might be able to get it off by covering it with ice until it 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 the gum is frozen, we slide a putty knife or scraper directly under the gum residue. Next we slide the scraper very slowly under the gum and the entire piece should 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 already smashed deep down into the concrete, we use a hot water pressure washer with the heat dialed up to 200 Degrees to melt the chewing gum. For this type of gum removal, we won’t use high pressure because that will sometimes ruin the surface of the concrete!

Our team never uses any more pressure than needed to clean concrete. These types of surfaces can be damaged a lot easier than most people think, especially if they’re only 1-2 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 remove chewing gum from parking lots and other commercial surfaces we use specially designed hot water power washing equipment and special soaps that enable us to effectively clean the concrete without causing any damages.

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

By hiring Glendale Pressure Washing for regular maintenance cleaning at your property, your property will have better curb appeal and your gum removal problems will be dealt with! You will also ensure less damage to carpets and other flooring while also making your storefront much more appealing to customers.
