Gum Removal

gum removal in laguna niguel



Need Gum Gone? Chewing gum removal can be a very sticky situation, whether it’s on your concrete, parking lot or on the side of a building, chewing gum eventually changes into a dark smudge on concrete. But usually before then, visitors and clients coming into a store or office will step on it and get it in all over your carpets and entryway mats. Then it’s embedded deep into the carpet and into the porous surface of concrete or asphalt, just waiting for another person to step in it again, to carry it somewhere else in your building.

We are proud to offer gum removal as one of our commercial pressure washing services in Laguna Niguel CA. Find more information about our process below:


The best methods for removing chewing gum from concrete depends on how long the gum has been stuck there and the level of penetration into the concrete surface. If the gum was left not long ago and it hasn’t penetrated the surface, we are sometimes able to remove it by covering it with ice until the gum freezes, then scraping the gum off with a metal putty knife.

The ice forces the gum to freeze into a more forgiving consistency compared to a gooey and stringy glob. Once the chewing gum is frozen, we slide a metal putty knife or scraper directly under the gum. Then we slide the scraper slowly beneath the gum and the entire piece should 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 already smashed deep down into the concrete surface, we use a hot water power washer with the heat turned up to 200 Degrees to melt the gum. For this type of gum removal, we will not use very high pressure because that will sometimes ruin the surface of the concrete!

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


To remove chewing gum from concrete and other surfaces we use custom designed hot water pressure washing equipment and powerful soaps and detergents that enable us to clean the surface without resulting in any damages.

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