GUM REMOVAL IN Rancho Cordova CA


Need Gum Gone? Chewing gum removal can be a very sticky situation, whether it is stuck on your concrete, parking lot or on the side of a building, chewing gum eventually turns into a dark smudge on your concrete. But usually before that happens, visitors and clientele walking into a business will walk on the chewing gum and get it in all over the carpets, rugs and mats. Then it is embedded deep into the carpet fibers and into the porous surface of concrete, 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 Rancho Cordova CA. Find more information on our methods below:


The best methods of removing chewing gum from concrete usually depends on how long the gum has been stuck there and level of penetration into the concrete surface. If the gum was left not long ago and it has not penetrated the surface, 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 gum to freeze into a more forgiving substance compared to a gooey and stringy mess. Once the chewing gum is frozen, we slide a putty knife or scraper under the gum. Then we slide the scraper very slowly under the gum and the whole piece should peel right off the concrete.

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

When we remove gum that has turned black, or is already smashed down into the concrete, we use a hot water pressure washer with the heat dialed up to 200 Degrees to melt the gum. For this type of gum removal, we do not use very high pressure because that will sometimes ruin the surface of the concrete!

Our team never uses any more pressure than needed to safely clean concrete surfaces. These types of surfaces can be destroyed a lot easier than people think, especially if they’re only a couple of years old. Concrete can need 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 professional.


To remove chewing gum from parking lots and other commercial surfaces we use specially designed hot water power washing tools and powerful soaps that enable us to clean the concrete without leading to any damages.

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

By hiring Rancho Cordova Pressure Washing for regular maintenance commercial cleaning at your store or office, your property will have better curb appeal and all gum removal issues will be over! You will also prevent damage to carpets and flooring while making your storefront much more inviting to visitors.
