Gum Removal

gum removal in scottsdale



Need Gum Gone? Chewing gum removal is a very sticky business, whether it’s on your concrete, parking lot or on the side of a building, chewing gum eventually transforms into a smudge on concrete. But before that happens, pedestrians and clientele coming into a store or office will walk on the chewing gum and get it in all over your carpets, rugs and mats. Then it is embedded 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 carry it somewhere else in your building.

We are proud to provide gum removal as one of our commercial pressure washing services in Scottsdale AZ. Find more information on our methods below:


The best methods of removing gum from concrete usually depends on how long the gum has been there 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 get it off by covering it with ice until it freezes, then scraping it off with a putty knife.

The ice forces the chewing gum to freeze into a more forgiving substance compared to a warm and sticky glob. Once the gum is frozen, we slide a putty knife or scraper directly under the gum. Then we move the scraper very slowly under the gum and the entire piece should then peel right off the concrete.

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

When we remove gum that is already black, or is smashed down into the concrete surface, we use a hot water power washer with the heat dialed up to 200 Degrees in order to melt the chewing gum. For this type of gum removal service, we don’t use very high pressure because that will sometimes ruin the surface of the concrete!

Our crew never uses any more pressure than needed to clean commercial concrete surfaces. These surfaces can be damaged much easier than people think, especially if they’re only a couple of 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 concrete and other commercial surfaces we use custom designed hot water pressure washing equipment and professional-grade soaps that enable us to clean the surface without resulting in any damages.

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

By hiring Scottsdale Pressure Washing for regular maintenance cleaning at your property, your commercial property will have better curb appeal and all gum removal issues will be dealt with! You will also prevent damage to carpets and flooring while also making your storefront more inviting to clientele.
