Gum Removal

Need Gum Gone? Chewing gum removal can be a sticky business, whether it is stuck on your concrete, parking lot or on the side of a building, gum eventually transforms into a dark smudge on your concrete. But before then, visitors and clientele walking 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 and into the porous surface of concrete, just waiting for someone to step in it again, to track it somewhere else.

We are proud to provide gum removal as one of our commercial pressure washing services in Tamarac FL. Find more information about our process below:


The best methods for removing chewing gum from concrete depends on the gum’s age 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 get it off by covering it with ice until the gum freezes, then scraping it off with a metal putty knife.

The ice forces the chewing gum to freeze into a more forgiving substance compared to a gooey and sticky mess. Once the chewing gum is frozen, we slide a putty knife or scraper right under the gum residue. After that we slide the scraper slowly under 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 chewing gum that has turned black, or is smashed deep down into the concrete surface, we use a hot water pressure washer with the heat dialed up to 200 Degrees in order to melt the gum. For this type of gum removal, we won’t use very high pressure because that could damage the surface of the concrete!

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


To remove gum from sidewalks and other surfaces we use custom designed hot water pressure washing tools and professional-grade soaps that allow us to clean the surface without causing any damages.

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

By hiring Tamarac Pressure Washing for routine maintenance commercial cleaning at your property, your property will have a better appearance and all chewing gum removal issues will be over! You will also ensure less damage to carpets and other flooring while also making your storefront more inviting to clientele.
