GUM REMOVAL IN Mount Pleasant SC


Need Gum Gone? Chewing gum removal can be a very sticky situation, whether it’s stuck on your concrete, parking lot or the side of a building, gum eventually changes into a black smudge on concrete. But usually before then, visitors and clientele coming into a business will step on it and get it in all over the carpets and mats. Then it’s forced 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 Mount Pleasant SC. Find more information on our process below:


The best methods of removing gum from concrete depends on how long the gum has been there and level of penetration into the concrete surface. If the chewing gum was left recently and it hasn’t 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 stringy mess. Once that happens, we slide a putty knife or scraper under the gum. After that we slide the scraper slowly beneath the gum and the whole piece should peel right off the concrete.

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

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

Our crew never uses more pressure than needed to clean commercial 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 take 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 service.


To remove gum from concrete and other commercial surfaces we use custom designed hot water power washing equipment and special soaps and detergents that allow us to effectively clean the concrete without leading to any damages.

Using special 200 degree hot water pressure 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 sometimes found in gum on concrete.

By hiring Mt. Pleasant Pressure Washing for routine maintenance commercial cleaning at your store or office, your property will have a better appearance and your chewing gum removal issues will be dealt with! You will also ensure less damage to carpets and interior flooring while also making your storefront more inviting to visitors.
