Gum Removal

Need Gum Gone? Chewing gum removal is a very sticky business, whether it’s stuck on your concrete, parking lot or the side of a building, chewing gum eventually turns into a black smudge on your concrete. But usually before that point, visitors and clientele coming into a store or office will walk on it and get it in all over your carpets and entryway mats. Then it’s embedded deep into the carpet fibers and into the porous surface of concrete or asphalt, just waiting for someone to step in it again, to track it somewhere else.

We are happy to provide gum removal as one of our commercial pressure washing services in Marietta GA. Find information about our methods below:


The best methods for removing chewing 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 hasn’t penetrated the surface yet, 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 consistency compared to a gooey and stringy glob. Once that happens, we slide a metal putty knife or scraper under the gum residue. Next we move the scraper slowly beneath the gum and the whole piece should then 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 down into the concrete, we use a hot water pressure washer with the heat turned up to 200 Degrees in order to melt the gum. For this type of gum removal service, we won’t use very high pressure because that will sometimes harm the surface of the concrete!

Our crew never uses more pressure than needed to clean concrete. These types of surfaces can be damaged much easier than most people think, especially if they’re only a few 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 sidewalks and other surfaces we use specially designed hot water pressure washing tools and professional-grade soaps and detergents that allow us to effectively clean the concrete without causing any damages.

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

By hiring PRO Marietta Pressure Wash for routine maintenance commercial cleaning at your building, your property will have a better appearance and all gum removal problems will be dealt with! You will also ensure less damage to carpets and flooring while making your storefront much more inviting to customers.
