Gum Removal

Need Gum Gone? Chewing gum removal can be a very sticky business, whether it is stuck on your concrete, parking lot or the side of a building, chewing gum eventually turns into a smudge on your concrete. But usually before that point, pedestrians and clients coming into a business will walk on it and get it in all over the carpets, rugs and mats. Then it is forced deep into the carpet 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 happy to offer gum removal as one of our commercial pressure washing services in Miami FL. Find more information on our methods below:


The best methods of removing chewing 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 not long ago and it has not penetrated the surface yet, we are sometimes 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 workable substance compared to a warm and stringy glob. Once the chewing gum is frozen, we slide a metal putty knife or scraper under the gum. Next we move the scraper very slowly beneath the gum and the whole piece should peel right off of the concrete.

The above process 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 pressure washer with the heat dialed up to 200 Degrees to melt the chewing gum. For this type of gum removal service, we will not use very high pressure because that will sometimes damage the surface of the concrete!

Our crew never uses more pressure than necessary to clean commercial concrete surfaces. These types of surfaces can be damaged much easier than most people think, especially if they’re only 1-2 years old. Concrete can take 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 chewing gum removal service.


To remove chewing gum from parking lots and other commercial surfaces we use custom designed hot water power washing tools and powerful soaps that enable us to effectively clean the surface without causing 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 service will also eliminate bacteria and germs that are found in gum.

By hiring Miami Pressure Wash Co. for regular maintenance commercial cleaning at your property, your property will have better curb appeal and all gum removal problems will be over! You will also ensure less damage to carpets and interior flooring while also making your storefront much more appealing to customers.
