GUM REMOVAL IN Huntington Beach CA


Need Gum Gone? Chewing gum removal is a very sticky situation, whether it’s on your concrete, parking lot or the side of a building, chewing gum eventually changes into a smudge on your concrete. But before that happens, pedestrians and customers coming into a business will walk on it and track it in all over the carpets and mats. Then it’s forced 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.

We are happy to offer gum removal as one of our commercial pressure washing services in Huntington Beach CA. Find information about our methods below:


The best methods for removing chewing gum from concrete depends on how long the gum has been there and the 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 remove it by covering it with ice until the gum freezes, then scraping the gum 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 glob. Once the gum is frozen, we slide a putty knife or scraper right under the gum residue. Then we slide the scraper slowly beneath the gum and the whole 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 has turned black, or is already smashed deep down into the concrete, we use a hot water power washer with the heat dialed up to 200 Degrees to melt the gum. For this type of gum removal, we won’t 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 a lot easier than people think, especially if they’re only 1-2 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 chewing gum removal professional.


To completely remove chewing gum from sidewalks and other surfaces we use custom designed hot water power washing equipment and professional-grade soaps that allow us to clean the concrete without causing any damages.

Using special 200 degree hot water power washers and low pressure equipment, we are able to safely remove chewing gum and surface dirt all while protecting the surface. Our process will also eliminate bacteria and viruses that can be found in gum on concrete.

By hiring Huntington Beach Pressure Washing for regular maintenance cleaning at your store or office, your commercial property will have better curb appeal and your chewing gum removal issues will be dealt with! You will also ensure less damage to carpets and flooring while also making your storefront much more appealing to clientele.
