Gum Removal

Need Gum Gone? Chewing gum removal can be a very sticky situation, whether it is on your concrete, parking lot or on the side of a building, chewing gum eventually transforms into a smudge on concrete. But usually before that point, visitors and clients coming into a store or office will walk on it and track it in all over the carpets, rugs and mats. Then it’s 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 track it somewhere else.

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


The best methods of 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 recently and it hasn’t penetrated the surface, we are sometimes able to get it off by covering it with ice until it freezes, then scraping the gum off with a putty knife.

The ice forces the chewing gum to freeze into a workable consistency compared to a gooey and stringy mess. Once that happens, we slide a metal putty knife or scraper under the gum residue. After that we move the scraper slowly beneath the gum and the whole piece should then peel right off of the concrete.

The above process is only possible with brand new gum.

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

Our crew never uses any more pressure than necessary to safely clean concrete. These surfaces can be destroyed a lot easier than 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 gum removal professional.


To completely remove chewing gum from parking lots and other surfaces we use custom designed hot water power washing tools and powerful soaps that enable us to clean the concrete without causing any damages.

Using special 200 degree hot water power washers and low pressure, we safely remove chewing gum and dirt while protecting the surface. Our process will also destroy bacteria and germs that sometimes found in gum.

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