Gum Removal

gum removal in woodlands



Need Gum Gone? Chewing gum removal can be a very sticky situation, whether it’s stuck on your concrete, parking lot or on the side of a building, chewing gum eventually turns into a dark smudge on your concrete. But usually before that point, pedestrians and customers coming into a store or office will step on the gum and get it in all over your carpets, rugs and mats. Then it is 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 proud to offer gum removal as one of our commercial pressure washing services in The Woodlands TX. Find information about our service below:


The best methods for removing gum from concrete usually depends on how long the gum has been stuck there and level of penetration into the concrete surface. If the gum was left recently and it has not penetrated the surface, we might be 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 more forgiving substance compared to a gooey and sticky mess. Once that happens, we slide a metal putty knife or scraper directly under the gum. After that we slide the scraper very slowly under the gum and the entire piece should then peel right off of the concrete.

The above method is only possible with brand new gum.

When we remove gum that is already black, or is already smashed down into the concrete, 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 very high pressure because that will sometimes harm the surface of the concrete!

Our team never uses any more pressure than needed to safely clean concrete surfaces. These surfaces can be destroyed a lot easier than people think, especially if they’re only 1-2 years old. Concrete can need 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 gum removal service.


To completely remove gum from concrete and other commercial surfaces we use custom designed hot water power washing equipment 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 equipment, we safely remove gum and surface dirt all while protecting the surface. Our method will also eliminate bacteria and viruses that sometimes found in gum on concrete.

By hiring Woodlands Pressure Wash Plus for routine maintenance commercial cleaning at your property, your property will have a better appearance and your chewing gum removal issues will be dealt with! You will also prevent damage to carpets and other flooring while also making your storefront more inviting to customers.
