Gum Removal

Need Gum Gone? Chewing gum removal can be a very sticky situation, whether it is stuck on your concrete, parking lot or the side of a building, gum eventually transforms into a dark smudge on your concrete. But usually before that point, visitors and clientele coming into a business will walk on the chewing gum and track it in all over the carpets, rugs and mats. Then it’s embedded deep into the carpet and into the porous surface of concrete, just waiting for another person 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 Corona NY. Find information on our process below:


The best methods of removing chewing gum from concrete usually depends on the gum’s age and the level of penetration into the concrete surface. If the gum was left not long ago and it hasn’t penetrated the surface, we might be 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 gum to freeze into a workable substance compared to a gooey and stringy glob. Once that happens, we slide a putty knife or scraper under the gum residue. Next we slide the scraper slowly beneath the gum and the entire piece should then peel right off the concrete.

The above method is only possible with brand new gum.

When we remove chewing gum that is already black, or is smashed 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 won’t use very high pressure because that could harm the surface of the concrete!

Our crew never uses more pressure than needed to clean commercial concrete surfaces. These surfaces can be destroyed much 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 professional.


To completely remove gum from concrete and other commercial surfaces we use custom designed hot water power washing equipment and special soaps that enable us to clean the surface without resulting in any damages.

Using special 200 degree hot water pressure washers and low pressure, we safely remove gum and dirt while protecting the surface. Our service will also eliminate bacteria and viruses that sometimes found in gum on concrete.

By hiring Queens Pressure Wash Plus for regular maintenance cleaning at your store or office, your commercial property will have better curb appeal and all chewing gum removal issues will be dealt with! You will also prevent damage to carpets and interior flooring while also making your storefront more welcoming to visitors.
