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, gum eventually changes into a black smudge on your concrete. But usually before that happens, visitors and clientele coming into a store or office will step on the chewing gum and track it in all over the 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 someone to step in it again, to track it somewhere else in your building.

We are proud to offer gum removal as one of our commercial pressure washing services in Kent WA. Find more information about our service below:


The best methods for removing gum from concrete depends on how long the gum has been stuck there and the level of penetration into the concrete surface. If the chewing gum was left recently and it has not penetrated the surface yet, we are sometimes able to remove it 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 more forgiving substance compared to a warm and sticky mess. Once that happens, we slide a putty knife or scraper under the gum residue. Then we move the scraper slowly under the gum and the entire piece should peel right off of the concrete.

The above method is only possible with gum that is brand new.

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

Our team never uses any more pressure than needed to clean concrete surfaces. These types of surfaces can be damaged a lot easier than most people think, especially if they’re only a couple of 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 professional chewing gum removal professional.


To completely remove gum from concrete and other surfaces we use specially designed hot water power washing equipment and professional-grade soaps and detergents that allow us to effectively clean the concrete without resulting in any damages.

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

By hiring Kent Pressure Washing for routine maintenance cleaning at your location, your commercial property will have better curb appeal and all chewing gum removal issues will be over!
