Chewing Gum Removal

An example of the Stain Eaters chewing gum removal & concrete restoration


If your business fronts onto a busy street, particularly if there is a nearby bus/tram stop, it is likely that people will carelessly dispose of their chewing gum around the entrance of your building. Most business owners consider customer experience to be of high importance; if a customer steps on a lump of sticky gum as they enter your building – they will have a negative opinion before they even talk to you!

After a short time, the gum sticks like glue and becomes very difficult to remove. Dirt sticks to the gum and a blotchy, unhygienic mess is created. To make matters worse, if you have carpeted floors, the gum that was stepped in outside, may then be transferred inside your building.

So what can be done about this? Most people don’t have the time or inclination to scrape away at each individual piece of gum. General purpose cleaners contain harsh chemicals that will strip away much more than just the gum. Dry ice and steam may remove the gum, however they don’t clean the rest of the area, leaving a blotchy, inconsistent finish.

In our 35+ years of experience, we have found that super-hot high pressure cleaning is the best way to melt and dissolve chewing gum. This not only removes the gum, it cleans the surface behind it, leaving your business entrance or pathway looking fresh and clean.

We provide pedestrian and traffic control equipment and apply for any council permits if necessary. Waste water is collected and pumped into garden beds, helping the environment.

If the chewing gum is very old or the surface has been faded from UV rays, we will also use a specialist cleaning solution to provide a consistent, even finish.
