Gum Removal Services

Dried gum that has been in place for a long time can cause problems. It collects dirt and grime, stains to an unsightly black and makes the place look awful. Customers may step on it, touch it or sit on it, which leads them to think your business isn’t clean or well-kept.

If you’ve ever tried to remove it on your own, you know how difficult it can be. Removing dried chewing gum without damaging surfaces is always a challenge, but not for the professionals at Washh who know exactly how to deal with gum removal.

Pressure Washing Gum Off the Right Way

Gum isn’t only unsightly, but it can also be annoying when you or your customers accidentally step on it. Rid your commercial property of chewing gum to get it looking like it used to.

Hot Water Pressure Washing

Hot water is, by far, more effective than cold water when it comes to gum removal pressure washing. Cold water can cut into concrete, whereas heat can melt the gum off. But, pressurized hot water can be dangerous when left in the wrong hands, which is why it calls for professional help.

The Proper Technique

With the use of hot water pressure washing, adopt a gentle massaging technique, maintaining a safe distance from the surface to prevent damage.

The Right Equipment

 In addition to the proper technique, make sure to use the right equipment to remove gum from surfaces. A 25-degree nozzle tip allows you to combine the right pressure and angle to safely and effectively get rid of gum, thereby restoring the surface.

How to Remove Gum from Various Surfaces

Some gum can just be scraped off, but others — those that have embedded onto the surface over time — are more difficult to remove. Sometimes, the task is made even more difficult due to the surface the gum is stuck to. It’s important to tailor your methods depending on the surface material in order to get the best results.


Removing gum from concrete usually calls for a hot pressurized water at a level of 3,000 PSI coupled with a 25-degree nozzle. For older gum, try spraying a degreaser or lubricant like WD-40 first before applying pressurized water to knock the gum right off.


Because brick tends to absorb moisture, it’s best to rub ice on the gum first to let it harden. This will make it easier to scrape off using just a butter knife. Then, to remove any remnants, make sure to wet the brick surface first prior to applying detergent. Use low-pressure water coupled with a 25-degree nozzle to rinse.

To remove gum from vinyl surfaces, adopt the same ice cube technique to allow the gum to harden before using a butter knife to scrape it off parallel to the vinyl material. Don’t scrape using a downward motion as that may damage the vinyl. Then, wash the area with soap and water using low pressure and a 25-degree nozzle.


First, rub an ice cube on the gum to let it stiffen before scraping off with a butter knife. A lubricant like WD-40 can also work for older gum that’s embedded into the grain. Then, apply a wood cleaner to the area before rinsing it off with a 25-degree nozzle and low-pressure water.
