Gum Removal

Need Gum Gone? Chewing gum removal is a very sticky business, whether it’s on your concrete, parking lot or on the side of a building, gum eventually turns into a black smudge on concrete. But usually before then, visitors and customers walking into a business will step on the chewing gum and track it in all over the carpets, rugs and entryway mats. Then it’s embedded deep into the carpet fibers and into the porous surface of concrete, just waiting for someone to step in it again, to track it somewhere else in your building.

We are happy to offer gum removal as one of our commercial pressure washing services in Franklin TN. Find information about our methods below:


The best methods of removing chewing gum from concrete usually depends on how long the gum has been stuck there and the level of penetration into the concrete surface. If the gum was left not long ago and it has not penetrated the surface yet, we might be able to remove it by covering it with ice until it freezes, then scraping it off with a metal putty knife.

The ice forces the chewing gum to freeze into a more forgiving consistency compared to a warm and stringy glob. Once the chewing gum is frozen, we slide a putty knife or scraper right under the gum. Next we slide the scraper very slowly beneath the gum and the whole piece should then peel right off of the concrete.

The above method is only possible with brand new gum.

When we remove chewing gum that has turned black, or is 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 service, we won’t use very high pressure because that might damage the surface of the concrete!

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


To remove gum from concrete and other surfaces we use custom designed hot water pressure washing equipment and professional-grade soaps and detergents that allow us to clean the concrete without causing any damages.

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

By hiring AllPro Franklin Pressure Washing for routine maintenance commercial cleaning at your building, your property will have a better appearance and all gum removal issues will be dealt with! You will also ensure less damage to carpets and other flooring while also making your storefront much more welcoming to clientele.
