People are generally more likely to simply leave their gum on the ground rather than binning it. While that’s convenient for them, for you as a business or home owner, this can be an eye sore for your potential customers and guests. At Power Washing Ireland, we have 30 years experience in working with all sorts of surfaces and challenges, and we’re going to show you how to effectively deal with chewing gum!

First and foremost, you need to know the surface you’re working with. This is important for later as each surface type can only take so much pressure. Concrete is especially tricky as not all concrete is created equally. Time and density also play a factor in how much pressure to use.

The next factor to take in is the use of hot water. This is the more effective method as it melts the gum more effectively.

Before After

After analysing what surface it is, it’s down to choosing the right flow nozzle. Higher flow nozzles provide the best results. However this is all depending on what surface you’re working with. Finally it comes down to what cleaning technique you use. A fatal error is to get too close to the surface, as this can cause damage. The ideal approach is to power wash the chewing gum in a massage motion.

As you can see, a lot of consideration is required in order to remove something so small and simple. Many people have to pay for repairs as a result of not respecting the steps it takes in power washing your own property.

Bubble gum removal is an important but small step in transforming your business and home property.
