Gum Removal

gum removal in oxnard



Need Gum Gone? Chewing gum removal is a sticky business, whether it’s on your concrete, parking lot or the side of a building, gum eventually transforms into a black smudge on your concrete. But before that point, visitors and clientele coming into a business will walk on it and get it in all over the carpets and entryway mats. Then it’s embedded deep into the carpet and into the porous surface of concrete or asphalt, just waiting for someone to step in it again, to track it somewhere else.

We are happy to provide gum removal as one of our commercial pressure washing services in Oxnard CA. Find more information about our process below:


The best methods of removing gum from concrete usually depends on the gum’s age and the level of penetration into the concrete surface. If the chewing gum was left not long ago and it hasn’t penetrated the surface yet, we are sometimes able to remove it by covering it with ice until the gum freezes, then scraping the gum off with a metal putty knife.

The ice forces the chewing gum to freeze into a workable consistency compared to a gooey and sticky mess. Once that happens, we slide a metal putty knife or scraper directly under the gum residue. Next we move the scraper very slowly under the gum and the entire piece should peel right off the concrete.

The above method is only possible with brand new gum.

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

Our team never uses more pressure than needed to clean commercial concrete. These types of surfaces can be destroyed much easier than most people think, especially if they’re only a few years old. Concrete can need up to 100 years to cure. That is why we always use hot water and the least amount of pressure possible for our gum removal service.


To completely remove chewing gum from parking lots and other commercial surfaces we use custom designed hot water power washing tools and powerful 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 are able to safely remove chewing gum and dirt while protecting the surface. Our process will also eliminate bacteria and germs that can be found in gum on concrete.

By hiring Oxnard Pressure Washing for routine maintenance commercial cleaning at your store or office, your property will have better curb appeal and your gum removal issues will be over!
