Discarded chewing gum is a worldwide disposal and cleaning problem. Around 20 million people chew gum in the UK each day. Sadly, a lot of chewing gum ends its life on the floor. We can utilise our specialist steam pressure washing or dry ice blasting systems to remove the gum and ensure that the surface is gum free. We can achieve this without damaging or degrading the underlying substrate in the process.
Discarded chewing gum makes public areas, entrances and footpaths look dirty and uncared for, this can be the first impression that your customers have of your business, so it is important to keep these areas clean and free of unsightly chewing gum and associated stains.
Our chewing gum removal teams have safe cleaning methods to avoid disruption to your business, staff and the public. Our steam pressure washing system uses only 70 litres of water per hour compared to less effective traditional pressure washers that use up to 2,500 litres per hour. This allows fast and efficient chewing gum removal without flooding adjacent areas with water. Our dry ice blasting system produces no secondary waste whatever - so we can undertake a water free operation if required.
It is interesting to note that where councils and other authorities have taken their responsibility seriously and kept the area chewing gum free there is quite often very little collateral gum in surrounding areas.
