Melt away the Gum

Chewing gum when it dries attracts dirt and grime and leaves unsightly dark blotches on footpaths that are unhygienic. Chewing gum is chemically inert so it is not easily broken down and removed using chemicals. Dry Ice and steam processes do work but they are extremely slow and don’t clean the entire footpath which can lead to blotchiness and over clean marks.

The method that gives the best result and is most cost efficient is hot water pressure cleaning.

Our Surface Restoration Vehicles are set up in every way to cater for the removal of chewing gum, including all the necessary pedestrian and traffic control equipment to block pathways and warn pedestrians. Surface Restoration Vehicles also have boiler units incorporated that superheats water and is quickly able to melt and dissolve chewing gum, releasing its bond from the surface via pressure cleaning.

Coupled with this we can collect waste water (no chemical is used in this process) and pump it to garden beds helping the surrounding environment. All in all a complete one stop shop saving you money!

This process not only removes the chewing gum but also cleans the entire substrate at the same time resulting in a fresh new pathway. Chemical treatment is sometimes required to get an even finish if the chewing gum is very old and the concrete has been oxidised by UV radiation from the sun leaving blotchiness.

Concrete Cleaning

Over time, concrete gets covered in stains and algae and moss that fills the tiny pores in the concrete making it dark in colour and slippery under foot.

Using advanced water jetting technology, our Surface Restoration Technicians are able to remove stains from concrete like rubber tyre marks, oil stains, moss and algae, rust, tar, paint, and fibreglass resin from the pores of the concrete surface, restoring it back to its original condition without any substrate damage or cleaning marks visible at the completion of the job.

The secret is using equipment that is water efficient, fast to use to reduce time on site and performed by well-trained technicians that don’t leave behind cleaning marks and lines when your concrete dries out.
