Chewing Gum

Towns and cities are becoming increasingly blighted by blobs of unsightly, hazardous discarded gum. Steam cleaning makes really light work of removing the gum; the mix of steam and pressure is a killer combination that is both efficient and effective. With a regular contract in place we can provide a cost effective programme of site visits that will keep your outside areas gum-free and far more appealing to visitors. We can also undertake work out of hours which has far less impact on pedestrian traffic or business trading. 

Chewing Gum  Cleaning

Cleaning

Steam cleaning lifts gum off with ease. The steam lifts the gum off with ease, while being able to adjust the pressure ensures minimum damage, so the system can be safely used to clean a whole range of different substrates including; cement, block paving, tarmac and brick.

Chewing Gum  Prevention

Prevention

No one has come up with a truly effective way of preventing people from dropping gum. Signs asking offenders to use bins are a good idea in smoking areas outside bars. Otherwise, having a regular clean up programme may help prevent copy cat behaviour.
