Chewing Gum Removal Machines

Removing unsightly chewing gum from floors, patios, pavements and larger paved or tarmac surfaces is a problem for many and requires the help of efficient chewing gum removal equipment to deal with it.

Chewing gum is made from a gum base with additives which are water soluble whereas the gum base (which is basically a type of synthetic rubber) is not. The nature of gum is that of sticky rubber when it is dropped on the floor, and when it dries it is a hard deposit, with strong adherent properties.

How to remove chewing gum

Several of the machines in our range are capable of, or are specifically designed to remove chewing gum.

The use of high pressure superheated steam (sometimes called dry steam) is a popular method of chewing gum removal. This method uses heat rather than pressure to melt the gum. It is the most effective way using less water and less taking less time. Chemicals are sometimes added to speed up the process further.

The Gum Blaster has been developed specifically to deal with hardened chewing gum. To learn more, click on the links and have a look at the Gum Blaster video to see how easy and effective it is to use.

Choosing a Machine to Remove Chewing Gum

Chewing gum removal machines are designed to address a common urban nuisance – discarded chewing gum. Typically gum removal machines are designed for use on on streets, pavements, and public spaces. These machines play a crucial role in maintaining cleanliness and hygiene in public areas. They also reduce the amount of gum entering ecosystems contributing to environmental preservation.

Because it isn’t water soluble, cleaning up chewing gum is a 2-step process, firstly to remove the gum, then to wash the surface – otherwise, even if the gum has been removed, the result is still a patchy looking pavement. At B&G we’ve helped many customers to clean up chewing gum over the years and have some recommended products to solve the dilemma facing councils and owners publicly accessed properties.

Pressure washer accessory for chewing gum removal

The Gum Blaster chewing gum removal machine is a pressure washer accessory designed for gum removal. It can be used with most hot or cold pressure washers although using hot water is recommended with a maximum operating temperature of 90°C. The amazing cleaning power is achieved through 18 pressure intensifying needle jets, set at a constant height and angle. It is portable quick and easy to use. Weighing in at 2kg it can easily be steered into awkward corners and concentrated on small areas with minimal overspray, making it easy to use in areas where public access should not be impeded. The Gum Blaster will loosen even dried, crusted on gum, which it then collects into a chamber ready for proper disposal. After cleaning heavily gum affected areas we recommend a further surface jet wash to clean the affected areas so that the gum cleaned areas do not stand out.

Dedicated chewing gum removal machines

Alternatively we have a range of self-contained machines dedicated to gum removal. The Matrix GTS Chewing Gum Removal System uses its own generator to heat the gum with steam, then apply detergent which is agitated using a brush attached to the steam nozzle. With a continuous fill boiler, this machine is suitable for use over large areas.

Our range also includes a choice of smaller dedicated chewing gum removal machines for indoor and out door use. From the lighweight i-remove mini gum remover through to the powerful battery powered GumBuster GB1.

One significant advantage of all these machines is their efficiency. They can remove multiple gum deposits in a short time, making them cost-effective for councils and businesses responsible for maintaining clean environments.
