Blaenau Gwent Council, dedicated to enhancing the appeal of their communities, embarked on a mission to eradicate the unsightly problem of chewing gum staining in their borough. This challenge to remove chewing gum extended across three key towns, with the chewing gum primarily defacing bus stops, car parks, and pavements in the town centres.
To restore the visual charm of these areas, Blaenau Gwent Council sought the expertise of APT, a well-known name in cleaning and restoration services (known for their expertise – remove chewing gum!). This case study unveils the systematic process through which APT successfully remove chewing gum and gum stains, underlining their commitment to rejuvenating public spaces.
Blaenau Gwent Council secured a grant aimed at eliminating the pervasive issue to remove chewing gum and remaining staining within their borough’s three main towns. The problem was prevalent in critical areas such as bus stops, car parks, and town center pavements. The client’s objective was clear: to restore the cleanliness and visual appeal of these public spaces.
The solution to remove chewing gum centred on a systematic approach that combined specialised equipment and effective cleaning chemicals. The key steps included:
Cordoning Off Public Areas: To ensure a systematic and efficient cleaning process, public areas were cordoned off one section at a time.
Utilising a Variety of Cleaning Equipment: we employed a range of equipment, including jetting equipment, steamers, lances, and scrapers, to effectively remove chewing gum stains.
Chemical Cleaning: In collaboration with our sister company, which provides commercial cleaning chemicals nationwide, we sought expert advice to select the most suitable products for this industrial and commercial cleaning task. We used Citra Cleanse and Ultramax 2020 when needed, but the primary method was a steam cleaning process to loosen and remove chewing gum, followed by meticulous scraping.
The outcome of APT’s chewing gum removal efforts was highly successful. The areas were meticulously cleaned and restored, eradicating the chewing gum staining that had marred the public spaces. Blaenau Gwent Council expressed their satisfaction with the results, and even local shop owners commented on the visible difference. Such was the success of the project that shop owners even extended further cleaning work opportunities to APT, highlighting the positive impact of their work to remove chewing gum across Blaenau Gwent.
