QUESTION OF THE WEEK: Chewing Gum Removal

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

Posted by Heidi Schwartz

This Question of the Week comes from the Facilities Management Group on LinkedIn. 

Do you have any ideas for removing chewing gum from a hard porous surface, such as brick pavers? I’ve tried the freeze spray, and I can remove what is on the surface, but the tiles are porous enough to allow a lot of residue to seep down beneath the surface. The resulting unsightly residue is what I don’t know how to remove.
