17 Apr The growing need for commercial chewing gum removal
Chewing gum is fast becoming a public nuisance as it litters our city streets. Although it may seem harmless, it is unsightly, and when chewing gum is left on pavements and outside shops instead of in the bin it can cause damage to our health and the environment.
Why it is dangerous to the environment
There are different chemicals and ingredients in chewing gum that include paraffin wax, softeners and sugars that are difficult to digest, meaning that birds and other animals face potential danger. Then there is the fact that it is non-biodegradable, which causes problems in our oceans and sewage systems.
Your customers don’t want to see it
Let’s face facts, none of us want to walk across chewing gum littered paths or sit on a deck drinking coffee surrounded by mounds of chewing gum. It looks unhealthy and it is unhealthy. Any new customers will either walk away or will never come back, which is bad for your reputation and pocket.
If chewing gum is not dealt with quickly it becomes harder to remove, and if not disposed of properly it can attract more gum and debris. This is when you need a professional chewing gum removal service.
How a commercial chewing gum removal service can help you
So, how can the professionals help to remove chewing gum? Well, they have the right equipment, training and resources to get the job done quickly and efficiently. When you try to do this job yourself without the correct equipment it takes time, meaning that you either have to do it in your own time or lose precious business hours. The professionals will get all damaged surfaces looking like new again, something that is incredibly difficult to do without the correct cleaners and tools.
Food for thought: Chewing gum stats
– Each year 100,000 tons are consumed
– The average person will chew 250 chewing gum sticks a year
– An average stick of chewing gum costs 3p but costs three times as much to remove
