efficient removal of chewing gum
Carelessly discarded chewing gum can easily become trodden into pavements, carpets and entrance mats. This quickly makes the area look unsightly, dirty and generally leads to a degrading of the surrounding area.
The unattractive stains which are left dotted around can also have a negative effect on people’s perception of businesses that leave it untreated within their premises.
Chewing gum is a very difficult type of litter to remove. Its sticky nature means conventional cleaning methods struggle to remove it from all types of surfaces.
In public places it is also a criminal offence to drop chewing gum with the offender being liable to be fined under the Environmental Protection Act 1990 and the Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Act.
The quick removal of chewing gum stains helps to ensure the area remains clean and tidy helping to discourage future attacks of graffiti or littering of chewing gum occurring.
