Chewing Gum Removal

Gumhas been in use for more than 5000 years. The Aztecs, Ancient Greeks, Egyptians, and even Santa Anna were known to chew the thick sap like substance that came from certain types of trees. Thomas Adams, however, was the inventor credited with first mass- producinggumfrom the Manilkara Chicle tree. He starting producing it for worldwide distribution after he first tried and failed at using the Chiclegumto make rubber to use in making rubber tires.

For as long asgumhas been being chewed, businesses have been finding wads of it stuck to surfaces all over their buildings and patrons have been stepping on it and getting it stuck to their shoes.Chewing gumis sticky when it’s fresh but it gets very hard and leaves unsightly stains on concrete, brick, and many other surfaces.Gumhas been widely considered a public nuisance. Singapore has been battling public vandalism and the one most known and controversial has been a ban onchewinggum, including all sales and chewing for more than 20 years because of the unsightly mess that it causes. Once it has been stepped on, it attracts dirt, and then gets stepped on again and so on until it creates very unattractive black spots on sidewalks, parking lots, and drive-thru pads.
