Got Gum Stains? 3 Reasons They’re as Bad as Graffiti

Believe it or not, that sticky, pink stuff that turns into black blotches around the common areas of your business has some similarities to graffiti. Here are 3 reasons gum stains can be just as detrimental to your business as graffiti tags:

Got Gum Stains? 3 Reasons They're as Bad as Graffiti

1) They multiply. Just like one graffiti tag can lead to more, so can one unsightly bubble gum blotch on your business walkways, sidewalks, and benches. If you don’t want more of the same, it is important to have gum stains removed quickly and thoroughly.

2) They leave a bad impression. Sticky, ugly gum spots devalue the hard work you have put into creating a positive reputation with your customers. They create a feeling of uncleanliness and detract from the environment and experience you are trying to provide your clients as they enter your shopping center or business. Like graffiti, they are not the type of “mark” you are trying to leave!

3) They’re difficult to remove.  Left to sit, gum can seep into porous surfaces like concrete, stone, and wood and become very difficult to remove. Ever try to scrape off an old gum wad yourself? Then you know how difficult and messy it can be to completely remove it. Add in the hot summer sun and you’re going to need even more elbow grease or possibly risk costly repairs down the road.
