600 per day aint bad for gum removal

ive jsut been to a customer of mine who has a hotel and has just been quoted 600 PER DAY by gumbusters to remove chewing gum from the front walkways anyone know what equipment they use

They use van mounted 'dry' steam cleaners which are particularly good for cleaning gum from paving slabs etc. They are run from a generator and use very little water compared to steam pressure washers which means that you dont need to clear public areas when using them.
The sort of machine they use is very much like a modified Doman Fury ( ) Some of the Gumbuster franchisees are starting to set-up thier own van mounted systems using these to save having to pay the franchise costs.
600 per day is not unheard of and there is scope to set up regular contracts (I heard that one guy does the front of Old Trafford every month with one of these machines)
