Here's a video on the variety of uses a steam cleaner can be applied on. In the video you can see him removing tape residue off glass and he removes gum from concrete.

I know many of you guys use pressure washers to remove gum off concrete, but what's nice about the steam cleaner is that, it offers controlled pressure. So you can use this machine around pedestrian and not have to close off the street.

Its also nice for post construction clean up. It will remove paint overspray and adhesive residues.

I would like to see what it could do in a nasty shower stall.

It will work great on shower stall with a little chemical. It's a little slow but it will work.

Good video, is there any kind of risk of the glass cracking when using steam like that on glass when it is cold outside?

It is a possibility you could crack the glass in cold climates but that myth on dual paned windows was de-bunked with hot water-fed. 10 degees in Denver Colorado Shawn Gavin puts 180 degree water on glass. Does nothing. Reason is the space in between the glass is warmer than air temperature making the temperature of the glass higher than air temperature as well.

Todd, Also, if there are any stress cracks, near or behind the gaskets that could spread... so a disclaimer is never a bad idea....

Wow! That is incredible! Thank you so much for posting this video, I have used steam cleaning in my business for all sorts of circumstances but had no idea about cleaning gum off of concrete. That might be a good additional service to offer in my business. Thanks so much for posting!

you have posted a great video thank you so much for that. As we know that steam cleaning uses steam for cleaning, by using this not only it remove dirt, it may also remove grease from engines. This is Eco-friendly also.

Mike Draper used the steam cleaner recently to remove the black streaks from this awning. He was using an awning cleaner first with agitation and the stains were embedded. Add the steam cleaner with the triangular adapter with microfiber towel wrapped around it, and it begins to disappear.

I have an account that this would be great for. They have 2 brick paver entrances that are laid in with sand so I can't use pressure washer. I usually just spray on a cleaner and use 175 with tile and grout brush than use scrapper for gum.
