Hello, seeking advice around a problem with indoor flag stone that was cleaned/burned with javex, there is a lot of gum stuck to the surface, (in a bar); how do we clean it up and maybe apply some kind of finish; we're open to a controlled damage approach, maybe go at it with a wire brush grinder attachment. the stone is white now, but is probably undamaged under the gum.

Any suggestions?

hard to say

Hi Steve,

It's hard to say without seeing exactly what the gum is or looks like. I'm also not familiar with Javex.

I looked at the Prosoco site and found a solution called 800 Stain Remover. My dad has never used it, so we can't comment on whether that's the right product. You should go to this page:

and take a look at their products. Better yet, you should call them at 1-800-255-4255. They are friendly on the phone and might have the best solution for your problem.

After you remove the gum, you do want to put on a quality sealer. Prosoco can help you with that too.

Great luck!
