The gum wall at Seattle's Pike Place Market is scheduled for its first deep clean in 20 years

Gum Wall - The gum wall at Seattle's Pike Place Market is scheduled for its first deep clean in 20 years. Although the market cleans the curious tourist attraction every other month with a steamer, this is the first time anyone has tackled the gum's complete removal from the original wall, the Times reports. The job is expected to cost $4,000. Market officials know that avid chewers are still likely to deposit their gum on the wall, but they're hoping the clean-up helps contain its spread across the market's historic walls. at Pike Place Market - Seattle, Washington, United States - Wednesday 4th November 2015 (2 Pictures)
