Removing chewing gum from carpets

From: Flavia Perugini <fperugini<-a>

We have a serious problem with chewing gum being dropped by visitors
onto the modern carpets in our buildings.  Several attempts to
remove the gum have been made but we are still looking for the best
method and material. Could anyone advise on a remover easy and safe
to use, and possibly not releasing vapors that could affect objects
in the open displays?
