Thanks everyone for the replies!
I have used strip silence sometimes and manual editing, and while I find it the most precise, it is a last resort thing. I'll definitely check out DeBleeder, as I often struggle with hihat bleed on snare hits after gating.
EDIT: I just checked out the DeBleeder website, isn't it basically a sidechain expander?
