Signage and billboards have an important role to play for many types of business, from providing information about products, services and events, to brand awareness and attracting visitors to your premises.
In order to accomplish this, signage is nearly always positioned in highly prominent locations that allow them to be easily seen. So, when signage is hit by graffiti, this can have a very negative impact on not only the presentation of the location where the signage sits, but also the overall image of the company or brand.
Quickly dealing with graffiti on signage is crucial to not only protecting your image, but also vastly improves the ability to fully remove the graffiti from the signage without damage to the finish.
Swift removal also sends a message to graffiti vandals that any graffiti will be instantly removed, acting as a deterrent and helps to prevent further attacks.
Depending on the type of material used in the construction of the signage, the graffiti removal process and cleaning solutions used can vary.
Printed signage is one of the most easily damaged surfaces when using cleaning products to remove graffiti, so great care needs to be taken in order to protect the print.
Having a quality anti-graffiti coating applied to this type of signage is highly recommended, as it greatly improves the ability to effectively clean graffiti tags without damage to the printed finish.
This can also help to make the signage last much longer when exposed to harsh UV and environmental conditions like dust and traffic fumes.
Regular cleaning of signage will also help to keep it looking good and lasting longer by preventing dirt and grime build up. The cost of this can be much less that paying for an expensive replacement.
Pressure cleaning or abrasive cleaning methods are often not recommended, as they will usually damage signage quickly, effecting not only the print but also the surface underneath, reducing its resistance to things like moisture and dirt.
