Graffiti vandals will often target bare surfaces as these present them with a nice blank canvas to apply their graffiti tags. As a result, graffiti can occur in all sorts of locations and present a real problem for property owners and facility managers on how to deal with the clean-up.
Often, our technicians are called out to graffiti removal jobs where on-site cleaners or property owners have attempted to remove the graffiti, only to have made the problem worse or have damaged the surface of the area where the graffiti tags had been.
This is particularly common on bare surfaces like brick or concrete walls.
Despite these substrates being quite hard and durable, they are actually very easily affected by harsh cleaning methods like pressure cleaning, or the use of strong chemicals.
Most commonly used cleaning products won’t do much to help with graffiti removal from concrete or brick, as these substrates are very porous and the paint quickly absorbs into the surface. The use of an unsuitable chemical often results in the graffiti substance soaking even deeper into the porous substrate, leaving an even more difficult removal job.
To make the job of effectively removing graffiti from these surfaces even more difficult is the fact that there are many different types of brick surfaces and concrete structures with differing levels of porosity and strength. Add to this the varying types of paint and substances used for graffiti and it becomes crucial to know what you are dealing with so the correct cleaning solution can be used in order to avoid a costly mess or potential damage to the surface to be cleaned.
Our team of highly trained Surface Restoration Technicians understand each substrate type, graffiti substances, cleaning solutions and the treatment processes required to correctly deal with graffiti removal the first time, every time.
So, if you’re faced with a graffiti removal job. Don’t risk making the problem worse or damage to your property. Give our customer service team a call and we’ll be onsite in no time.
