Graffiti removal can be a challenging task, especially when it comes to masonry walls made of materials like brick, concrete, sandstone, and granite. The spray paint or graffiti substance penetrates deeply into the surface, and removing it requires a skilled technician with the right cleaning solutions, technology and expertise.
Unfortunately, some companies lack the necessary skills and experience and often cause more harm than good.
Hiring an inexperienced contractor can result in a host of problems, such as surface erosion, chemical burns, mortar joint damage, and gouged soft stones. Additionally, water can infiltrate the building and cause damage to carpets, floorboards, stock and other areas.
The use of abrasive blasting techniques can also lead to permanent damage, such as pitting, rising damp, and salt deposits, which can cause structural failure and premature brick crumbling in the future.
Additionally, inexperienced workers may also engage in unsafe practices, which can lead to liability claims.
When delicate materials like bricks and stones are damaged by incorrect chemical selection or pressure cleaning techniques, the only way to fix the problem is to remove the bricks and replace them, which can be extremely costly and almost impossible to match perfectly. You may also face ongoing issues with salt deposits, rising damp, and structural damage for years to come.
