Graffiti Removal Questions Answered
There are many different types of graffiti, though the most common is spray paint. In some cases, the artist (we use that term loosely in this case, of course) may choose latex paint or another medium. And the graffiti removal process varies slightly depending on the medium used and the surface that’s been vandalized.
Red spray paint is used most often, and it’s the toughest to lift. Concrete tends to be the surface that’s targeted most frequently. And the combination of red spray paint with concrete can be a real headache. Concrete is porous which makes graffiti removal a two step process.
But understanding the surfaces allows for us to treat the graffiti in the most effective manner. Even when it’s red spray paint on concrete. Whether it’s a sign, your garage door, your driveway, or any area around your property, we can effectively remove the graffiti for you.
Graffiti Removal Process
We use a special detergent that we’re able to alter based on the surface being cleaned. We brush the detergent on and let it dwell. We then wash the detergent off which lifts the graffiti.
Because concrete is a porous surface, the paint can seep deep into the pores. It soaks paint up like a sponge. So when we’re working with a concrete surface, we usually have to treat it twice on two separate occasions to fully remove the graffiti.
Graffiti Removal from Historic Buildings and Other Sensitive Surfaces
With historic buildings, in order to protect the integrity of the structure, you can’t just use any detergent or “blast” away the graffiti with high-pressure power washing. It’s important to bear this in mind when selecting a graffiti removal company.
The detergent we work with has a line that’s suitable to use on sensitive surfaces. So our process is safe to use on historic homes and buildings without compromising the surface or the integrity of the building.
