Graffiti Removal Through Pressure Washing

By in


Today, some people consider graffiti to be a work of art in itself, a sort of new-age urban art reserved for inner city metropolises. However, to most people, graffiti is vandalism and must be taken care of. Graffiti involves the using of spray cans of paint to “tag” or mark up and deface walls, monuments, and other structures in the name of artistic expression. Everything from train cars to building walls can be damaged by such vandalism. Often times business owners will arrive at work one day only to see their once-beautiful establishment being marked up by vandals who go around tagging places. Fortunately for business owners, help in removing the graffiti is just a phone call away when you contact a professional graffiti removal and power washing service.

Studies have proven that speedy removal of graffiti drastically prevents a re occurrence of tagging, often by discouraging would-be taggers from wasting their time and energy on tagging something that will just be cleaned up again. The idea that the premises is being up kept and that the defacers are likely being watched makes them less likely to strike your business again. Power washing is a powerful, safe, and effective way of removing graffiti from hard surfaces without any potential for damage.

Pressure washing uses a stream of highly pressurized water to blast free any dirt, grime, graffiti, or other particles on a surface while also leaving the integrity of the surface intact. This process is effective on a variety of surfaces, from wood, to metal, to stone and brick. Using a professional contractor to do this work is important for many reasons.

Professional power washing companies have the experience and know-how to deal with all kinds of situations and a variety of different surfaces and materials. Knowing what equipment to use for what kinds of siding and the kinds of environmentally-friendly chemicals needs to clean with are very important to prevent damage and do the job correctly. This requires research and expertise often well beyond that of the typical home or business owner.

In the past, sand blasting was often used to remove graffiti from tagged-up surfaces, but unfortunately this damages the surfaces being cleaned and leads to increased deterioration of the building.
