Graffiti is defined as illegal markings such as drawings, messages, or tags that are painted, sprayed, or written on walls and other surfaces.
It can be seen everywhere – from train stations and bridges to building walls and parks and is estimated to cost UK taxpayers over £1 billion a year to remove.
Not only are these markings illegal, but they can also often be unsightly, offensive, and challenging to remove without causing damage.
In this article, we discuss the impact of this type of vandalism and explain how to remove it.
The Impact of Graffiti
It can damage brand reputation: A business’s exterior is a visual representation of its brand. When this is vandalised, it can have a negative impact on a brand’s reputation and deter potential customers.
It’s costly to remove: Local authorities are not responsible for clearing graffiti on private property, so repeated attacks can become expensive to remove over time.
It’s damaging: Graffiti can be tough to remove and can damage surfaces such as soft and porous stone if treated incorrectly.

Whether graffiti is on a small or large scale, using the right techniques is vital. Please read our guide on removing graffiti here.
If you don’t know how to remove graffiti or have access to the right tools, then damage is inevitable. Hiring a professional cleaning contractor to do the job for you ensures the job is done correctly and the surface underneath is preserved.
Our Graffiti Removal Methods
Our team of technicians are highly trained in graffiti removal and can quickly and safely remove graffiti from every kind of surface, including:
- Soft stone
- Wooden fences
We use the following professional techniques to remove markings safely without damaging any surfaces:
DOFF Steam Cleaning
Using only low pressure, 150°C steam, this technique safely removes unwanted markings without damaging the surface underneath. It is particularly useful for use on delicate surfaces such as stone and wood and is chemical-free and environmentally friendly.
TORC Abrasive Cleaning
The TORC system uses abrasive granulate stone and water, which is expelled under pressure through a vortex nozzle to blast away paint particles. As no toxic or hazardous chemicals are used, this is also an environmentally friendly removal method.
Our professional graffiti removal service is designed to remove unsightly graffiti quickly. It also prevents future attacks thanks to an anti-graffiti coating.
