Graffiti Removal Service
There is nothing more frustrating than coming into your premises to start your day’s work and being met by messages or images scrawled on the walls. It is an act of vandalism but, more importantly for you, it is a major annoyance. It takes energy, time and money to address the problem of graffiti, but it is something that needs immediate attention before it can cause damage or offence. It also becomes more difficult to remove the longer it is left.
Graffiti can be unsightly. However, it can be much worse than that if the content is abusive or contains offensive language. Having this sort of multi-coloured splash on the side of your building can also have a damaging impact on your business. Some potential customers may be deterred from visiting your premises. Clearly, it is essential to remove it as soon as possible. This can be a problem if you are relying on traditional cleaning techniques.
At the Real Cleaning Company, we use the latest equipment and have staff who are trained thoroughly and professionally to deal with the unique problems that graffiti removal can present. One common issue is that few businesses allow for this service in their budgets. Therefore, it is important that you find a reliable company that can do the job at a competitive price. We pride ourselves on the quality of our workmanship as well as the fact that we provide good value for money.
Graffiti can take many forms and the way we approach the job will depend on each individual case. For example, the cleaning process will differ if the vandals have used paint rather than chalk or have glued posters to walls rather than apply adhesive labels. Other items used can include marker pens, ballpoint pens and waxy materials. The nature of the removal work and the time the job will take can also vary depending on the surface that has been vandalised.
What surfaces can you remove graffiti from?
Vandals determined to leave their mark will do so regardless of the surface. We can remove graffiti from a range of places, including buildings, fences and freestanding areas such as bus shelters. Among the surfaces that are frequently targeted are:
- Flat surfaces
- Uneven surfaces
How can you prevent graffiti?
Prevention is an important part of dealing with the problem. It is better to be protected from the risk of becoming a victim than to wait until vandals strike. We can offer advice on techniques designed to make your premises less vulnerable to attack. If you can prevent any future problems, it can be better financially than having to have a graffiti clean up when you discover that slogans or offensive language have been daubed on your building.
Reacting quickly to the appearance of graffiti can prevent copycat vandals following up an attack. If you are the unfortunate victim, it is also worth acting once the property has been restored to its former state to prevent any recurrence. There are protective coatings which may be suitable for some buildings, while restricting access can also act as a deterrent. We are happy to discuss your company’s needs.
How long does it take to remove?
The time taken to do the job will vary depending on how ingrained the graffiti has become. The best way to avoid a lengthy job is to deal with the problem as quickly as possible after you discover it. Over time, the graffiti becomes more difficult to remove.
We employ a removal technique that uses compressed air and enables us to remove the graffiti without damaging the surface. It is also safe for the environment. After removing the graffiti, we can apply a coating that makes it easier to deal with the problem if the vandals return.
