Bristol graffiti cleaning

Barnett Developments is a property development company based in Bristol. Their Portland Heights block of flats is on Dean street, near Portland Square in St Paul’s. 

The large cream wall on Portland Heights regularly gets tagged and offered a tempting target during St Paul’s carnival. By Monday morning following the carnival festivities the wall was covered in obscene words.  

Rapid graffiti removal 

Lorna Barnett, Director at Barnett Developments, called us first thing on Monday morning to report the graffiti. When she came into her office opposite Portland Heights on Tuesday morning the graffiti was gone.  

Graffiti assist 

Barnett Developments use our graffiti assist service. It’s designed for buildings that are regularly tagged with unwanted graffiti, offering a value-for-money service that helps keep buildings’ exteriors graffiti free. 

We inspect the building to assess graffiti damage and how frequently the building is tagged before we estimate a monthly fee. We then clean and coat the building to protect the surfaces and make them easier to clean next time they’re tagged. Depending on the level of service you choose we include regular spot checks to remove any new graffiti from your building, reduced fees on call outs and reduced fees on emergency removals.  

For Portland Heights we suggested applying a protective coating to make the surface easier to clean. Because the wall had been tagged multiple times before, the cleaning results were becoming less effective. Removing paint from paint is difficult; to get the best results you have to remove both the graffiti and the base layer to properly eradicate all markings before repainting the wall. This is both time consuming and costly.  

Coating the walls seals the surface, protecting the base layer of paint and creating a barrier so the graffiti is easier to clean and doesn’t involve removing any of the building’s exterior paint. 

A happy customer 

Barnett Development’s Director, Lorna Barnett says of working with OneFifty: 

“I’ve known Max for years and OneFifty are always reliable, quick to respond and produce high-quality results. 

“Max recommended we coat the wall on Portland Heights to offer extra protection and improve the cleaning results next time it got hit with graffiti.  

“I was thrilled with the speed at which the St Paul’s carnival graffiti was removed and the wall didn’t have a mark on it, the results were definitely better than before. 

“OneFifty are always responsive. Max replies quickly to let me know when one of the team can come out to do the work and I’m thrilled with the professional graffiti removal they achieved less than 24 hours after my call.”
