Graffiti deleted for Hathaway House

Hathaway House is a housing association property located on Dove Street in Bristol. It provides a range of low cost social housing for people needing somewhere to live. The property had become a victim of unwanted graffiti which was making it look run down and uncared for.  

Removing unwanted graffiti from buildings

There is a clear distinction between ‘Creative graffiti’ which can look quite striking and is characteristic of this area, and messy, unwanted graffiti ‘tags’ scrawled on the sides of buildings. It's also a fact that once a building has been marked with graffiti tags it becomes a target and soon attracts more of the same – so prompt removal is advisable.

Creating a feel good factor

We are affected by our environment; people don't usually want the place that they live in to look rundown and poorly maintained. Keeping Hathaway House looking clean and up-together can influence how people living there feel about themselves, helping raise their morale. So the managers wanted the graffiti removed and the building cleaned up as quickly as possible and our SteamPLUS system did the job.

Fast and highly efficient jet wash cleaning

SteamPLUS makes light work of graffiti, in fact we can often remove tags in one pass. No harmful chemicals are used, just the power of heat and pressurised steam. Our new vehicle mounted system now has a dual user facility and with two men on the job we are able to get things sorted in almost half the usual cleaning time. The work was, as always, completed to an extremely high standard and the building is now looking clean and fresh. Here's what Managing Agent Tom Brady of MD Building Services said;

"With the amount of graffiti on the building, and the external material being a brick finish, I had my doubts as to whether the graffiti would come off. I was very impressed with the finish your company produced and how quickly you managed to do it. I would definitely consider you for future projects as I was very pleased with your service."
