Graffiti

Dealing with unwanted graffiti is an ongoing challenge in many urban areas. It is unsightly, can be offensive and is often seen as a clear sign that a neighbourhood is starting to go downhill. The problem can start with just one tag or slogan scrawled on a building then, just as one broken window inevitably leads to more, copycat tags and slogans start to follow and their rapid proliferation makes it increasingly difficult and costly to get things cleaned up. 

Aerosol spray paint is the most typical substance used by vandals, however we do come across a variety of other substances such as felt marker pens, waxy products (including lip stick), emulsion and gloss paint. 

Once we have cleaned off the graffiti we often treat the surface with a special anti-graffiti treatment to prevent further attacks. Additional prevention tactics include; creating barriers such as prickly plants, improving lighting and security and keeping the area clean and well maintained,

Cleaning

The key with graffiti is to remove it quickly so we always aim to do this within 24 hours of notification. Our unique SteamPLUS cleaning system really comes into its own for this type of work as pressure can be adjusted to suit different surface materials as well as different kinds of paint product.

Prevention

Always remove graffiti as quickly as possible to avoid copy cat tags. Repeat offenders much prefer places where their work is left up, so this will encourage them to go elsewhere. Applying a special anti-graffiti treatment can also help make it more difficult for vandals to re-offend.
