Whether you live in a rural environment, or in the middle of a city, graffiti happens. In the right condition, spray paint can create beautiful works of art, but in most cases, graffiti commonly comes in the form of tags, offensive imagery or words, or designs that are just plain ugly. If paint stains are left sitting they become harder to remove, baking into the façade of a structure, seeping down into porous surfaces, and making your issue a whole lot worse. When you want great results for any type of surface, call a Gorilla for your Aurora graffiti removal services.
Creating A Graffiti Management Program That Works
When dealing with spray paint on exterior surfaces, it is easy to think that a power washer can strip away unwanted designs. High pressure sprays can get rid of some paint stains, but they can also cause a ton of unexpected damage. Instead of firing up the pressure washer just to strip away protective coatings, break windows, or end up with a subpar result, call an expert for your graffiti removal.
When managing an unexpected paint job, basic removal products won’t cut it. There are plenty of products on the market that claim to remove paint, but there is a right way and a wrong way to do this. Throwing a bit of paint thinner on a stain can loosen surface stains, allowing them to drip down wood, vinyl or masonry surfaces. As paint drips, it drags down, bleeding and expanding stains. Even if you do find a way to limit bleeding, simply treating the design itself can leave shadowing behind, which is just another stain.
As a property owner, the key to overcoming graffiti vandalism is consistency. By nature, street artists are competitive. If you have one tag splashed across your home or storefront, it is only a matter of time until another one is laid overtop of it. Artists love to show off their work, so quick graffiti cleaning can help to convince artists that it is better to find a new canvas and leave your property alone.
While communal spaces have whole teams dedicated to graffiti removal, owners of private properties are left on their own. It is easy to report graffiti and hope that it gets settled, but during the waiting period, your curb appeal is dropping, stains are becoming worse and street artists are being tempted to leave their mark. Quick action is a huge factor when it comes to any graffiti removal job, and that is why our team of Gorillas are proud to offer timely service.
