All over North America, graffiti has never been more popular than it is now. Keeping up with paint stains around the city keeps our Gorillas on their toes. Street artists and taggers don’t sleep, so there is always a call-out waiting to happen. If your home or business has been given an impromptu paint job, call a Gorilla to fix your problems quickly and efficiently. Gorilla specialists have spent years perfecting a Burnaby graffiti removal that works. All it takes is one phone call to help you say “Goodbye graffiti”.
The Quicker the Better
One thing that all graffiti removal programs have in common, is that time is of the essence. The quicker that paint is pulled away from surfaces, the better your chances for a complete removal with no shadowing left behind. Quick action can also help with those façades that may be a little more sensitive to the paint used by taggers. Allowing graffiti to sit, or planning on removing it at a later date may cause ‘ghosting’ on a surface such as this. Basically meaning, the paint has penetrated the building material. When this occurs an outline of the damage can still be seen, even after removal. Over time, sunlight can bake stains deeper into the façade of homes and businesses. Ignoring even small designs or tags can mean needing to pay for an entire new paint job.
In addition to getting the best possible results, quick action sends a message. The whole point of marking up a property is that street artists can walk by and admire their handiwork. Getting rid of these designs quickly means that they will go elsewhere for a more lasting result. Some designs or murals can be pretty but they are often ugly or offensive. Leaving these to sit sends the wrong message about your home or commercial property. In order to help make the best impressions across our communities, Gorillas prioritize racial slurs or hate speech for speedy removal.
