There is no denying that art is a part of life – and an important part at that! In any city, no matter the size, there is art work in galleries and there is street art splashed across walls. Graffiti can come in the form of murals or in the form of smaller tags, but no matter how you look at it, any unwanted design is vandalism.
Street art has become so commonplace that you might not even notice it as you walk by but spray paint is hard to ignore when it is splashed across your property. Luckily, our Gorillas offer professional Chilliwack graffiti removal to residential and commercial properties in your area!
Goodbye Graffiti: The Importance of Quick Action
Graffiti can happen anywhere, at any time. You might go to sleep with a clean slate, only to wake up to a stained space full of patterns and designs. Instead of dealing with a visually appealing mural, owners and property managers are often facing off against tags, or signatures.
Tags might not seem so bad when compared to offensive language or designs but these tiny calling cards can lead to large-scale problems. Street artists are competitive. Having a sitting tag on your walls can mean inviting competing artists to leave their own mark, which just layers paint over paint, making removal that much more difficult.
If marks do happen to be offensive, these designs send the wrong message to guests, customers and even passersby. The wrong impression can lead to a bad reputation and can have a negative impact on your business. Leaving paint to sit over long periods also allows materials to seep down into the façade of walls, making removal that much more difficult. Don’t wait for a worst-case scenario when you can call a Gorilla instead.
Chilliwack Graffiti Removal Services: Professional Care
Despite how common graffiti vandalism is, finding the right removal services, is not. Over the counter or DIY cleaning products might dull discolouration a bit but these are not enough to get the right results. Amateur methods might also cause paint bleeding or leave overspray and shadowing behind. When you want complete paint removal, it is always better to call a professional.
Treating aerosol sprays and other paint products has never been easy, but our Gorillas have found a way to make it more bearable! The key to proper graffiti removal is to understand the products and materials that you are dealing with. The Gorilla approach to paint removal can be made to suit any material, including concrete, wood, utility boxes and many other outdoor construction materials.
There is no magical spell for graffiti removal; it takes experience, knowledge and a whole lot of elbow grease. The wrong technique can drive paint further into surface layers while a heavy hand can damage vulnerable materials like stucco. The trick to getting the right results is a multi-step approach and that is exactly how our Gorillas work.
The Gorilla Approach
The first step to any successful service is a proper inspection. These assessments can be done by eye or by using a site map across larger properties. Instead of introducing harsh chemicals into living or work spaces, our team of experts use low pressure sprays, soft bristle brushes and environmentally friendly products.
Because graffiti vandalism is often a repeat issue, our property care specialists look to the future. Applying an anti-graffiti coating can’t stop vandalism from happening but it can make removal a breeze. Call today to request a free quote from your friendly neighbourhood Gorillas.
Choosing local care means prompt services with access to scheduled care and excellent customer service. Instead of being just another number on a call sheet, Gorilla clients are able to call on experts in the community that already understand what properties are up against. From a condo complex to a heritage home or storefront, there is nothing that our Gorillas can’t handle.
