No matter how many precautions you might take, your property is always at risk of an unwanted paint job. Street artists do not keep strict 9-5 hours and are most active during late night and early morning hours. This means that property owners and managers are waking up to unsightly murals and offensive tags on a regular basis. Instead of learning to live with spray paint or struggling with amateur removal, call a Gorilla. Our Coquitlam graffiti removal services strip paint from homes and workplaces safely and effectively.
What Graffiti Means For You
Even the smallest pieces of graffiti can make a big impression. Offensive symbols or hate speech drags down curb appeal, makes a negative impression and can deter foot traffic for businesses. This is what makes quick removal so important. Unlike scraping paint from your skin, your walls require more specialized care. Plenty of property owners are quick to reach for pressure washers but a heavy hand does not always mean results. Aiming high pressure sprays at delicate materials can mean damage and costly repair bills. This is one reason that graffiti vandalism is often left on the back burner. The longer that paint is left to sit, the deeper it bakes into the façades of properties, and invites even more paint. Street artists are competitive. Having a signature or design splashed across your walls is enough to encourage another artist to leave their own mark behind.
With so much at stake, it is not uncommon for homeowners to try to take removal into their own hands. Paint thinners are a dime a dozen but using the wrong removal products can enlarge stains instead of getting rid of them. The wrong cleaning products might loosen surface stains, letting them bleed down walls, enlarging areas of discolouration. When you are ready to say “goodbye graffiti”, our Gorillas have all the skills, tools and knowledge to help.
Coquitlam Graffiti Removal: At Work or at Home
Property management is a full-time job, never mind adding it to an already busy schedule. This is where our Gorillas come in. After years in the industry, our team of experts have developed a multi-step approach to graffiti removal that gets rid of any and all staining, every time. The first step to any successful treatment is a proper assessment. Services are customized based on the type of paint used and the surrounding areas. Eco-friendly cleaners are then used to loosen surface stains, which can then be brushed away with speciality brushes. Paint designs and overspray are then treated with soft or power washers. To finish off, a protective coating is applied to make future stains easier to remove.
