What To Expect From Graffiti Artists
Spray paint is easy to get at and easy to transport, so this tends to be the main tool for street artists. Aerosol spray cans can be tossed into a bag at a moment’s notice, but the marks that they leave behind can take months or more to get rid of. No matter what sort of art they are interested in, these vandals have one thing in common: they are competitive! One of the main issues facing property owners are repeat paint jobs from competitive artists. One of the most common types of designs left on properties are “tags” or signatures. Leaving a tag against the outside of your house invites other, passing artists to paint over it, marking their territory.
As paint piles up, it can be difficult to keep on top of it. Direct sunlight beating down on walls only makes stains worse. Over time, dark lines and patterns bake further down into the façade of properties, making them more difficult to remove. If this is the case, basic graffiti removal practices just won’t cut it! One of the most important aspects of residential or commercial graffiti removal is understanding what type of paint you are dealing with. For industrial spray paint, graffiti remover chemicals are often used but can mean damage – sometimes unnecessarily. More and more paints are water based and can be removed easily from porous surfaces with the right technique. Some marks are even left behind using nothing more than permanent marker! There are plenty of search engine results that might direct you to this, that or the other but the only way to get proper results for your property is through professional care.
Choosing a Gorilla
From Las Vegas to Clark County, no one can remove graffiti like our Gorillas. Using harsh treatments like paint thinners on sensitive areas or a pressure wash can mean a lot of unnecessary damage. In fact, most graffiti removal products are designed to break down paint but not necessarily care for the condition of your space.
Professional graffiti removal techniques, however, are meant to take care of surfaces while getting rid of paint. Our experts begin by assessing the age and depth of stains, as well as what sort of paint was used. Once this is done, a plan of attack is created. Gorilla Foaming cleansers are used to dig deep into surfaces to break down discolorations. Color can then be brushed away, revealing any shadows that might be left behind. Pressure washing and paint matching are both more aggressive ways to remove spray paint – but they get the job done! Once all traces of paint are gone, specialists apply our anti-graffiti coating in order to prevent future stains.
