Any amateur artist can become a great one but not all public art is appreciated – especially graffiti. Every day, property owners across the greater Toronto area wake up to unwanted paint jobs. These can be small tags or full murals but no matter their size, property owners want them gone. Instead of suffering through ugly or offensive designs, have a Gorilla get rid of them for you. Our Markham graffiti removal services help say goodbye graffiti vandalism and hello clean slate!
What To Expect From Graffiti Artists
No two artists are the same and this goes for street artists as well. Some might have a message to send while others just want to leave their mark, but in either case, they are competitive. This is part of what makes quick action for your removal so important. Basic cleaning products can be found at any hardware or department store but these should never be used on walls. When ordinary paint thinners are used on graffiti, they do just that: thin. This means paint bleeds, dripping and making the stain even bigger. The other issue with amateur removal is overspray. Aerosol paints do not spray in a direct line but tend to fan out. All around main designs, there are small shadows of paint surrounding them. Taking care of main paint sprays but ignoring this overspray still leaves properties looking dingy.
Ignoring paint is dangerous, but so are amateur removal techniques. Don’t let paint give guests, tenants or passersby the wrong impression about your space. In order to give your space everything that it requires, property owners just have to call in a Gorilla!
When To Call in a Gorilla
Regular graffiti removal is a part of any good property management plan but keeping on top of it can be tough. Some areas of Markham might not see much graffiti while in others, it is a daily occurrence. Instead of having to phone in every time a tag is left on your walls, create a treatment plan that works for you. Weekly, bi-weekly or monthly removal plans are available. Whether you are working with private property or public property, there is no stain that our experts can’t handle. Each Gorilla is local to your area, so we are dedicated to getting results for our friends and neighbours. There is a never a bad time to report graffiti, but the sooner, the better. Racist designs or hate speech are removed quickly. In addition to great results, our Gorillas apply a protective coating. This coating might not be able to stop graffiti from happening but it can make removal easier going forward.
