Property management is hard enough without having to worry about graffiti vandalism. The worst part? Street artists really don’t care. These vicious Van Goghs leave their mark on homes and storefronts all across Moncton and the surrounding area. Every day, owners wake up to unwanted paint jobs. Instead of learning to live with ugly and offensive designs or spending a fortune on ineffective cleaning products, call a Gorilla! Our Moncton graffiti removal services strip away paint without damaging your exterior spaces. The right technique, the right removal products and the right attitude makes removing spray paint a breeze!
What To Know About Graffiti
On the surface, a bit of paint does not seem very threatening. Grabbing a roller and applying a new coat of paint is common practice but aerosol paint works differently than the stuff that comes inside a can. Instead of one solid brush stroke, spray cans fan out. This means property owners are left with one main design, surrounded by small bits of overspray. This overspray is just one aspect of what makes proper graffiti removal so difficult, while the other is time. With every day that passes, sunshine bakes sprays deeper into the façade of properties. Quick action can make removal that much easier, but letting pieces of graffiti sit means more stubborn stains and a more in-depth approach.
Public art can be a great thing but less so when it makes its way to your doorstep. Whether it is public property or private property, owners and managers are desperate to say “goodbye graffiti”. It is simple enough to stroll through downtown Moncton, collecting paint thinners and scrub brushes. The trouble comes when these are put to use. Amateur removal techniques often make stains worse. Thinners dislodge surface stains, allowing them to bleed downward, extending stains. It is important to call professionals in order to get the results that you want and need but figuring out which company suits you can be complicated. It is easy enough to report graffiti but it is more difficult to wait for someone to show up. This is just one of the advantages to calling in a Gorilla!
How We Work
Each member of the Gorilla Property Services team is local to your area. This means that you get the dedication of a friend and neighbour, all while getting the results of an expert. Instead of just dealing with each problem as it comes, our Gorillas like to stay prepared. Each removal happens in steps, starting off with a proper assessment. Eco-Friendly cleaning products are then used to loosen stains which are then scrubbed using speciality Gorilla brushes. Once initial paint stains are removed, extra steps can be taken to ensure the best results possible. Power washing and even paint matching are all a part of the process depending on the severity of the stain. Once all is said and done, a protective coating is applied to make future graffiti removal quicker and easier.
