The town of Salmon Arm might have a small population but it still has to deal with urban problems – namely graffiti. British Columbia is known for a healthy relationship with the art world but that doesn’t mean that street artists get a free pass. Vandalism covers everything from simple tags to full murals, so it is important to be prepared. If your home or workspace has received an unwanted paint job, call a Gorilla for your Salmon Arm graffiti removal.
Street artists don’t differentiate between homes and businesses but will leave their marks anywhere that they are able. When graffiti is sitting on your property, it does two things: 1) it looks awful; 2) it gives a bad impression. The exterior of your property is the first impression that it gives to the outside world and unwanted designs can ruin that for you. No matter the size or style pf your paint job, it is important to get rid of designs as quickly as possible. This quick action comes with practical and personal consequences.
The Practical: When spray paint is left to sit on surfaces, it can actually bake deeper down into materials. The longer that paint sits, the more difficult it becomes to remove. Even with the initial stains stripped away, shadowing can hang around. As problems have a habit of only getting worse, so this makes quick action extremely important to the quality of your results.
The Personal: One of the worst aspects of graffiti is that it is often offensive. Having hate speech splashed across walls is a negative experience for anyone but it can also sink a business day, if offensive drawings are keeping customers at bay, call a Gorilla for emergency graffiti removal services.
How We Work
In order to reach graffiti at every level, Gorilla are equipped with all the right tools to get the job done properly. Foaming cleansers are applied to surfaces and left to sit, loosening up surface stains. Discolourations are then treated with a scrub from a Gorilla Brush and a treatment with pressure washer. Once paint is cleared away, Gorillas perform an assessment of the lower levels of discolourations in order to create a plan to better move forward with your project. In an ideal world, paint would just fall off of walls, but our Gorillas hope for sunshine but plan for rain! Gorilla experts can even paint match and colour in areas with obvious shadowing.
