No matter what size of city that you live in, vandalism is always a problem. Our Gorillas might not be able to tape up broken windows or get scratches out of cars but they can handle spray paint better than anyone. Small tags or full-blown murals can pop up at any time or in any place but that doesn’t mean that your property needs to be stuck with an unwanted paint job. If street artists have left their mark on your home or commercial space, trust a professional for your Selkirk graffiti removal needs.
What Spray Paint Means For You
For the most part, graffiti vandalism is made up of crude designs and dripping paint. This is an eyesore, but it can also be offensive. Hate speech or offensive designs sitting on your outside walls, can make one nasty first impression. Leaving these designs plastered along walls can deter potential business or alienate guests and it can mean being a target for even more unwanted art work. Street artists are competitive. This means that any “tag” or signature is an opened invitation for someone else to out-do their competition by laying an even bigger design over top. This might be fun and games for the ones doing the painting but for those cleaning it up, it can be feel impossible to get ahead. Instead of struggling to keep up with vandalism, think “smarter, not harder”. By calling a Gorilla, Selkirk residents can have expert care, top notch removal products and peace of mind.
Sitting spray paint looks awful but it can also do awful things to construction materials. The longer that paint is allowed to sit, the deeper it bakes into façades and the more difficult it becomes to remove. Everyone wants to save a buck here or there but avoiding professional property maintenance services is not the way to do it – and DIY is even worse! Harsh cleaners or pressure washing can blast away any protective coating that your outdoor space might have, along with physical damage to materials. Don’t bother with bleeding paint, missed overspray or costly damage, call a Gorilla instead!
Our Gorillas Swing Into Action
When it comes to graffiti, cleaning means specialized tools and treatment, along with years of experience – all of which our specialists have. Instead of using pressure washers or wire brushes to blast and scrape stains away, our experts have created a plan that addresses surfaces stains, ground-in discolouration and even overspray and bleeding. The first step to any proper graffiti removal is assessing the property in question. Weakened materials can break during the cleaning process, so it is important to pinpoint problem areas. Once all areas are secured and outfitted with FLOGUARD barriers to prevent cross-contamination of any nearby waterways, the real fun can begin! All staining is treated with eco-friendly cleaners to loosen surface dirt, which is then brushed away with bristle brushes. Once the easy layers are dealt with, our experts have a better idea of what is going on below the surface. Depending on the size, severity and scale of stains, a customized treatment plan is created to get your outdoor area looking brand new again.
