Street art plays a huge role in the daily operations of our Gorillas. Graffiti vandalism might be on the upswing in the Vancouver are but our maintenance experts are up to the challenge. Because structures around our community are constantly being vandalized, our team is always practicing new and innovative methods of removing spray paint. Local artists might want to express themselves but unauthorized painting drags down curb appeal for residential and commercial properties. Whether you are dealing with new paint or designs that have been left for years, our Gorillas can handle it all with our professional Vancouver graffiti removal.
What Graffiti Means For You
Despite being a criminal offence, illegal paint jobs are still a dime a dozen. Tags and unwanted designs can pop up on any property, at any time of day or night. These patterns are often, but not always offensive. Even if you happen to like the design, any paint should be removed as soon as possible. Despite being hard to the touch, the materials around your property, like concrete, have porous surfaces. Leaving any type of paint sitting against surfaces allows staining and discolouration to bake further down into the façade of your property. Being quick to remove graffiti not only makes the process easier, but can limit the amount of repeat offenders.
Street artists are competitive – to say the least! Because tags act as signatures for vandals, properties are often hit over and over again, with their walls acting like yearbooks. As paint piles up, your home or work space is a regular haunt for graffiti vandalism. By taking advantage of your local Gorillas, you can stop reoccurrences before they ever happen! Speedy removal practices let taggers know that their “work” is not tolerable. From time to time, we receive call outs for racial or hate graffiti, which (as a standard part of our service) we offer immediate removal free of charge. Having offensive markings or terms splashed across your property can alienate foot traffic.
Vancouver Graffiti Removal: Saying Goodbye to Spray Paint
It is easy to remove marks from the odd paint spill on a deck or a garage floor. There is nothing simpler than running to a home depot and grabbing a chemical stripper. These might be easy ways to strip paint but paint strippers in general do not protect your property. When you are ready to say Goodbye Graffiti, our Gorillas can help you with not only treatment, but graffiti prevention as well. There might not be any way to completely prevent your property from being a target, but our anti graffiti protective coating can make removal a breeze.
In order to get the best results for your property, our Gorillas use a multi step process to get rid of spray paint at every level. Using a specialized and environmentally friendly stain remover and cleaning solutions loosen surface paint, revealing any problem areas underneath. Once the easy stuff is pulled away, pressure washers treat any stains or shadowing left behind. If you are contending with discolourations or markings that just won’t get gone, our Gorillas moonlight as paint experts! By colour-matching the exterior of your structures, shadows can be a things of the past!
Here at Gorilla Property Services, we are proud to work with all the major property management companies, improvement associations, owners and city staff. This requires regular monitoring within the downtown core, and its surrounding neighbourhoods. As such, we are in constant search of graffiti. However, we want to maintain our first class service, even over such a large area. To do so, we’ve divided our Vancouver graffiti removal programs into four sections. These are Vancouver South, East, West and Downtown. The graffiti removal necessary for all of these areas simply can’t be taken lightly.
