Yorkdale might be a small village inside the Greater Toronto Area but that does not stop its residents from getting their fill of both local and fine art. With more than a dozen galleries within its border, there is no shortage of avenues to show and share art – but that does not stop graffiti artists. Unwanted murals are popping up full force, but our Gorillas are quick to keep streets clean with our Yorkdale graffiti removal.
What Spreads Graffiti
As graffiti spreads throughout the Toronto area, it is not uncommon to wonder why. There are abstract answers as to what encourages graffiti but at the end of the day, it is all about competition. Tags act as minor signatures for graffiti artists and where there is one, there will be more! Everyone wants to leave their mark, but it often falls on property owners to clean up these uninvited signatures. The longer that paint is allowed to sit on your property, the more likely it is that your space will get hit again. In addition to leaving the door opened for more paint, leaving paint to sit in the sun allows discolouration to bake further into the façade of your property. The further in that paint penetrates, the harder it is to remove.
Getting Results For Your Yorkdale Graffiti Removal
Taking a crack at graffiti, whether it is a simple tag, or full-sized mural can be tough. There are plenty of theories as to what can help strip that paint away but not all of them are effective – or safe! Certain paint removal methods can loosen surface stains, and allow colouring to drip down and bleed across new surfaces. Unprofessional removal services can actually spread stains and make them worse. When you call a Gorilla for your Yorkdale graffiti removal, you are getting safe results in a contained environment. Our Gorillas treat stains layer by layer to ensure complete removal. By using Gorilla Foam cleansers, brushes, and even pressure washers, stains don’t stand a change against our Yorkdale graffiti removal.
