Graffiti is a serious issue in towns, cities and urban areas across the country. From small ‘tags’ to large scale murals, graffiti can have a serious impact on the aesthetics of a property. If it is not removed, graffiti can make the façade of a building appear uncared-for and the property itself look like it is in need of maintenance.
Our graffiti removal services make it easy for property owners and managers to clean the doors, walls and other external surfaces of their buildings. Quick and efficient, our cleaning services can remove graffiti and restore a wide variety of construction materials to their former glory.
Removing Graffiti from Domestic and Commercial Buildings
The paint and pens used to create graffiti are often chosen for their permanence. This can make graffiti very difficult to remove, especially for inexperienced contractors. In order to achieve good results and protect a building from future attacks, operatives need to use specialist tools and equipment and carry out the work thoroughly.
The key to effectively erasing graffiti and restoring the aesthetic appearance of a property is timing. The sooner graffiti is removed from the surface of a building, the better the result will be. This is because, over time, the solvents in the ink or paint will soak into the exterior of a property. The deeper these solvents are absorbed by the brick, stone, cladding or other materials, the harder they are to remove. Graffiti should always be cleaned off as soon as it is spotted. This ensures good results and a clean, tidy façade.
Specialist products make graffiti removal from cladding and other materials easier and more efficient. Using the correct chemicals and processes also ensures a good result from the clean as well as long lasting protection for the building. Spectrum operatives have access to a range of unique, patented tools that have been specially designed to effectively clean all types of external surfaces.
Our operatives use systems like DOFF steam cleaning to thoroughly remove graffiti from brick, stone, cladding and other materials. Spectrum cleaning teams also have extensive expertise in access, ensuring they are able to reach all areas of a building.
When paint or ink has soaked into the surface of a building, a solvent is often needed in order to remove it. Different paints and different surfaces require different solvents. Knowing exactly which chemicals to use helps our operatives to achieve outstanding results and protects the substrate from accidental damage. This expertise allows Spectrum to remove all types of graffiti from commercial and residential buildings.
