What To Consider When Hiring A Graffiti Removal Service
It cannot be stressed enough everyone has a different take on graffiti. Whether you consider it art or vandalism, graffiti must be removed at some point. A fresh coat of paint is not always the best solution, which will only conceal the graffiti. We can remove small-, medium-, and large-sized graffiti murals.
Before you tackle the next graffiti project, you need to consider the list of factors provided in the list below:
Surface Temperature – The integrity of spray paint is altered by temperatures. Some types of spray paint do not work well in temperatures below 32 degrees Fahrenheit. The ever-changing temperatures will take their tow on the different types of paints utilized in graffiti art.
It is crucial to remember that the wrong temperature could result in surface damage. Leave your graffiti removal projects for our experts.
Graffiti Paint – Vandals do not give much thought when vandalizing people’s properties with graffiti. The only thing on their minds is creating graffiti. If you approve of the graffiti, you may change your mind later on down the road. Once you reach this point, you must consider the type of paint utilized to create the graffiti pieces. Aerosol paints pose many difficulties when it comes to removal.
Surface Types – When most people think of graffiti, they think of rock walls. Yes, most graffiti artists prefer concrete walls because it is a great surface to work with. However, graffiti can be created on surfaces constructed from various materials. You can find graffiti art on glass, concrete, brick, aluminum, vinyl, and wood surfaces.
Longevity – Some types of paint have a service of up to 15 years. Oil-based paint is just one example. Acrylic can last up to 10 years in controlled environments. There is no guarantee any type of paint will last as long as the manufacturer’s quote. When you are ready to remove graffiti, you need to consider when it was created. It only makes sense that the older the graffiti, the higher level of removal difficulty.
Some graffiti paints are designed to penetrate surfaces that are porous in nature. Wood, stone, and brick are just three examples. It is unfortunate, but graffiti removal involving porous surfaces has the tendency to cause slight or significant damage. We can help you remove your graffiti without property damage.
Professional Graffiti Removal Techniques
If the graffiti has been around for quite some time, you can expect the removal to be more severe. However, we will take the necessary precautions to protect your property like it is our own. We combine pressurized water, a paint remover, or a commercial-grade solvent to tackle most graffiti removal projects.
Graffiti Glass Removal
Contrary to belief, graffiti is difficult to remove on all surfaces, including glass. Windex and a squeegee are not always enough to remove set-in aerosol paints utilized for graffiti. In fact, it is rarely enough to restore graffiti vandalized windows to their original state.
It is important to note, glass can sustain moderate damage from exposure to aerosol paints. This is not to mention, the damage caused by graffiti removal. Scouring, scrubbing, and scratching with coarse brushes are not recommended. Instead, we recommend pressure washing and a quality paint remover.
While most graffiti artists utilize aerosol paints, others turn to a process known as acid-etching. We utilize state-of-the-art technology to restore damaged surfaces to their original state.
