  2. SOME GRAFFITI REMOVAL TIPS TO KNOW • UNDERSTAND THAT THERE WILL BE A HIGHER CHANCE OF GETTING YOUR GRAFFITI REMOVED IF YOU ATTEND TO IT EARLY. PROMPT REMOVAL IS IMPORTANT NOT ONLY BECAUSE IT IS LESS LIKELY TO DAMAGE THE SURFACE, BUT ALSO BECAUSE LEAVING IT IN PLACE FOR LONG ENOUGH WOULD ATTRACT NEW MARKINGS TOO. • ALWAYS START WITH THE GENTLEST WAY OF REMOVING THE TAGS. SOMETIMES, YOU DO NOT KNOW HOW STUBBORN THE TAG IS, SO IT IS BETTER TO AVOID USING A STRONGER OPTION FIRST. IF YOU COULD HAVE IT REMOVED USING A GENTLE TECHNIQUE, YOU WILL NOT HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT DAMAGING THE SURFACE UNDERNEATH THE TAG. • ALWAYS OPT FOR NON-TOXIC CHEMICALS TO FOR GRAFFITI REMOVAL. IT IS ACTUALLY BETTER TO AVOID USING CHEMICALS WHATSOEVER, BUT IF YOU REALLY HAVE TO, THEN TAKE IMPORTANT SAFETY MEASURES FIRST. WEARING PROTECTIVE EYEWEAR AND GLOVES WILL ALWAYS HELP KEEP YOU SAFE. • BEFORE YOU TRY ANY REMOVAL METHOD, IT IS BETTER TO TRY IT ON A SMALLER AREA FIRST. THIS WAY, YOU WILL KNOW IF THE METHOD IS REALLY GOING TO WORK WITHOUT DAMAGING THE SURFACE UNDERNEATH THE MARKINGS.

  3. ANTI-GRAFFITI COATING TO AVOID WASTING MONEY ON GRAFFITI REMOVAL • SACRIFICIAL COATING • IT WORKS BY CREATING A THIN PROTECTIVE LAYER OVER THE MAIN SURFACE. YOU SIMPLY HAVE TO REMOVE THE PROTECTIVE COATING WHEN YOU WANT TO REMOVE SOME MARKINGS. YOU WILL HAVE TO COAT IT AGAIN. KEEP IN MIND THAT YOU WILL HAVE TO USE A PRESSURE WASHER TO TAKE OFF THAT PROTECTIVE COATING. IT IS BETTER TO HIRE A PROFESSIONAL WHO HAS COMMERCIAL-GRADE PRESSURE WASHERS. YOU MAY NOT ALWAYS NEED IT THOUGH CONSIDERING THE TYPE OF GRAFFITI YOU WANT REMOVED. YOU SHOULD CONSIDER THIS OPTION FOR BUILDING EXTERIORS, SOUND BARRIERS, TANKS, BRIDGES, AND OTHER SURFACES THAT HAVE GROUND-LEVEL ACCESS. • NON-SACRIFICIAL COATING • ALSO CALLED PERMANENT COATING, IT IS A RELATIVELY EXPENSIVE OPTION, BUT THE BEST THING IS THAT YOU NEED TO APPLY IT ONCE ONLY. THEY CREATE A HARD SURFACE MAKING SURE THAT THE SPRAY PAINT DOES NOT STICK TO IT. THIS WAY, YOU CAN REMOVE THE PAINT BY USING ANY PRODUCT DESIGNED FOR GRAFFITI REMOVAL. IN FACT, YOU CAN SOMETIMES HAVE THE MARKINGS REMOVED BY A SIMPLE WIPE. BE SURE TO ASK YOUR SERVICE PROVIDER ABOUT THE TYPE OF PERMANENT COATING THEY ARE GOING TO USE. A SOLVENT-BASED POLYURETHANE COATING USUALLY WORKS FINE.

  4. TOP BENEFITS OF USING A GRAFFITI REMOVAL SERVICE • WORKING WITH A PROFESSIONAL WILL HELP REMOVE THE GRAFFITI FROM YOUR WALLS AND GIVE A CLEANER LOOK TO THE WHOLE AREA. PROVIDED THAT YOU WORK WITH A SPECIALIST, YOU DO NOT HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT LOSING THE ORIGINAL LUSTER OF YOUR WALLS. • WORKING WITH A PROFESSIONAL WILL OFFER MAXIMUM PEACE OF MIND. YOU NEED TO BEAR IN MIND THAT DIFFERENT GRAFFITI REMOVAL METHODS ARE SUITABLE FOR SPECIFIC STRUCTURES AND SURFACES ONLY. HOWEVER, PROFESSIONAL COMPANIES HAVE THE EXPERIENCE TO HANDLE EVERYTHING IN A PROPER WAY. THEREFORE, YOU CAN TURN TO THEM WITH CONFIDENCE AND ASK THEM TO HELP YOU WITH GRAFFITI REMOVAL. THEY WILL DO IT FOR YOU IRRESPECTIVE OF WHAT TYPE OF SURFACE YOU HAVE. • WORKING WITH A PROFESSIONAL WILL HELP IMPROVE YOUR REPUTATION AND PORTRAY A POSITIVE IMAGE OF YOUR BUSINESS IN FRONT OF YOUR PROSPECTIVE CLIENTS. OF COURSE, YOU WILL HAVE TO SPEND SOME MONEY, BUT GETTING A CLEAN EXTERIOR WILL PAY YOU WITH INCREASED SALES.

  5. TOP BENEFITS OF USING A GRAFFITI REMOVAL SERVICE • WORKING WITH A SPECIALIST MEANS THAT YOU CAN HAVE ALL TYPES OF PAINTS REMOVED FROM YOUR WALLS. SOME ACID ETCHED MARKINGS ARE EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO GET RID OF, BUT PROFESSIONALS WILL COME WITH THE RIGHT EQUIPMENT AND KNOWLEDGE TO HELP CLEAN THE SURFACE WITHOUT CAUSING ANY DAMAGE. • WORKING WITH A SPECIALIST MAKES GREAT SENSE BECAUSE THEY CAN ALSO OFFER IMPORTANT PIECE OF ADVICE THAT WILL HELP KEEP YOUR WALLS CLEAN. AT THE SAME TIME, THEY WILL SUGGEST CERTAIN WAYS THAT YOU CAN USE TO PROTECT YOUR WALLS. FOR INSTANCE, THEY HELP YOU SELECT THE RIGHT TYPES OF PROTECTIVE COATINGS FOR YOUR WALLS THAT WILL ENSURE THAT YOU DO NOT HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT GRAFFITI REMOVAL. • WORKING WITH A TOP RATED COMPANY IS A GREAT CHOICE BECAUSE IT WILL SAVE A LOT OF YOUR TIME. WHEN YOU ARE RUNNING A BUSINESS, YOU NEED TO KEEP YOUR FOCUS RIGHT. YOU JUST CANNOT AFFORD TO WORRY ABOUT THINGS THAT ARE NOT DIRECTLY RELATED TO YOUR BUSINESS. THEREFORE, YOU CAN ASK A PROFESSIONAL TO COME AND DECIDE HOW TO GET RID OF THOSE UNSIGHTLY MARKINGS WHILE YOU CAN CONTINUE TO FOCUS ON YOUR CORE BUSINESS ACTIVITIES.

  6. HOW TO DEAL WITH GRAFFITI REMOVAL ON DIFFERENT SURFACES • GRAFFITI REMOVAL PROCESS ON METAL SURFACES: WHEN YOU HAVE GRAFFITI ON A METAL SURFACE, YOU CAN HAVE IT REMOVED IF YOU REACT QUICKLY. FOR STARTERS, YOU CAN UTILIZE SOME COMMON PAINT THINNERS. YOU MAY ALSO BENEFIT FROM USING A LIGHT PENETRATING OIL. SOME GRAFFITI REMOVAL PRODUCTS PROVE EFFECTIVE WHEN YOU REACT IN A TIMELY MANNER AND USE THEM AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. YOU MAY ALSO CONSIDER RUBBING IT WITH BRONZE OR STEEL WOOL – A LIGHT SANDPAPER MAY ALSO PROVE EFFECTIVE HERE. • GRAFFITI REMOVAL ON WOOD SURFACES: YOU WILL HAVE TO CHECK THE TYPE OF WOOD YOU HAVE BEFORE GOING ANY FURTHER WITH THE REMOVAL PROCESS. FOR INSTANCE, YOU MAY HAVE IT REMOVED BY WIPING IT USING MINERAL SPIRITS, BUT THE TECHNIQUE WORKS WHEN THE WOODEN SURFACE IS NOT WEATHERED. YOU SHOULD NEVER USE THIS TECHNIQUE IN CASE THE WOOD IS WEATHERED OR ELSE THE CHEMICALS WILL PENETRATE DEEP INTO THE WOOD AD DAMAGE IT FURTHER. • GRAFFITI REMOVAL ON PLASTIC SURFACES: USE PENETRATING OIL TO HELP GET RID OF THE GRAFFITI ON PLASTIC SURFACES. NEVER GO FOR PAINT THINNERS TO REMOVE GRAFFITI FROM A PLASTIC SURFACE BECAUSE IT CAN LEAD TO PERMANENT TACKINESS OR CLOUDING OF THE SURFACE.

  7. WHY HIRE A PROFESSIONAL FOR GRAFFITI REMOVAL • THEY KNOW WHAT TYPES OF CHEMICALS WILL SAFELY REMOVE THE GRAFFITI. THEY USUALLY UTILIZE CHEMICALS WHEN YOU WANT TO REMOVE SOME MARKINGS ON WOODEN SURFACES. WHEN THE WOOD IS NOT WEATHERED, YOU MAY CONSIDER USING MINERAL SPIRITS TO GET GOOD RESULTS. HOWEVER, ONLY PROFESSIONALS CAN HELP DETERMINE WHAT TYPES OF CHEMICALS WILL HELP PRODUCE THE BEST RESULTS. • THEY CAN TAKE ADVANTAGE OF PRESSURE WASHING TO GET RID OF GRAFFITI FROM DIFFERENT SURFACES. A PRESSURE WASHER CAN PRODUCE A HIGH-PRESSURED STREAM OF WATER – THE PRESSURE CAN BE UPWARD OF 3000PSI. THE STREAM IS USUALLY ENOUGH TO CLEAR ETCHINGS AND MARKINGS FROM MOST SURFACES. SOME PEOPLE THINK THEY CAN USE A COMPACT PRESSURE WASHER TO REMOVE THE GRAFFITI, BUT THE OPTION DOES NOT ALWAYS WORK. THE REASON IS THAT THESE COMPACT MACHINES ARE NOT THAT POWERFUL AND MAY ONLY PRODUCE A STREAM OF 700PSI, WHICH MAY NOT BE ENOUGH FOR CERTAIN TASKS. PROFESSIONAL GRAFFITI REMOVAL COMPANIES HAVE EXPERTS WHO CAN HANDLE POWERFUL PRESSURE WASHERS WHILE FOLLOWING ALL SAFETY GUIDELINES. THEY ALSO ENSURE THAT THEY USE THE MOST APPROPRIATE NOZZLE FOR THE TASK BECAUSE USING A WRONG ONE COULD CAUSE MORE DAMAGE. • THEY CAN MAKE USE OF BLASTING TECHNIQUES TO HELP GET RID OF THOSE ANNOYING MARKS. SANDBLASTING IS USUALLY USED ON MOST SURFACES, BUT YOU SHOULD ENSURE THAT YOU HIRE AN EXPERT TO HANDLE THE PROCESS. WHEN USED INCORRECTLY, SANDBLASTING CAN LEAVE PORES IN THE STRUCTURE AND THIS WILL COMPROMISE INTEGRITY AND DURABILITY OF THE WHOLE STRUCTURE. MOREOVER, YOU NEED TO HIRE A PRO BECAUSE ONLY THEY KNOW HOW TO MOVE THE TIP IN A WAY THAT IT BLENDS THE SURFACE PERFECTLY.

  8. HOW PROFESSIONALS CAN HELP WITH GRAFFITI REMOVAL • DEPENDING ON THE NATURE OF THE GRAFFITI AND THE UNDERLYING SURFACE, YOU MAY CONSIDER TRYING DIFFERENT WAYS TO REMOVE IT EFFECTIVELY. HOWEVER, IT IS BETTER TO LET A SPECIALIST TAKE CARE OF EVERYTHING BECAUSE THEY HAVE THE EXPERIENCE AND KNOW HOW TO PROCEED IN A SAFE AND SECURE WAY. THE BEST THING IS THAT GRAFFITI REMOVAL COMPANIES CAN USE COMMERCIAL GRADE EQUIPMENT FOR PROPER REMOVAL. FOR INSTANCE, THEY CAN MAKE USE OF PRESSURE AND POWER WASHING TO DELIVER EXCEPTIONAL RESULTS. • MANY PEOPLE THINK THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BOTH THESE MACHINES, BUT THEY MAY BE USED FOR DIFFERENT TASKS. PRESSURE WASHING IS A TECHNIQUE USED TO REMOVE MOULD, DIRT, MILDEW, AND OTHER HAZARDOUS MATERIALS. THE MACHINE USED FOR IT PRODUCES A STREAM OF WATER AT A VERY HIGH PRESSURE. A POWER WASHER, ON THE OTHER HAND, USES THE SAME MECHANISM TO PRODUCE HIGH-PRESSURE STREAM OF WATER, BUT THE ONLY DIFFERENCE IS THAT IT USES HOT WATER, WHICH MAKES IT A LOT MORE SUITABLE FOR GRAFFITI REMOVAL. • IT IS NEVER EASY TO OPERATE THESE COMMERCIAL-GRADE MACHINES AND THAT IS THE REASON WHY YOU SHOULD NEVER TRY TO HANDLE THEM YOURSELF AND ALWAYS HIRE A PROFESSIONAL FOR THE TASK. ANOTHER REASON TO HIRE A PROFESSIONAL IS THAT THEY DO NOT JUST REMOVE THE GRAFFITI BUT THEY ALSO TAKE SPECIAL MEASURES TO PREVENT YOUR OFFICE BUILDING FROM FUTURE VANDALISM. FOR INSTANCE, TOP SERVICE PROVIDERS CAN USE ANTI-GRAFFITI COATING AFTER REMOVING THE MARKINGS. YOU CAN CHOOSE FROM DIFFERENT OPTIONS HERE. SOME COMPANIES WOULD HELP YOU WITH SACRIFICIAL ANTI-GRAFFITI COATING, WHILE OTHERS MAY HELP YOU WITH PERMANENT COATINGS.

  9. LEARN TO USE A PRESSURE WASHER FOR GRAFFITI REMOVAL • TAKE YOUR TIME AND SELECT THE RIGHT PRESSURE WASHER FIRST. FAILING TO SELECT A PRESSURE WASHER THAT IS RIGHT FOR THE TASK CAN CAUSE ALL SORTS OF PROBLEMS. YOU CAN CHECK SOME PRESSURE WASHER BUYING GUIDES ONLINE TO SELECT THE RIGHT ONE FOR YOUR NEEDS. • EDUCATE YOURSELF ABOUT DIFFERENT TYPES OF ATTACHMENTS USED WITH A PRESSURE WASHER. ENSURE THAT YOUR PRESSURE WASHER COMES EQUIPPED WITH A TURBO NOZZLE AND ROTATING SURFACE CLEANER. YOU WILL REQUIRE THESE ATTACHMENTS FOR PROPER CLEANING. • ENSURE THAT YOU HAVE WORN THE RIGHT GEAR FOR EFFECTIVE CLEANING. USING PRESSURE WASHERS WITHOUT PAYING ATTENTION TO YOUR SAFETY CAN CAUSE SERIOUS PROBLEMS. YOU MAY INJURE YOURSELF IN THE PROCESS, WHICH IS ONE OF MANY REASONS WHY MOST PEOPLE CONSIDER HIRING A SPECIALIST.

  10. LEARN TO USE A PRESSURE WASHER FOR GRAFFITI REMOVAL • LEARN TO USE THE RIGHT TECHNIQUE. WHEN USING A SPRAY NOZZLE, YOU HAVE TO KEEP IT PERPENDICULAR TO THE SURFACE. YOU SHOULD ALSO ENSURE THAT YOU USE A STEADY MOTION BECAUSE IT PREVENTS INCONSISTENT PRESSURE. NOT BEING ABLE TO MAINTAIN A STEADY MOTION WOULD LEAD TO ZEBRA STRIPPING, WHICH CAN DAMAGE THE SURFACE UNDERNEATH THE GRAFFITI. THEREFORE, IT IS BETTER TO AVOID USING A PRESSURE WASHER IF YOU NOT SURE ABOUT USING IT CORRECTLY. • LEARN TO USE CLEANING AGENTS IN THE RIGHT WAY. WHETHER YOU WANT A PRESSURE WASHER FOR GRAFFITI REMOVAL OR YOU NEED IT FOR ANOTHER CLEANING TASKS, YOU SHOULD LEARN HOW TO SELECT AND USE A CLEANING AGENT PROPERLY. YOU CAN USE DIFFERENT TYPES OF CHEMICALS BUT NOT ALL OF THEM ARE SUITABLE FOR GRAFFITI REMOVAL. SOME MAY EVEN BE DANGEROUS FOR YOUR HEALTH.

  11. GRAFFITI REMOVAL BASED ON DIFFERENT TYPES OF SURFACES • YOU CAN USE THE SAME COLOR PAINT IF THE GRAFFITI IS ON A PAINTED SURFACE. THE ONLY ISSUE IS THAT YOU WILL HAVE TO MATCH THE PAINT. YOU CAN HANDLE THE ISSUE BETTER IF YOU HAVE SAVED SOME PAINT YOU APPLIED ORIGINALLY. • YOU CAN USE A GOOD QUALITY GRAFFITI REMOVER WHEN YOU HAVE THE MARKINGS ON METAL, GLASS, OR OTHER NON-POROUS SURFACES. YOU CAN FIND THESE PAINTS AT GOOD HARDWARE STORES. SOME PEOPLE MAY USE A RAZOR BLADE TO REMOVE SMALL MARKINGS ON A NON-POROUS SURFACE, BUT IT CAN BE DANGEROUS, ESPECIALLY IF YOU DO NOT KNOW THE RIGHT TECHNIQUE. • GETTING RID OF GRAFFITI FROM THE SIDEWALK WILL BE A TIRESOME PROCESS. YOU NEED TO TAKE STEPS TO PREVENT THE MARKINGS IN THE FIRST PLACE BECAUSE YOU WILL HAVE TO HIRE A PRO TO DEAL WITH THE PROCESS. THE PROFESSIONALS WILL FIRST APPLY SOME SORT OF GRAFFITI REMOVER AND THEN PROCEED WITH SODA BLASTING OR PRESSURE WASHING TO GET SATISFACTORY RESULTS.

  12. GRAFFITI REMOVAL BASED ON DIFFERENT TYPES OF SURFACES • HAVING TAGS REMOVED FROM GLASS CAN BE QUITE TRICKY; IN FACT, THINGS BECOME SERIOUS WHEN THE MARKINGS ARE ACID ETCHED IN YOUR EXTERIOR. IT IS BETTER TO ASK A PROFESSIONAL ABOUT WAYS TO REMOVE THE MARKINGS FROM YOUR STOREFRONT. • YOU MAY NOT GET GOOD RESULTS FROM CONVENTIONAL GRAFFITI REMOVAL PROCESS WHEN YOU HAVE THE MARKINGS ON RAW MASONRY. UNPAINTED POROUS SURFACES ARE THE TARGETS FOR TAGGERS BECAUSE THEY ARE HARDER TO GET RID OF. YOU CAN TRY CERTAIN WAYS BUT YOU MAY HAVE TO HIRE A PROFESSIONAL TO HANDLE THE TASK. THE REASON IS THAT THESE TYPES OF MARKINGS RESPOND BETTER TO PRESSURE WASHING OR SODA BLASTING.
