Money on Graffiti Removal
raffiti refers to unsightly markings that can spoil the look of your
building or storefront. Statistics show that graffiti removal costs
millions of dollars each year. Therefore, you should take necessary
steps to lower the chances of getting those tags etched on your building. While
you can do little to lower the risk of vandalism, you can certainly take steps to
ensure that graffiti removal does not cost you top dollar. One way to handle the
issue is to go for anti-graffiti coatings.
By using anti-graffiti coatings, you will be able to have a protective layer on
your building. It means that the coatings on your building will not go deep,
which will make it easier to remove it using conventional removal methods. For
instance, you will be able to get rid of most types of markings using a good
quality graffiti removal if you have installed anti-graffiti coating first.
The benefits of anti-graffiti coatings are many, but you need to ensure that you
work with a professional service provider. Experienced contractors are likely to
offer multiple options for you to choose from, so you will be in a better
position to decide what suits your needs and budget. Top rated companies will
offer two main options – sacrificial coating and non-sacrificial coating.
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.
It is clear that protective coating will simplify the task of graffiti removal, but
you need to hire a professional for the task and ensure that they use a single-
component system – it should preferably be a water-based system to deliver
maximum results. The system ensures that the coating dries quickly and is
extremely easy to use. So, be sure to take your time and perform some research
in advance to ensure that your contractor is capable of offering the type of
solution you require.
