The main benefit of living in the city is that everything is close, no matter what or who you may need. If you need to go to the store, there is likely a grocery store within 10 minutes from your door. Unfortunately, the city also has many downfalls, which to some are the reason they avoid it. If living in the city was anything close to what people made it out to be, nobody would live there. One of the problems with living in a city is vandalism; more specifically: graffiti.
Some people view graffiti as art, while others view it as bored teens defacing property. Regardless, the owner of the property is never pleased to find it spray painted on the side of their wall. In some cases the graffiti removal job can be so large that doing it by hand would be more than a hassle: it would be a pain…literally. So if you fall into this category you may be wondering how to remove graffiti from your building.
Removing Graffiti – Method 1
Removing graffiti is generally not as simple as grabbing a hose and washcloth and washing it off like it’s a water soluble marker on a whiteboard. Spray paint is meant to be permanent, but permanent is a loose term, especially in the case of graffiti. In order to remove graffiti you need to have some form of power. The first way, and often the most common, is to buy yourself some graffiti remover, which eats away at the paint, making it easier to wash off. Using this method can be tiresome and takes a long time. Most of the time when someone decides to spray your wall, they are not looking to spray this small section of it. No; they want the whole thing! If you’re like me, method one is not the best way to remove graffiti.
Graffiti Removal Services – Method 2
Removing spray paint can be as easy as washing it away. “But I thought scrubbing was not the best way?” It isn’t. Today we are fortunate enough to have graffiti removal services from businesses that revolve around power washing and pressure washing. Power washing the graffiti is the best way to remove the graffiti, and the best way to clean concrete. Not to mention it’s more environmentally friendly than cleaning chemicals. Removing graffiti from concrete with a pressure washer is extremely fast when compared to your alternatives, but comes with its own risks. Pressure washing can cause you injuries if used improperly, which is why it’s best left to the professionals. After all, they do it for a living!
Whether you are a business owner, resident, or property manager, if you live in a city, you will most likely have to deal with this unfortunate circumstance at some point in your life. Removing graffiti can be a tedious chore, or a minor inconvenience, depending on your method of removal.
