Cleaning Graffiti on Facades.
Graffiti is one of the most common things that we find on facades, windows, car parks… That is why it is important that we take into account that the sooner we try to clean up graffiti, the easier it will be to remove it.
Why Start Doing Graffiti Cleanup?
If you have a company, premises, or building of any kind, you may have already come across some graffiti on the façade. It is common, it is part of our day-to-day and, therefore; we want to help you solve the problem.
The façade is the letter of introduction, the first image that people receive when they pass through your door; If you take care of that window correctly you will get a very good first image. That is why cleaning your facade is so important.
How To Clean Graffiti?
Another factor that we have to take into account to carry out a complete and successful removal of graffiti is the material on which it has been done. Depending on the material, special professional cleaning products or others should be used.
Likewise, the objective that professional cleaning companies have, in addition to cleaning painted walls, is to try to keep the surface in good condition without damaging it.
Graffiti removal methods
Within the cleaning of graffiti we can find several methods or functional systems:
Paint the wall
This is the cheapest method. It is simply covered with paint over the graffiti on the wall. Plus you don’t run the risk of damaging the surface. This system is recommended for smooth surfaces.
In the market, we can find a wide variety of paint chemical remover products. It is not recommended to use it on large surfaces since the result it leaves is not very aesthetic. The first test is in a small area to make sure you know the result that will be on the rest of the surface.
Not to be used in painted areas. For example, stone or granite.
This is the most widely used system. We proceed to wash with a pressure machine that has mixed water with solvent. The mixture is 80%/20% to reduce the abrasive effect. It is allowed to rest for a while on the surface and thus the process is repeated.
To avoid having to repeat the cleaning of graffiti, preventive methods must be used. We can find the temporary and permanent types.
- Temporary: These are layers that are applied when cleaning is done. Once finished, it is applied again.
- Permanent: this type of method does not require an application at the end of the cleaning, unlike the previous one.
