Graffiti is a class of street art found mostly on surfaces such as public transport and building walls. Many types of graffiti are usually accomplished when street artists use spray paint, often enamel or permanent marker. Although professionally done urban art is creatively great, others can be an eyesore that is considered vandalism and widespread community concern. Here is what you need to know about graffiti removal;
As above-mentioned, graffiti art is achieved from a combination of permanent markers, aerosol spray paints, and inks that artists use to paint on a wide range of surfaces and materials, including vinyl, concrete, brick, wood, etc.
Additionally, most graffiti removers use solvents such as mineral spirits and paint thinners that can produce harmful odors. Suppose the removal job is indoors or in an area that is not adequately ventilated. In that case, the fumes can be dangerous to your health and result in symptoms such as respiratory problems, watery eyes, and headaches.
Graffiti Removal Equipment
Graffiti artists will look for any surface to leave their mark on buildings and vehicles, and furniture. Such surfaces can prove challenging to clean.
This also includes porous surfaces, such as brick, concrete, or stone, where graffiti paint has absorbed deep into the surface, and a cleaning cloth an abrasive scouring pad or brush won’t do the job.
Before attempting DIY graffiti removal and do more harm than good, consider the services of a reputable graffiti removal company that will clean and even apply an anti-graffiti coating to prevent such vandalism in the future.
