Tips Removal Graffiti

Ways to Graffiti Removal:

Painting Over
Painting over is taken to be one of the cheapest and simplest ways of getting rid of graffiti. All one has to do is choose a shade that will cover the graffiti well enough. Sometimes, the graffiti tends to bleed and make its way out over the paint. Ensure that this does not happen and only then choose a shade. Before starting out with the process though, remove as much of the previous graffiti as you can. This method works best on smooth surfaces that do not have many crevices.

Pressure Washing
This method works best on surfaces like wood and brick walls. In fact, it is one of the best ways to remove paint from brick. As the name suggests, the pressure of the water dispels the graffiti and clears the surface. For best results, the nozzle should be wide and the washer should have low pressure so that it covers a wider area and does not damage the surface with its force.

Chemical Solvents
One has to be extremely careful when one uses chemicals. If not used well, they can corrode the surface and damage it further. Here are certain factors that you need to consider for different surfaces:

Plastic Surface
Use a light penetrating oil like citrus oil for effective removal of graffiti. Another method is that of rubbing over the paint with extra fine steel wool.

Metal Surface
Paint thinners are seen to work effectively well on this surface. Try rubbing a small section of the surface with the paint thinner and check for results. Other than this, penetrating oil is also known to be a good source.

Wood Surface
Usage of mineral spirits over wood is said to bring about best results. For this to work out well, one has to know how to remove paint from wood and ensure that the wood is not old and crumbling. If it is, then the graffiti will be soaked further into the wood.

Other Surfaces
Surfaces made from aluminum as well as fiberglass can be cleaned with a little amount of paint and chemical remover. Make absolutely sure to use it sparingly and to test an area before you use it with reckless abandon.

Other Methods
For glass surfaces, using a razor and scrapping off the graffiti is considered a great idea. Adhesive graffiti is sticky and messy and can get to be very difficult to remove. Scrape off as much of the adhesive as you can, and then use acetone to gently wipe over the surface. Always test a small area before you get this done. Sandblasting is another method that can be employed for removing paints and more tough stains. Yet, it has to be noted that it cannot be used on delicate surfaces or it might end up damaging the surface.

These were some of the graffiti removal tips that you can look into. Remember to check and test the surface before starting out on the cleaning process. That way the surface will still be around to greet you when you’re done cleaning it.
