Graffiti is unfortunately a problem within many built-up areas within the UK, often in key areas for businesses. Graffiti can be unsightly, and when left untreated can damage your company reputation by creating an unsafe feeling in the eyes of visitors.
This means graffiti removal is an important part of the maintenance process for your premises. Having graffiti removed will create the right impression for your business and help to improve your appeal to customers. If your premises have been targeted by graffiti vandalism, here are some tips to protect your property and business, and prevent further damage:
Act quickly – the longer graffiti is left on a surface, the harder it will be to clean off. Additionally, removing graffiti quickly will cut the chances of further vandalism occurring – graffiti vandals will target areas already covered in graffiti.
Utilise an effective and high-quality graffiti removal service – using the wrong equipment and process may also create ongoing issues with the building, such as damp and premature crumbling, or even structural failure. Our graffiti removal experts will be able to analyse the surface and the graffiti substance used, to determine the best procedure for removal. We are highly experienced in graffiti removal and will be able to restore a building without causing any structural damage or health and safety issues.
Prevention tactics –
- Use an anti-graffiti protective coating on your premises.
- Install security lights and CCTV to deter vandals.
- Plant vegetation in front of wall or commission a mural to deter vandals. If a wall is obstructed or already displays art, it will become less of a target.
