Graffiti is a very common problem in big cities and can have a serious impact on your business. As a business owner, graffiti can be a real headache for you.
While some graffiti can be attractive to look at, the vast majority is definitely not. Not only does it look ugly but your business can lose money as a result. Bad language, offensive images or gang related markings are some of the more common types of graffiti.
Some of these gang related markings have some real criminal intent behind them.
The main disadvantages of graffiti are that it:
- Contributes to reduction in retail sales and a loss in revenue.
- Often lowers property values.
- Discourages customers from patronizing your business.
- People feel less safe where graffiti is on display.
- Encourages vandalism.
- Creates a fearful atmosphere.
Studies show that graffiti attracts even more graffiti. This will make the problem even worse. Rapid removal has been proven to be the most effective method of prevention. If you remove the graffiti within the first 24 hours, the likelihood of it returning is almost zero.

MELBOURNE’S GRAFFITI REMOVAL EXPERTS
The presence of graffiti on your business can affect the company image that you are wanting to portray. It also creates a bad impression in the minds of your customers and also the neighbourhood. Quick removal of the graffiti removes that problem and also sends a message to taggers. It tells them that their vandalism won’t be on display for very long.
People without any experience in graffiti removal are strongly advised not to try to remove the graffiti themselves as they can damage the surface, themselves or others in the nearby vicinity. Graffiti can be very difficult to remove and, depending on the surface will often need very specific tools and chemicals to remove it. Generally, the longer graffiti has been left on a surface, the harder it is to remove.
The removal of graffiti is a very specialised skill and does need professional expertise. The use of the wrong tools or the chemicals can result in permanent damage to the surface and give very poor results.
At Off Your Wall, we will send a professional to your premises to assess the problem and give you his recommendations. Once you make the decision to go ahead, our professional will test the graffiti to establish the most appropriate tools and chemicals for the job and will then proceed to remove the graffiti.
This is usually done using a variety of methods such as pressure washing, sand blasting and various chemical cleaners. These will clean the affected surface area but leave the original surface untouched. In some situations where paint is required to finish the job, our professionals will paint over any affected areas with a matching colour.
We remove graffiti from a diverse range of surfaces such as:
- Painted areas
- And much more …
At your request we can apply an anti-graffiti barrier to any exposed surfaces on your property. This protective coating keeps all graffiti marks and stains on the surface. The advantage with this is that it allows the graffiti to be removed more easily using traditional surface cleaners.
As a business owner, you may not want to have to pay a contractor every time some graffiti happens. If this is the case, then we can put you onto a graffiti removal maintenance plan. That way, if any vandalism/graffiti should happen, give us a call and we’ll fix it at no extra charge.
