Graffiti Removal: When Artwork Goes Negative

graffiti removal

Owning and managing a commercial property has its challenges. For one thing, keeping the property looking its best is much harder than it sounds. When factors out of your control take over, like graffiti and tagging, it can leave you feeling powerless and your property vulnerable. While graffiti can be seen as artistic expression, it usually has a negative effect on businesses, making immediate graffiti removal imperative.

Think about it: with foul language or unfavorable images on your exterior walls, how many people will turn away your business?

A Negative Impact

In the competitive market in the Washington, DC metropolitan area, curb appeal is vital. Graffiti can not only ruin your property’s curb appeal, but can also contribute to lost revenue, reduced customers and sales, and declining property value. That’s reason enough to remove it, but here’s another: studies show that when graffiti is removed promptly, vandals seem to move on to other areas. In other words, removing graffiti right after it happens tends to nip it in the bud. The quicker you take care of it, the better off your business will be.

Graffiti Removal

Unfortunately, graffiti can be extremely difficult to remove, especially if you’re inexperienced. The paint penetrates the pores of the surface, and depending on the surface material, it can even lodge itself deep in the crevices, posing and additional challenge to removal.

The best way to get rid of graffiti for good is through pressure washing combined with eco friendly cleaning solutions. But remember, graffiti is stubborn and needs a skilled professional to tackle it. Luckily, KEVCO is experienced in graffiti removal services and can restore the beauty of your building in no time.
