The first step to wash off graffiti is pressure washing the wall. No matter if your surface is made of stucco, brick, vinyl, or wood, it’s possible to clean it without running the risk of damaging it. Findecor’s team of professional painters use a pressure washing machine that has a pressure of up to 3500 psi, and this power can be moderated if used on less rigid surfaces like wood for instance.
The second step is applying a cleaning product. Nowadays, one can easily find on the market eco-friendly and biodegradable products that are efficient to get rid of graffiti. Chemical products should only be used with great moderation so that we are respectful to the environment and we take care of our citizens’ health.
Depending on the kind of graffiti, it could be sufficient to cover it up with one or two paint coats without the previous use of a cleaning product. When unsure, please ask an expert for his advice.
The third step is repainting the surface, after rinsing it, to make the color even. If your building is frequently the target for undesirable graffiti, we always suggest the use of a washable and durable paint such as the Aura paint from Benjamin Moore. As a consequence, you will be able to wash and scrub your new paint more easily, and without fear that it will peel or loose color.
