There are many people who believe that graffiti is a beautiful work of art, however there are many who think it is another type of vandalism. When graffiti is found on your house, car, fence, or other personal property it can be very disheartening to see. While you may be tempted to go gather up all of your cleaning products that you have in your house, there are recommended ways to remove graffiti which do not include household cleaners as they can be quite harmful to your property.
The very first step you should take when removing graffiti is to find out what material you are removing the paint from. If you can find out what the person used to put this on your personal property that would be of great benefit as well. If it is on your fence, is it metal or wood, if it is on your house, what is your house made of, and the texture? These are the types of questions that you should ask yourself before attempting to remove this vandalism yourself.
One of the first graffiti removal products you can try is Graffiti Rid- GR007 . You can also attempt to pressure wash the graffiti off of your property. There are many different pressure washer types that you can rent, you should make sure that you have a wide top on the end of the pressure washer so as to not mark or indent your property. Some people have been fortunate to remove graffiti with water, if this does not work you can add a small amount of bleach to the pressure washer and try that. Test a small area first so that you can be sure there will not be any further damage to your property.
Another way to remove grafitti is to simply paint over it. If you have a fence or a house you should be able to paint over it without a problem and thus solving your problem with graffiti. The last thing you can attempt is chemicals. For the most part these have to be ordered online. These chemicals should be used in a well ventilated area to avoid inhalation of the chemicals. You might want to consider hiring a professional for this.
