Many call it art, but for those businesses who repeatedly find their walls daubed in graffiti it is anything but artistic. This causes a major dilemma for city centre businesses. Do they leave it in place knowing it is an eyesore or clean it off knowing full well it will soon be replaced by someone else with a penchant for wielding a spray can? If you have the latter way of thinking you will probably be wondering what is the best way of removing graffiti from your painted walls.

You could of course tackle it yourself with a scrubbing brush but this is both time consuming and very hard work. Scrubbing away with detergents will eventually remove the graffiti, but will more than likely also remove the paint. There will invariably be residue left behind as well so instead of a piece of graffiti there will be a large red smear in its place.

If you would prefer to hire a specialist cleaning services company rather than tackle the graffiti removal yourself, there are fortunately many such cleaning companies within Dublin and surrounding towns. Many of these cleaning contractors have specialist equipment to help remove graffiti without damaging the underlying surface or paintwork.
Top end cleaning contractors will more than likely use high pressure cleaning equipment that consist of a combination of non hazardous graffiti remover and warm water. This high pressure blasting will remove graffiti quickly and very efficiently from surfaces that are both porous and non-porous.

When engaging a contract cleaning company to remove your graffiti ask them if they also offer a protection surface. This where protective coating is applied using either a spray or a brush to protect your walls against further attacks. This coating is non hazardous and, as it allow the substrate to breathe, your paint shouldn’t flake off, which can be as unsightly as graffiti in its own way.

Finding cleaning services in the city which offer graffiti removal isn’t difficult. In fact, if you were to search for the term “graffiti cleaning Dublin” you will be surprised at how many results you get. You probably already have a contract cleaning company engaged to keep your business premises neat and tidy so it may well be worth your while asking them first if graffiti removal is something they offer.

Graffiti has long been the blight of city centre businesses but thanks to these cleaning services it is definitely something that cxan bnow be tackled, without having to pay considerable fees. Not so long ago even contract cleaners could be seen using the old scrubbing brush method but new technology & cleaning methods have taken over and the high pressure equipment, combined with the protective coating, means that Dublin businesses are no longer dreading what sight will greet them every morning.
