Have you recently reported an attack of vandalism on your business that has left you reeling? Your business’s appearance matters, and so does graffiti removal. When vandals strike, more often follow to add to it, so there are benefits to acting fast.
But before you do, make sure that you are choosing a reliable, professional company or safe and effective products. Some kinds of graffiti are more troublesome than others to remove, so you’ll need someone with experience in order to do the job right. Here are the top 3 things to look for when hiring a graffiti removal service.
1. Years in Business
Longevity is the first point to consider. If the company has been in business for over two decades or more, they should know how to do it all–how to remove graffiti from brick, metal, etc., while protecting the surface underneath.
Having all that experience benefits the customer by saving them time and money, and passing on their wealth of knowledge from years of service in the industry. It also means that when that company is providing graffiti removal products for your use, you know you can trust them.
It’s important to ask what products will be used before booking a company. When possible, try to use environmentally friendly graffiti removal products that are biodegradable, and made in Canada.
This will help you avoid ones that have phosphates, chlorinated hydrocarbons, and others that cause health and/or disposal problems.
3. Is the Graffiti Removal Service Local?
The best graffiti removal company is a local company that understands your area, and how you do business.
Plus, there are so many benefits to choosing a local company! You are supporting a business that will, in turn, support you with their services, and are more likely to give back to the community, which is a win-win.
Tips for Graffiti Prevention
To avoid future incidents, there are ways to protect your business. Having graffiti removed in 48 hours or less often discourages vandals from returning. It sends a message that the owner cares and won’t stand for that kind of destruction of property.
Install security cameras or motion sensor lighting in areas that have been vandalized. If the area is easily accessible to foot traffic, consider erecting a fence. You can also eliminate the temptation of bare surfaces to write on by planting clinging vegetation or using thorny plants, hedges, and even plastic ivy as a deterrent.
Ready to Get Your Graffiti Removed?
Graffiti removal can be time-consuming and difficult, so it’s best to hire a professional company that knows how to remove graffiti or can provide you with the right tools and chemicals to get the job done. By choosing a company that offers eco-friendly and biodegradable products, you can protect your health and the environment.
