Graffiti- the Newspaper of Gangs!

Graffiti offends viewers and can even demoralise your students.

Often graffiti is used to advertise drugs, violence and gang activities.

Left unchecked, and if not removed quickly, graffiti is likely to spread like wildfire.

That's why you want that graffiti removed before it has a chance to taint the young and easily-influenced minds of students and children.

...and before it starts attracting more spray-can hooligans!

Graffiti Removal Gone Wrong!

Removing graffiti is one thing, doing so safely without damaging the structure of a building can be a challenge. Unfortunately, this industry is not regulated so there are some unscrupulous characters doing very average work in an unsafe manner.

Just think of the repercussions that will no doubt result from you choosing an inexperienced company to help you solve your graffiti problem. The Graffiti Eaters often get called in after the fact to fix the problems created by others a very costly mistake.

Did you know? When brick and concrete walls are damaged by incorrect chemical selection, use and incorrect pressure cleaning techniques, the only way to fix the wall is to knock out the bricks and replace them?

Consider the following real case example...

Here at The Graffiti Eaters: We never attempt to fix a problem unless we first test a patch of the affected area to determine what solution and procedure is necessary to fix it.

We do that because when graffiti is sprayed onto masonry walls like brick, concrete, sandstone and granite it penetrates and soaks deep into the surface, like ink into chalk!

If graffiti is incorrectly removed, then you may also have ongoing issues with salt deposits, rising damp and premature brick crumbling, and in the worst circumstances, structural failure.

Every surface needs a different procedure and approach.

 

After all, you want JUST the graffiti removed and nothing else, right?

That's what we do here at The Graffiti Eaters. You give us a call, we remove the graffiti, problem solved!

We can take care of your graffiti problems anywhere across Australia. Just one number to call 1300 305 307. We have the manpower, experience and technology to remove your graffiti in 24 hours or less, anywhere in Australia.

When your brand is on the line, you can't take any chances

Regardless of the surface you have had defaced by graffiti, we can remove it!

Graffiti comes in many different forms. It can be paint designed for decorative colour, heat resistant engine enamel or cold gel corrosion paint. Then there is methylated spirit or solvent based texta pen.

There are literally hundreds of different combinations that react and behave differently on the thousands of different types of surfaces used today in construction. The training and experience of the technician working on your building is vital in ensuring you get the best outcome in terms of great results at the most cost effective rate.

Many maintenance facility companies, general brick cleaners and franchise groups claiming to be experts at everything dabble in graffiti removal. There are actually only a handful of companies in Australia that have the experience to get results and not cause underlying surface damage.

Every one of The Graffiti Eater Surface Restoration Technician is qualified via our University of Graffitiology training program that takes 12 months to complete.

Do you want to learn more?

Here we explain some of the intricacies in removal graffiti from different surfaces.

Graffiti Removal from Masonry Surfaces (brickwork, concrete, bluestone)

Masonry surfaces are very porous and suck in graffiti like a sponge. The trick to removing it is using a system that softens the graffiti and draws it to the surface, then allowing it to be cleanly removed from the surface. It's just one of the many tricks that we have mastered over the years we know what works and what doesn't, so we won't be experimenting when your brand is on the line!

By the way, using the wrong type of chemical and technique can permanently soak graffiti into a surface causing ugly shadows. Sand or Garnet blasting should never be used on masonry surfaces.

The age of the graffiti and its thickness all play a part in how easily it is removed. The fresher the graffiti is, the easier it is to remove, so get on to it quickly. The type of mortar used in the construction of the wall and the depth of the mortar joint effect the time and cost of removal.

You should expect a high degree of success in removing graffiti from masonry surfaces.

Graffiti Removal from School Wall

Unfortunately all too often we are called in by a new client after they have been disappointed with the work of another contractor.

Our Surface Restoration Technician attended a site to find severe scarring on tilt slab concrete. About 70% of the graffiti had been removed, but the remaining 30% had been soaked deep into the substrate. Tests were conducted to determine the best process of extracting the remaining shadows from the substrate using our range of specialist chemicals, equipment and processes.

The photo on the left is a picture supplied by our new client of the graffiti at the start, the middle is how it was left by another contractor and the right is the proud work of The Graffiti Eaters.

Graffiti Removal Gone Wrong

We believe in restoring the substrate back to its original condition and leaving the area like new as if we were never there. Our commitment to our training standards and the quality of our Surface Restoration Technicians ensures results like this time and time again.

Graffiti Removal from Sandstone, Limestone, Granite, Marble, Terrazzo etc.

Many heritage-listed buildings have old, delicate and weathered soft stones that require extra special care and specialised processes. We understand this because we understand graffiti psychology. These surfaces can absorb graffiti up to several millimetres deep and are very soft, which means they can be disfigured easily.

If your sub-contractor doesn't know this, then you risk having irreparable damage caused and creating a problem more expensive to deal with than the original graffiti!

Generally speaking, these surfaces require more time and a series of various chemical applications to get a perfect result without any substrate damage. These surfaces should only be trusted to experienced Technicians, one incorrect step can cause permanent damage.

Any service provider with experience should talk you through the process and your options. If they don't, its a sign they don't have the knowledge and experience to get it right.

Graffiti Removal from Wall

Not all graffiti removal companies can reinstate delicate surfaces!

When it comes to those delicate surfaces like sandstone, signage and heritage listed buildings, there is one team you can call on to get the job right!

Our team was called in to remove enamel spray paint graffiti from this very important war memorial.

One of our competitors was first given this job and as the first photo shows they were not able to remove the graffiti, in fact, they made the graffiti removal very difficult due to the fact that they soaked the graffiti into the porous sandstone. They also damaged the stone in their attempt by using the wrong technique.

The Graffiti Eaters were then called in by a disappointed client who was referred by a colleague.

In the first photo, you can see that we have taken a gentle approach by chemically treating the stone, covering it in plastic and allowed the stains to be drawn out over time. After the treatments, the stone was neutralised and washed down. The second photo shows the graffiti removed with no further damage to the stone.

Graffiti Removal from Stone

The Graffiti Eaters are often called in after another company has failed to get a good result. Irreversible damage, however, can be done, so if you have a valuable surface and a job that must be done right, call the team with 35 years of experience to work with you.

Graffiti Felt Tip Pen on Sandstone

Graffiti removal from sandstone can be very difficult to achieve, especially when the graffiti is felt-tip pen as it penetrates deep into the sandstone making removal extremely difficult. Don't worry, we have the perfect technology to remove this type of graffiti safely and cost effectively!

The first photo shows attempted graffiti removal by a caretaker. The result was a slightly faded texta tag with discolouration of the sandstone block.

The second photo you can see that the staining has been drawn out of the stone and the graffiti totally removed.

To achieve this result, we applied a specially developed chemical to break down the ink and draw it to the surface of the stone, we then rinse it from the surface of the stone with water under pressure.

A difficult challenging job with a great result!

Graffiti Removal from Steel Surfaces

Graffiti removal from Steel Surfaces like colorbond steel, galvanising, zincalume, brass, aluminium and stainless steel.

Steel surfaces are very durable and non-porous, so graffiti soaking in is not an issue. They do however, often have delicate surface coatings to prevent corrosion, and these can be damaged, worn through or scratched.

The best removal method is a slower, but more accurate hand cleaning technique that controls dwell time and pressure on the surface coating. The use of an incorrect cleaner can permanently damage zincalume and galvanising. The use of an incorrect technique quickly wears through the high spots on colorbond. Remember, once these surfaces are damaged, they rust!

Most Australian homes have a colorbond garage door. But colorbond is now a product which is widely used to manufacture a range of products, as it is durable, versatile and low maintenance.

Graffiti on Colorbond Sign

Graffiti Removal from Colorbond

This expensive street sign is clad in colorbond steel and needs the graffiti removed without damage to the colorbond surface.

Our process restores the surface by using a soft chemical that breaks down the base of the graffiti without affecting the colorbond. We agitate gently using specially designed applicators and dissolve the graffiti's molecular base.

The surface is then carefully neutralised at the correct pH levels to ensure all chemical is removed from the surface.

The Graffiti Eaters have the technology and experience and have been able to clean some of the worst vandalised signs in town, restoring them back to their original splendor at a fraction of replacement cost.

Graffiti Removal from Colorbond Fence

Graffiti Removal from Colorbond Shed

Colorbond Steel can be protected and coated with anti graffiti coatings. The coatings do slightly increase the gloss level of the Colorbond, but preserve and protect the baked finish if repeated cleaning is required in the environment it is used.

The Graffiti Eater Team can design a coating application for your situation and budget. Just give us a call for advice!

If you have any Colorbond surfaces in need of some TLC just give our Team a call. We have processes and the experience in dealing with rust stains, oil, carbon, graffiti, pollution, moss, chewing gum and bill posters!

Graffiti Removal from Screen Printed/Computer Cut Vinyl Signage

One of the many challenges that City Councils, Shires and Road Authorities face is the continual graffiti attacks on road signs.

Many councils have problems removing graffiti from delicate road signs because most chemical formulations damage the special reflective qualities the signs must legally possess.

Due to these signs being very visible not only to the residents but also the travelling public, this graffiti can have a detrimental effect on the perceived amenity of the area, not to mention the risk to the motorist, when the sign detail is obscured with graffiti.

The pictures show the result that can be achieved with the correct chemicals, procedures and experience.

Graffiti Removal from Trees, Timber and Timber Paling Fences.

Timber is absorbent and has a grain that traps graffiti, making it difficult to remove. Using an incorrect base of cleaner can burn and disfigure timber sending it black in colour.

On weathered paling fences an over-clean mark can be a by-product of the removal process, requiring the entire paling to be cleaned from top to bottom. Over a few months the paling will re-weather, making removal unnoticeable.

Graffiti Removal from Cars, Trains, Buses and Automotive Duco.

Removing paint off paint is always an interesting challenge.

Correct processes rely on using cleaners that, when used with the correct dwell time, break down the softer fresh paint first, leaving the baked automotive enamel unaffected underneath.

It is important to remove graffiti on these surfaces when the graffiti is fresh, and within 1 week for the best results. Once it is baked on by the sun, the dwell time window is reduced making removal more difficult, longer and costly.

 

Graffiti Removal from Automotive Duco

Graffiti Removal from Painted Surfaces.

On good quality painted surfaces most graffiti can be successfully removed using cleaners. If the painted surface is older and oxidised, then removal is often difficult as an over-clean mark can stand out as much as the original graffiti.

In these cases it is often more cost-effective, and a better quality result is achieved, if the graffiti is sealed in, colour matched and painted over. The quality of the paint blend then comes down to the skill and training of the technician to match the paint colour and give it a weathered look, so that it blends in with the rest of the fade.

Graffiti Removal from Truck Bodies

Many a Truck Driver has arrived at his truck to find it vandalised with graffiti. We've got that covered too.

This example is of a typical truck body made of a colour bond roller door and colour bond sheet sides. The graffiti removal needs to be delicately done with a soft chemical that will break down the molecular structure of the graffiti without damaging the very thin colour bond coating.

In this instance the truck was worked on at The Graffiti Eaters workshop so that temperature and atmospheric conditions could be controlled at optimal levels for success.

Graffiti Removal from a Mod Grass Tennis Court

Mod Grass has become very popular with the extended drought and watering of grass being an issue. Unfortunately, that also means this horizontal surface has become a target for graffiti vandals.

Mod Grass is actually plastic and difficult to clean because solvents dissolve it and remove the colouring.

Graffiti Removal from a Mod Grass Tennis Court

Our Team utilises a delicate hand cleaning process that individually cleans both sides of the fibre with a delicate slow release chemical. This process requires a more accurate dwell time, but gives a fantastic result.

Graffiti Removal from Rendered Surfaces.

Cement render is a surface that is more difficult to remove stains like graffiti, rust and pollution from than natural brick because it is so porous. Stains can soak a long way into the render. Special care and equipment is required when pressure cleaning to ensure the render is not disfigured.

Our team have developed a range of cleaning solutions to remove graffiti from the various types of rendered finishes on the market.

Graffiti Removal from Rendered Surfaces

What is Cement Render?

Traditional cement rendering is the application of a premixed surface of sand, cement and lime to brick, cement, stone or mud brick. It is often textured, tinted or painted after application. It is generally used on exterior walls but can be used to feature an interior wall.
