Paint & Ink Spills

Paint spills, whether the result of malicious vandalism or an accident - like a truck overturning, spread quickly and if not handled efficiently can cause environmental damage.

The techniques we employ to solve paint and ink spills are chemically based. By breaking down the base of the paint or ink, we can chemically suspend it, draw it from the substrate and vacuum collect the residue. Even the most difficult types of dyes have been successfully cleaned up using this process.

Paint Spill Containment and cleanup

enviro_pic1Accidental liquid spills do unfortunately happen and can cause extensive environmental damage & embarrassment to company reputations.

It is important that they are professionally managed and dealt with correctly and quickly. The Graffiti Eaters have mobile spill response units that can be mobilised quickly to contain a spill and prevent it spreading and entering sensitive areas like storm water drains.

The Process

The process involves containing the spill from spreading then stabilise the substance by covering it with an absorbent material designed to soak up and retain it.

The absorbent material is then collected & discharged according to EPA guidelines.

A series of cleaning solutions are then applied to the spilt liquid to break down its molecular bond and release it from the surface.

The final step in the process is to wash the surface down with water under pressure and leave the area totally clean and free of any contamination.

All waste water is vacuum collected to ensure nothing enters a drain or harms the environment.

So if this ever happens to you, don't get sweaty palms worrying about damaging the environment and dealing with the EPA, call in the experts to manage it all for you!

Regardless of the location, our Surface Restoration Technicians can manage pedestrians and vehicles, footpath closure permits and waste water to get your surfaces restored with minimal inconvenience.

Case study

Vandal attacks come in a variety of forms from paint thrown over buildings to oil and other chemicals that are used to do the most possible damage. The Graffiti Eaters see this form of Vandalism on a daily basis, so over 35 years we have gained a lot of experience at cleaning this mess up. This example shows a series of graffiti attacks over a brick painted building facade.

The vandalism attack is in this case resulted in paint over a variety of surfaces including apricot, red and cream bricks, concrete, colour bond, painted steel, glass and timber.

All the waste generated during the job was removed off site and processed in accordance with EPA requirements. Leaking paint tins left behind by vandals, wet undried paint and waste water from the cleaning operations were all dealt with to ensure no harm to the nearby creek. Stock in a storeroom behind the outside windows was also managed by our team to ensure that no further damage was sustained from the clean-up.

Every week, we receive calls from building owners who have trusted the cleaning of their property exterior to the lowest quote they could find. The results have been disastrous and the property owner or manager calls us to repair the damage.

The building cleaning industry is not fully regulated and there are unscrupulous characters doing very average work in an unsafe manner. These photos illustrate the type of shoddy work we often have to repair.
