Graffiti vandalism is a problem faced by many communities around Australia, with most graffiti being associated with gangs and other troubled youth groups that have no respect for the law.
These individuals go around painting graffiti on walls and fences around businesses and community centers. While the vandals think that their art form looks good, community members and business owners beg to differ.
Graffiti tags can effect business as it repels people from visiting various stores and locations thinking that the area has trouble with gangs. This can create problems for businesses with potential loss in profit and customers.
One great way to deter graffiti vandals from painting on buildings, and to reduce the frequency, is to implement fast graffiti removal.
Fast graffiti removal is essentially where you get the graffiti removed off the business storefront as soon as it is painted. Removal should usually be done within 24 to 48 hours by using a professional graffiti removal service.
Research data conducted by various anti-graffiti organisations show that if graffiti is removed within 48 hours of being painted, it reduces the likelihood of the building being tagged again.
The main objective of graffiti artists is to show their work, so if it is removed as soon as it is put up, then no one will get a chance to see it.
As a result, graffiti vandals will look for somewhere else to paint and leave your building alone.
Ultimately, this will also reduce the frequency of removal that a property owner will incur as graffiti vandals will likely stop looking at your building as a target.
Over time, business owners will notice that their store front remains clean and graffiti free thanks to fast graffiti removal.
