Graffiti Removal London

Making your property look clean and professional again

If your property in London has attracted graffiti, you might be considering leaving it in place or, at least, delaying its removal. However, leaving graffiti untouched can carry its own risks, including reducing the value of a property, which could also attract further graffiti.

All the same, though, graffiti removal is no easy task for the cleaning novice. Graffiti can start damaging the underlying substrate from the moment of application. Furthermore, attempting to remove the graffiti in the wrong way can result in more damage than the graffiti alone.

This is why, if your property has been blighted by graffiti, you should seek a professional’s help in removing it. At Jigsaw Brickwork, we are trained in using sensitive, eco-friendly materials to lift graffiti from a surface without leaving unsightly ghosting or shadow.

Graffiti Removal Contractors in London

Quickly removing graffiti

The sight of graffiti can have an array of unfortunate repercussions for your building. If it's a business building, the graffiti could lead potential customers or clients to form negative first impressions. Graffiti can also indicate - rightly or wrongly - that the property is neglected and uncared for. Consequently, it can become a magnet for acts of anti-social and criminal behaviour.

Certain instances of graffiti should be removed as a matter of urgency - especially if they are offensive or promote hate and discrimination. On your call, we can quickly spring into action to completely remove the graffiti at a time suitable for you - even if that graffiti is several storeys high. Surfaces on which we can work include stone, concrete, metal, plastic and glass.

Removal of Graffiti in London

A professional solution

In treating the graffiti, we can act carefully to ensure that its removal leaves no discernible trace of its existence. The correct balance of chemicals and water is crucial to this task, which is why we routinely use the well-regarded ThermaTech cleaning equipment for removing graffiti. With this technology, we will extensively spray liquid heated up to 150°C, leading the graffiti to melt under pressure.

The system also allows us to lower the concentration of chemicals while increasing the milder agents' performance in the cleaning solution. As a result, the rest of your building will be suitably protected even during particularly rigorous cleaning jobs. Whether the graffiti-affected surface is marble, limestone, masonry, pebble dashing or of any other type, the ThermaTech will work its magic while maintained at a tightly regulated temperature.

Examples of such surfaces include render, sandstone and plastic. In treating any especially vulnerable surface, we will be careful to make sure that we adhere to suitable chemicals and just the right level of water pressure. Our use of ThermaTech cleaning system makes this straightforward, as the machine's standard pressure can be adjusted for small-scale, gentle cleaning.
One common problem with attempting to remove graffiti from these surfaces is that chemical applications risk damaging the paintwork. However, for painted surfaces, we can colour match before repainting the area in the replacement hue, leaving a clean, seamless-looking result. It will not be easy for onlookers to tell that the surface once had graffiti.
We know that, for many homeowners and businesses, seeing graffiti on their property can be stressful, while prompt removal can be of the essence. For this reason, when you require a rapid response, we can visit your property and remove the graffiti within just a few hours. Our removal services are available at any time of the day or night, seven days a week.
Before getting underway with the removal work, we will coordinate path and road closures and set up cordons in order to ensure that the safety of visitors, staff and the public will not be imperilled. We can also work outside hours when the property might be in use, such as business opening hours, and are fully trained in completing work to the highest safety standards.
Our services also include applying protective anti-graffiti coatings to surfaces that may be especially vulnerable to graffiti attacks. We will brush or spray these protective coatings onto the surface and so allow it to breathe, thereby preventing corrosion or discolouration. This anti-graffiti system can also shield the surface from other contaminations, like bird droppings.
