Graffiti is a nuisance. To get rid of graffiti property owners may either hire professionals for the job or simply lay their hands on the matter. If you are trying to save money by not seeking professional graffiti removal services which is not a very good idea, we recommend you take a look at the following steps through which you can successfully remove graffiti. 

Before we go into the details pertaining to successful graffiti removal in Willetton we will like you to know that the cleaning supplies which you will be using during the process will determine the quality of the job. Besides, these cleaners will further be dependent on the type of surface material which needs to be cleaned. Surface materials can vary from wood and vinyl, to glass, masonry and aluminium. 

So basically here are 8 distinct steps to follow. Have a look: 

Preparing the area 

Gather necessary materials for the job. Now spread the drop cloths and plastic tarps to mask up the space which you want to cover up. Wear your pair of safety goggles and bring the hand cleaner at site. Yes!! We will like you to act like a professional from a high pressure cleaning company in Perth. Get those rubber gloves ready too along with other supplies like rags, scrapers and stiff wire brushes. 

Working from top to down 

Before you start with the graffiti cleaning process keep your focus on the surface. Is it dry? Is it clean? Well! This will define the outcome of the job. Start with the top most part of the surface and then end it right at the bottom. Find out if there is any streaking or running fluids ruining the surface. 

Identify graffiti 

For successful graffiti cleaning it seems like there is no other better option than high pressure cleaning in Willetton. It is one of the most effective practices for eliminating chalk graffiti which involves applying spray paint made of a certain type of solvent which is abrasive. For best results on masonry works, experts generally suggest using baking soda coupled with acetone, paint thinner and WD-40. 


If you want to get an optimal outcome approach the graffiti using the trial and error method. Always make your first attempt less invasive. For this you will require keeping the pressure at 1000 PSI. The range can however be increased to 3500PSI. This is however recommended for standard masonry surfaces. As soon as it comes to carved masonry work, just lower the pressure at the nozzle so that the architectural work doesn’t get affected. The average pressure applied is 500PSI. 

Use combination 

Experts suggest that you apply combination cleaning by merging solvent and pressure cleaning methods. 

Work on a larger surface 

Do not solely concentrate the pressure on the graffiti. It can permanently etch the surface and cause an outlining. 

Apply preventive coating 

A permanent preventive coating is essential as it helps prevent graffiti and other markings from adhering to the surface. Ask a painter in Perth WA about how you can apply this preventive coat. 


Last but not the least, if you have pressure cleaned the surface and there are still marks remaining, consider repainting the surface. Allow multiple coats so that the image can’t be seen. 

These are probably the best ways you can achieve a DIY cleaning of graffiti, although we will continue to say that a professional is best for the job.
