2. Removing graffiti from metal:
You will need to have paint thinner or light penetrating oil to start with as these will be your main abrasive products. Apply the substance to the area and try to remove the colours as effectively as possible – if paint still remains after, then try using bronze wool or light sand paper to remove access colouration. If you wanted a quick and more effective method however, our team has the expert knowledge needed to provide exceptional results without leaving any blemishes.
3. Removing graffiti from wood:
If the wooden material isn’t covered by a protective sealant and is still deemed sturdy, then removing the spray paint with mineral spirits will be your best option – however the porous material can easily absorb the chemicals. If such a method does not clean the wood effectively, then you may have to resort to painting over the graffiti.
4. Removing graffiti from brickwork/masonry:
Due to the absorbent properties of such materials, painting over the graffiti would be the best D.I.Y method. However, this process can lead to paint racking in the long run revealing the coloured graffiti underneath which will be an eyesore upon first impressions.
