Why Hire a Professional for Graffiti and Vandalism Removal?

Graffiti may be an avenue for an artist to express themselves, but it’s more often the result of someone whose goal is to deface property in a negative way. A business that has been the victim of graffiti needs to have it removed. If it’s allowed to remain on the building, more will soon follow.

Removing Graffiti from Various Surfaces

It’s important to tailor the pressure level and cleaning method depending on the surface material. Some materials are more delicate than others, so a higher pressure with a powerful nozzle can cause significant damage.

Brick & Mortar

For brick & mortar surfaces, it is recommended to use a pressure level between 2,000 to 3,000 PSI, keeping a 25-degree nozzle tip approximately 2 feet from the surface. Older brick surfaces will require a soft washing technique. Begin washing from the top, moving down and adjusting the pressure level as the graffiti starts to wear down.


For painted or stained wood, it is suggested to use mineral spirits, a pressure level of 3,000 PSI, and a 25-degree nozzle tip to remove graffiti. This method may not be as forgiving on older wood, though, so it is recommended to paint over the graffiti instead.


For metal surfaces, the help of a paint thinner or industrial chemical graffiti remover is required. Then, pressure wash the surface using a recommended pressure level between 2,000 to 3,000 PSI to thoroughly remove any remnants.


This type of material can react negatively to cleaning agents as it is more porous than others. As such, use a chemical solvent instead, applying it gently onto the surface using a soft brush. Then, use low-pressure water to rinse it off.


Despite its reputation for durability, concrete can still suffer etches and notches using the wrong pressure level or nozzle tip. For concrete surfaces, it is best to use a pressure level between 2,500 to 3,000 PSI, adjusting it when necessary. This is coupled with a 25-degree flat nozzle.


For vinyl surfaces, use acetone or a paint remover solvent to erase paint. Then, apply a vinyl-safe detergent on the area before rinsing it off. It is recommended to use a 25-degree nozzle and a pressure level between 1,300 to 1,600 PSI as vinyl is a delicate material.

While there are general recommendations when it comes to removing graffiti from surfaces, it is important to remember that there is no blanket solution to this problem. There are a lot of variables to consider, such as what type of paint was used and how old the underlying surface material is. Washh takes all these factors into account and adjusts the cleaning method accordingly.
