According to Chron Magazine, the Small Business Administration estimates that vandalism can cost a business an average of $3,370 per incident. In particular, graffiti can deter customers, who may view your establishment as unkempt or unsecure. When it comes to graffiti removal, pressure washing is the best option-here’s why.
#1. Less Expensive and Time-Consuming than Painting
Some property owners prefer to cover graffiti by painting over it. While this can prove effective, painting is also more costly and time-consuming. Some markings could even require more than one coat of paint, thereby adding even more to the cost. And while waiting for the paint to dry, the graffiti underneath will still be clearly visible.
Power washing provides almost immediate results, and can be performed in only a short time. There is no need to prep the surface or spend hours painting over graffiti.
#2. Cleans at the Same Time
Regular pressure washing is the best way for your business to maintain a fresh appearance. When you use it to remove graffiti, you’ll also be getting rid of any dirt or grime that is lurking underneath. As a result, your facility could look even better than it did before vandals targeted it.
