A common frustration for every cleaning professional is tackling indoor graffiti problems. The graffiti found in restrooms and other areas often includes foul language, personally degrading messages, racist messages and other unsightly and unsavory messaging that needs to be removed quickly.
The Problem: Those that vandalize surfaces indoors with Graffiti are usually armed with a permanent marker or ink pen. The traditional solution to removing this type of graffiti has been an aerosol that sprays a toxic solvent mixture with a pungent odor. Typical solvents can include Toluene, Methylene Chloride, Perchloroethylene, Methyl-Ethyl Ketone, and 2-Butoxyethanol. While these solvents can be effective, the harmful vapors emitted are a health and safety problem, particularly in schools.
A Safer Solution: A better solution to removing interior graffiti is using a non-aerosol, low odor product with a low toxicity solvent system to quickly remove the graffiti. It is simply sprayed on and wiped off. It removes permanent marker and ink quickly, and it won’t harm most surfaces. It can also effective on marks caused by hockey pucks, soft balls and others items known to leave difficult to remove marks on surfaces. This type of system is not designed for paint based graffiti usually found outdoors. The job can be made even easier by using a foam eraser pad. Of course, always test surfaces before using.
Typical Surfaces where graffiti can be found:
- Walls and Tabletops
- Restroom Walls and Partitions
- Ceramic, Porcelain or other tile
- Mirrors and Windows
