Removing Graffiti from Concrete
Concrete barriers, buildings, and sidewalks are prime spots for graffiti artists to make their mark. However, some graffiti removal products are not specialized for use on porous surfaces, like concrete, and some may think they need harsh chemicals to remove graffiti substances from these specific surfaces.
The following graffiti removal products from Dumond Chemicals are specialized to aid in removing graffiti from porous surfaces, such as concrete, in a safe and effective way:
- Watch Dog™ Wipe Out® Porous Surface Graffiti Remover. Even as a biodegradable product, this graffiti remover cleans heavy graffiti from porous, non-painted surfaces in residential or industrial areas.
Of course, in order to be effective, the graffiti barriers need to be applied to the concrete before the surface is defaced. Dumond Chemicals makes it easy to cover and protect large areas with spray paint removal products that can cover up to 325 square feet per gallon of coating.
Dumond also now offers samples of their Wipe Out® Porous Surface Graffiti Remover so that customers can test the product to be sure the graffiti removal tool will work for a specific application, whether for household or commercial cleaning.
How to Remove Spray Paint from Concrete
When removing spray paint or other graffiti from concrete, it’s best to test the surface using the paint removal tool before covering the entire area. The efficiency of these products can be reduced in cold weather, so be sure both the surface and air temperatures are at least 40° F. Depending on what graffiti remover you choose, you can spray, brush, or roll the product over the surface to be cleaned. Wait for about 15-30 minutes for the product to cut through the graffiti substance, and then wash the surface clean with a pressure washer or scrub. If the cleaner used has a high pH, you may need to neutralize the surface before repainting or retreating with a graffiti barrier.
