remove graffiti1. Steam cleaning

Steam of 150 degrees C will clean the facade. The high pressure and the heat of the steam ensure the graffiti will loosen and dissolve. Calmly go over the graffiti with the steam cleaner. This is generally considered to be the best and the easiest method. However, it doesn't work every time. Particularly when several layers of graffiti have been sprayed. 

2. Compressed air and baking powder 

You can remove graffiti yourself with a combination of baking powder and compressed air. This method is friendlier for the surface the graffiti is on, but as a result not always as efficient. Apply the baking powder to the surface and spray it off with compressed air. In many cases the graffiti will come off. 

3. Sand blasting 

Sand blasting is the most aggressive way of removing graffiti. A blasting agent, such as sand or fine gravel, is added to water. You use this with a high-pressure jet and spray the graffiti from the wall. This method is effective, but we do not recommend it because it damages your wall.
