August 14, 2009, Newsletter Issue #180: How to Remove Graffiti with a Pressure Washer

Tip of the Week

Unfortunately the large blank surfaces of construction sites attract graffiti artists. Removing the graffiti can be time consuming and distract your crew from other jobs.

A hot water pressure washer combined with the appropriate power washing chemicals will cut the job time down and produce impeccable results.

*You will need an electric pressure washer or gas pressure washer of at least 300 psi and 4-5 GPM, coupled with a rotating nozzle for best results.
* Protect your eyes and skin and take the necessary precautions to prevent chemicals from entering the storm drains.
* Start power washing at low pressure from top to bottom using overlapping strokes.
* Wait a few minutes to let the chemicals act but do not let them dry on the surface.
* Rinse thoroughly after you are done.
