How do you remove graffiti with a pressure washer?

Removing Graffiti With A Pressure Washer

If you run a local community organization and are responsible for graffiti removal in the neighborhood, pressure washing is one of the best ways to go about it. If you cannot afford to purchase the right graffiti removal equipment, see if the town will spring for one. You would be surprised at what the local government might be willing to help you pay for if they don't have to pay for the man hours to get the actual job done. If that is a dead end, you could see how many of your neighbors would be willing to chip in to by one.

A good pressure washer can use a number of different graffiti removal chemicals and you can adjust the pressure as needed. Whenever you head out to clean up the neighborhood, always make sure you are using the right chemicals and pressure setting for the surface you want to clean.

Start by purchasing chemicals that work best on the surfaces you need to clean the most. If the majority of your neighborhood's graffiti is on concrete walls, you want to start with chemicals designed for that surface. Using the wrong ones might cause more damage to the wall than the graffiti itself.

Sandblasters can also be used to get rid of unwanted art on the walls of neighborhood buildings, but make sure you follow the safety instructions that come with it and wear safety goggles at all times. Also, a rotating spray nozzle will certainly make your job easier without the added frustration of twisted hoses and limited rotation to get those hard to reach angles.
