One of the least pleasant aspects of operating a business is graffiti removal and prevention. Businesses often suffer the frustrating and unsightly effects of graffiti and other kinds of vandalism. Removing graffiti requires expert knowledge of substrates and paint types, so it is best removed by a commercial contractor like St. Louis Cleaning and Restoration.
Graffiti is not limited to just businesses. It can be found on the walls, parking lots and driveways of schools, churches, libraries and private homes. Some offenders may propose that it is a form of “artistic creation”, but let’s face it–if it is unwanted, it is nothing short of vandalism. Graffiti and other forms of vandalism are unsightly and can negatively affect the appearance of a building, street, neighborhood, or entire town.
