Phoenix AZ Graffiti Removal

Block wall with spray painted graffiti – before.

Graffiti removal Phoenix AZ: Removing graffiti does more than clean up your own property; it sends a message to taggers that their messages will not be seen for long.  Graffiti is a form of communication to gang members, and a way of marking territories.  Quick removal of graffiti has proven to diminish its re-occurrence.

In the past, the only way you could remove graffiti paint from a block, brick or wood surface, was to either chip it off, sand blast it, use harsh chemicals and solvents or sand the paint until your arm fell off.  And in most cases, after these time consuming, or hazardous methods were deployed, the final solution was just to paint over the graffiti with a darker paint and hope no one noticed.

Now there is a newer process, known as Soda Blasting (often called sand blasting), where the surface (block, concrete, brick, wood) is cleaned or paint is removed or materials of any kind are stripped from the surface efficiently and safely.

Soda blasting very similar to traditional sand blasting, with the terms often being interchanged,  but it has the distinct advantage of cleaning the surface while not harming the original surface or the environment.

Graffiti and other paint is removed through a process called soda blasting

There are a number of blasting media available for removal of paint, stains and other surface coatings.

Blasting mediums include

  • Aluminum Oxide
  • Silicon Carbide
  • Glass Bead
  • Sodium Bicarbonate (Soda Blasting)
  • Walnuts

For most graffiti removal, we recommend soda blasting. This medium is less aggressive and less abrasive and leaves the structure in a more natural state with little to no etching of the underlying surface.

What is Soda Blasting?

Soda blasting is a process in which sodium bicarbonate is used as a blasting medium to remove paint, rust and corrosion from walls and other structures. It was actually used in the early 80s to restore the Statue of Liberty.

Soda Blasting is used instead of sanding or chemical stripping. Our graffiti removal Phoenix process saves time and is much more effective in the removal of paint, rust or other corrosion.

The process also leaves a more professional result and the resulting finish can be left alone or repainted easily.
