Graffiti removal

I got a call from a woman looking to get some graffiti removed. The graffiti is only a couple weeks old (not sure if that matters)

What product can I use? Preferably something I can get at Home Depot or Lowes, she is looking to get it done this week ASAP.

This section is about 6’x15’ or so

The piece on the left is about 6’x4’ and the right is about 2’x3’

The Dino tag is about 5’x4’
The other smaller ones are about 2’x3’

This is on a newly painted brick building, and some of the tag is on a freshly painted wood siding. All the same color just different surfaces.

I’ve never done a graffiti removal job, but after looking into this I think I can make this job work.

Look forward to hearing any and all input, mostly chemicals, technique, and a price estimate,

Thanks in advance guys

Agreed their products work great!

Also, If it’s freshly painted and they still have the color handy, just repaint. That might be the easiest in this situation.

I agree with Mike. If it is newly painted, re-painting could be the best option here. You don’t always need to “remove” it in the sense you are thinking. On painted surfaces sometimes it just makes sense to cover it up with a fresh coat of paint.

GOOF OFF graffiti remover is available at Home Depot and works like a charm!

Goof Off does come in handy, for sure. Is that Riptide from Tampa?

We use Taginator. Works great on Masonry surfaces. Tagaway for signs. If those bricks are painted then just use paint and paint over them. If they are not painted then I would use Taginator. Hard to tell in the pic if that is paint or natural color.

If those are painted all a graffiti remover is going to do is remove both paints and make things worse…

Good Luck

We don’t come across much graffiti at the places we maintain here in Tampa/Trinity FL
It’s always great to hear about products that actually work though.

I agree with Ty that Taginator is our go to for masonry surfaces

Wet-sandblasters can also be effective but may negatively impact the surface. Obviously graffiti removal on painted surfaces can be a little trickier than non-painted masonry surfaces.
