Graffiti Removal Melbourne – Your Local Specialists
With the presence and problem of Graffiti in today’s society, many people and businesses hesitate to make the leap from traditional methods of ‘Band-Aid’ fixes such as patch painting over the problem or ignoring it all together.
A comment often made is that there’s no point in removing graffiti in Melbourne because it will only reappear anyway or, all it does is provide a blank canvas for vandals. This is not the case. The presence of graffiti will increase the chance of more graffiti being added and even damage occurring such as broken windows. This is because the place gives an impression of neglect or chaos, which is more likely to attract vandals. Graffiti tagging is ugly and unpleasant, and will devalue property if not removed.
The positive approach is, to think of graffiti removal as maintenance of your premises. The quicker the graffiti is removed, the easier it is to get off and the greater the impact against further vandalism occurring.
Considering the issues that businesses, public property and residential properties face, we are dedicated to being part of the solution; with specialised and proactive services at an affordable rate, keeping the integrity of being environmentally focused and providing premium customer service.
Why Remove Graffiti?
Most people don’t have the skills or equipment to successfully removed graffiti from their home or property without leaving any trace.
We also find that some of these people consider it a waste of time to remove graffiti as they think that the vandals will just come back and do it all over again.
This is not our experience.
Our clients are surprised to learn that when graffiti is removed quickly that the vandals generally DON’T come back. Knowing that someone is proactively removing their exposure is too much of a hassle for them and they’ll quickly move on.
However, if you don’t remove graffiti, you can see the following affects:
- Creates a poor business image for anyone who visits your premises and deems you as untrustworthy
- Can reduce your property value
- It will cost more time and money to fix if there’s additional graffiti being added to the first case
- May lead to an increase in anti-social behaviour in the area such as theft & the destruction of property.

Graffiti Removal Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I hire a professional graffiti removal service?
Hiring a professional graffiti removalist can provide several advantages over attempting to do it yourself. A graffiti removal company has specialised tools, knowledge, and experience that can ensure the process is completed effectively and without causing further damage to the surface underneath. This is particularly important when dealing with sensitive materials like brick or historic buildings where improper removal methods could cause irreversible harm.
The process employed by a professional service typically involves identifying the type of surface and the nature of the graffiti, followed by the application of suitable removal techniques and products. These companies are skilled at removing graffiti completely, without leaving behind any residual marks or discoloration. This proficiency is often due to their vast experience and access to professional-grade products that may not be readily available to the public. Hiring a graffiti removal company can save you both time and potential trouble, ensuring that the affected property is restored to its original state in a manner that’s both efficient and safe.
How do I stop graffiti on my house?
Preventing graffiti on your house involves a combination of strategies. Consider installing outdoor lighting, as well-lit areas are less likely to be targeted by vandals. Security cameras can also act as a deterrent and provide useful evidence if graffiti does occur. Applying anti-graffiti coating on your exterior walls can stop paint or ink penetrating deeply making it easier to clean. Keeping your property clean, well-maintained, and free of existing graffiti sends a message that the location is monitored and less likely to tolerate vandalism.
How long does graffiti last on walls?
How long graffiti lasts can vary depending on factors such as the type of paint used, the surface material of the wall, and the environmental conditions. Spray paint can last for several years on outdoor surfaces if left untreated. On the street where these drawings or markings are exposed to harsh weather conditions, the vibrancy of the paint may start to fade after a few years, but the graffiti itself can still be distinguishable for a long time.
Is it OK to paint over graffiti?
Where other graffiti removal methods may not be appropriate or feasible, painting over graffiti can be a viable option. This is particularly true when the urgency of maintaining the appearance of a structure is high. Though the method comes with potential challenges, especially with porous surfaces like brick or concrete where graffiti paint can penetrate deep into the tiny crevices, painting over graffiti can serve as a cost-effective solution.
Why is it important to remove graffiti quickly?
It is crucial to remove graffiti in a timely manner because of its detrimental impacts on both public and private spaces. Graffiti can be perceived as property damage, diminishing the visual appeal and value of a structure. When left unchecked, it might signal that neglect and disorder are tolerated in that area, causing further deterioration of the property’s appearance. These signs of neglect can attract more undesirable activities, making the environment seem unsafe and potentially impacting local businesses or residents negatively.
Quick graffiti removal also helps discourage future attacks. If graffiti artists know their work will be promptly erased, they may be less likely to use that location again, decreasing the chances of repeated offenses. By acting swiftly, communities and property owners can create an atmosphere of respect and care, demonstrating that the property is monitored and valued, thereby discouraging future instances of graffiti and other forms of vandalism.

Contacted Richard in April 2023 to ask for advice and a quote for removing fresh graffiti on the side of my building. He replied promptly to provide a price estimate and proposed schedule. Friendly and professional throughout, Richard showed up on time, did an excellent job of removing the graffiti, and stuck to the estimate. I have no hesitation in recommending his company based on this experience.

We have no hesitation in recommending Richard for any Graffiti removal work. Thank you Richard.
Richard did an amazing job We had graffiti on a wall that had painted with Porters paint. He went above and beyond, first cleaning the tag and then repainting the section so that it blended with the aged look of the rest of the wall. Could not recommend him highly enough!
We have been using the services of Richard from Bye Bye Graffiti now for a few years to remove graffiti from the façade of various buildings we manage. In all those times, whether the surface of the building was exposed brick, painted timber or rendered texture we have found the results to be totally successful with no visual traces or shadows of any graffiti once removed. Further, we have always experienced Richard to be competitive with his pricing and to attend in a timely manner – and in nearly all instances a courtesy phone call being received to advise that the job has been successfully completed. We have found both the level and quality of service being provided is second to none, and as a service provider we find this most reassuring in knowing the expectations of our clients are being well looked after when it comes to removing graffiti.
