Graffiti Removal

At Nifty Services we are experts in graffiti removal. We have the knowledge, skill and technology to remove graffiti form all types of surfaces, as we have a variety of chemicals, the right equipment and numerous techniques which enable us to achieve these results. Testing is carried out at the commencement of each job to determine the appropriate chemical, equipment and procedure required for removal. This ensures that the graffiti is removed in the safest and most effective manner and produce the optimum result without damaging the underlying surface. When the graffiti has been removed, the surface will be restored back to its original state and appear as if there had never been any graffiti present.

We remove graffiti from aluminum, banners, brickwork, coated surfaces, Colourbond, concrete, glass, painted surfaces, Perspex, plastic, render, shade cloth, signs, steel, tiles, timber and vehicles.

Sometimes it is determined that the appropriate method of removal is to have the graffiti painted over. We are able to provide colour matching and painting (see below).

People without experience in graffiti removal who try to remove it themselves may cause damage to property, the environment, themselves or others. See what can happen when graffiti has been removed incorrectly on the following page; Graffiti Removal Gone Wrong

You can rely on us to do the job right and say bye bye to graffiti.

Surface Restoration

Surfaces over time can be affected by various elements like; wear and tear, weather, ultraviolet rays and pollution, they can cause surfaces to change colour or appear lifeless and dull. Some surfaces have coatings or paintwork that has been worn and is in need of reapplication. We can clean or strip surfaces and reapply coatings where needed.

A problem that affects certain surfaces is oxidisation (as shown in the pictures below). The copper plating on this shop front had a clear coating that had deteriorated over time. The exposed surface areas had oxidised, which gave it a patchy dirty green colour in appearance. The old coating was stripped back and the oxidisation chemically treated, which restored the copper back to its original colour.

Pressure Cleaning

You may have areas around your premises that are looking dirty, grimy and dull or foot traffic areas that have become slippery and dangerous due to the buildup of dirt and moss. We have a high pressure water cleaning service that removes these dirty and dangerous substances and rejuvenate the appearance of your property. We remove dirt, moss, carbon, grime, dust, cobwebs etc. from walls, driveways, pathways, decking, stairways, fences and retaining walls.

Colour Matching

A special skill that we have at Nifty Services is colour matching. We carry a range of paints and colour tints ready to used at all times. Having this ability is a great advantage as paint can be colour matched and mixed on site. This means that the most accurate match can be achieved and a lot of time is saved, as we don’t need to travel to have paint mixed by suppliers. Saving time means saving money and these savings help to keep our prices lower.
This service is valuable at times when you have an area that needs repainting and you need to match an existing colour but you don’t know the colour name or formula. We can mix the colour accurately and provide a small sample pot or amount of paint required for your use. Paint suppliers are able to use this wet paint sample to mix more paint when required in the future.

The photos below are an example of where it was required to paint over the graffiti. The colour match was so accurate that only this section of wall needed to be repainted. This is an example of the brilliant results that we are able to achieve.

Painting

In addition to our graffiti removal and cleaning services, we also have a painting service, which also incorporates colour matching. We can provide that professional service to freshen up the appearance or change the colour of your property or at times when it is decided that the best method of removing graffiti is to paint over it. When painting is required for the removal of graffiti, the paint can be colour matched and mixed on site. Then paint is applied over the graffiti and that entire section of the surface to the nearest architectural lines so that it matches in with the rest of the paintwork and looks neat and tidy. Leftover paint and colour formulas are kept in case it is needed for future use.

We often see where graffiti has been patch painted over previously, using a different colored paint (as shown in the left hand photo below). This looks very poor and it certainly didn’t deter vandals from re-offending. We repainted the entire side wall of this building, and then our client had new sign writing done with a clear anti graffiti coating applied over the top. The anti graffiti coating will protect the signage, so that if it does have a graffiti attack, it will be removed without causing any damage.
