Graffiti Can Be An Eyesore
Unwanted graffiti on business premises and public buildings is undoubtedly an eyesore, and can significantly harm the image of an institution or organisation. In Adelaide, it is a particular problem, and many businesses, homes and public facilities have suffered the effects of being ‘tagged’.
In particular, spaces that are in the public domain—such as train stations, bus stops, schools, playgrounds, sports facilities and parks—are especially vulnerable to being attacked by graffiti vandals. The overall appeal and usefulness of such spaces is diminished when defaced, and so the removal of graffiti is a vital service in maintaining the viability and usability of shared public places.
Furthermore, graffiti on road and traffic signs can also be both a hindrance and a danger, obscuring important information and causing confusion for motorists.
Graffiti Begets Graffiti
Removing graffiti quickly and effectively is crucial because doing so acts as a deterrent to other graffiti vandals. As can be seen throughout Adelaide, graffiti rarely occurs as a one-off; rather, once one vandal has made their mark on a building, and that graffiti isn’t promptly and effectively removed, others are encouraged likewise to deface the same area, on the basis that their work will remain untouched.
Therefore, the quick, efficient and effective removal of graffiti is vital, not only to remove vandals’ work, but just as importantly to discourage others from joining in.

The Damage Caused by Graffiti
The paints, texta pens, felt-tip pens and other materials used by graffiti vandals can, if unattended to, cause log-lasting and destructive damage to buildings and other structures. This is because heritage stones (such as sandstone, bluestone and limestone), brickwork, masonry and rendering absorb paint, and it can therefore penetrate deep into the structure.
Ultimately, this can compromise the integrity of the stone or brick, leading to crumbling and erosion, and this can in turn lead to increased incidents of rising damp and salt deposits.
Therefore, getting graffiti removed quickly and efficiently is not important just for the public face of a building; it is also vital to ensuring its longevity and structural soundness.
