Reasons to Call for Graffiti Removal in Melbourne for Your Business
Graffiti is a form of vandalism that can cost business owners dearly. Not only is there the cost of removal to take into consideration, but also the fact that the offensive words and images often contained in graffiti will likely discourage customers and clientele and may leave them feeling less secure. That’s why you need to act immediately as soon as you notice graffiti on your premises and why you should consider professional graffiti removal, available in Melbourne through Graffiti Wipeout.
You can define Graffiti as being the end process of defacing any property, either public or private, and it includes any markings made without the property owner’s permission.

Graffiti Spray Paint Cleaning & Removal Service
Graffiti vandalism is perceived to be an expression of urban art and there is a debate about whether this is indeed an expression of modern art. What is graffiti? Graffiti can be defined as something painted, written, scratched, scribbled or plastered on a surface such as a wall, billboard, or any public display area without the consent of the owner, or owners of the premises. These acts, defined as vandalism, are the wilful destruction of another’s property.
Graffiti Removal Service is at the forefront of combating this menace to the society. By its very definition, graffiti cannot be considered art because of its association with criminal activity. Oftentimes, graffiti in a neighbourhood creates an impression of lawlessness, drugs or crime and creates fear.
It may be an innocent expression of artistic skill to the perpetrators, but they are in the eyes of the law, trespassing and committing acts of destruction to property. A possible solution would be to create areas where this talent can be freely expressed without causing harm. Some councils have embraced this notion by commissioning murals to selected walls.
Negative Impacts of Graffiti
It may be an innocent expression of artistic skill to the perpetrators, but in the eyes of the law they are trespassing and destroying property. In addition:
- As most of these acts are carried out after dark and by persons unknown, they create a sense of fear amongst the citizenry who perceive it as a failure of the authorities to prevent these occurrences, or a general lack of security.
- As these acts are rarely carried out by a single perpetrator, graffiti vandalism is often associated with gangs.
- It influences diminished property values as neighbourhoods with graffiti are deemed dangerous.
- It is very expensive to clean up graffiti and costs the taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars.
- Expensive cleanup exercises deviate funds that could otherwise be allocated to more beneficial social services.
- While spraying aerosols, the perpetrators may inhale the toxic fumes, resulting in ill health.
- The resulting cleanup exercise is an environmental hazard as harsh chemicals are often used to remove it.
- In dangerous places like railway tunnels, it poses a safety risk for the perpetrators and cleaning personnel.
The majority of acts of graffiti vandalism are committed using one or more different coloured aerosol sprays. A possible solution would be to create areas where this talent can be freely expressed without causing harm.
