EzyClean Graffiti Removal Product Selector

Proven & tested in the field not in a lab!

All EzyClean Graffiti Removal Products are tried and tested (many, many, many times) in the field by technicians on all types of surfaces which had been vandalized with spray cans, textas, inks, oils, wood stains, dyes… and the list goes on.

The majority of chemical companies still to this day, develop their products in a lab thinking they will work on anything & everything…and they don’t, we have tried and tested them all.

Our exclusive new “SupaSafe” range has been independently tested and meets all Australian Government Non Dangerous Goods Criteria. 

Since our launch in 2004, we are proud to say that after all these years, you can be assured we will always be developing and testing our products to meet the new challenges of graffiti vandals mediums. 

Graffiti Removal Tips & Tricks

Tilt-up or precast concrete panels

Tilt-up or precast concrete panels hit with spray can graffiti can sometimes be a nightmare, mainly because they want to slurp up and dry out the graffiti remover before it has penetrated and done its work.

For this very reason, we use a coarse type Scotch-Brite scourer to break the surface and push in and agitate the EzyClean Red Remover into the graffiti as we apply it. The results of this exercise are well worth this extra effort.

Boot polish markers

Boot polish markers (which are really just a plastic bottle with a foam applicator and are easily recognized by thin drips running down vertically from the ‘tag’) are best removed with EzyClean Pink Shadow Remover.

Wet the tag first with water, leave for a minute or two, then apply EzyClean Pink Shadow Remover.
Either wipe or pressure wash off depending on the surface type.

Posca Pens

Some markers such as Posca Pens, which are an easily identified as flat chalky-style water-based marking pens (usually in light blues, greens, watermelon pinks and other pastel colors) respond better in the first instance to neat EzyClean Pink Shadow Remover, than they do to EzyClean Blue Graffiti Remover.

This can also be true of some leather dyes and boot polish, which appear as broad strokes with lots of drips. These sorts of markers on concrete can show some resistance to EzyClean Red Graffiti Remover, so it is well worth testing with EzyClean Pink Shadow Remover first before flooding with EzyClean Red Graffiti Remover

Feltpen Markers

Some feltpen markers on concrete, bricks etc. which have not been affected by EzyClean Red Graffiti Remover will not appear to fadeout after application of EzyClean Pink Shadow Remover. These are best removed with a hot water pressure cleaner.

Graffiti Removal, Rejuvenation and Anti-Graffiti Protection of the Heritage Listed Old Swan Barracks

Graffiti Removal, Rejuvenation and Anti-Graffiti Protection of the Heritage Listed Old Swan Barracks

Overview

Graffiti Gone WA have been engaged by Ancient Enterprises for the Provision of Graffiti Removal Services including the removal of multiple graffiti vandalism tags from heritage listed natural limestone facade running along two boundaries of the Old Swan Barracks from the corner of Museum Street and Francis Street and the supply and application of EzyCoat Repel, our special permanent topical anti-graffiti coating.

Accountability

Graffiti Gone WA provide the highest levels of professionalism, work ethic, safety, accountability, and reliability of graffiti removal services to all of our customers.


Three Golden Rules of Graffiti Removal & Product Selection

At Graffiti Gone WA, we understand and fully acknowledge there is a responsible way to manage graffiti removal successfully. We always adhere to our three golden rules of graffiti removal:

  • Identify the substrate
  • Identify the defacing medium
  • Apply safely the appropriate means to remove the graffiti tag.

 

Advantages of EzyClean Graffiti Removal Chemicals

The Graffiti Gone WA team are fully trained up in the correct selection, preparation, and application of the full range of EzyClean graffiti removal chemicals and products.  The EzyClean range of graffiti removal chemicals have three significant advantages over other inferior products:

  • An extended wetting agent which will enable the product to stay wetter longer and not dry out quickly, making the graffiti / tags easier to remove, even in hot Western Australia conditions.
  • EzyClean graffiti removal products have a unique characteristic whereby you can apply the product “wet on wet”, whereas all other graffiti removal chemicals available require the surface to be dry before re-application is possible. The major benefits of the “wet on wet” process are increased productivity and efficiency
  • All EzyClean graffiti removal chemicals become pH inert when hit with water.

  

Graffiti Removal Product Selection

For the removal of the multiple graffiti vandalism tags from the natural limestone façade, from the premium range of EzyClean graffiti removal chemicals, we will be using EzyClean Red graffiti removal chemical and EzyClean Pink shadow Remover

EzyClean Red has been specifically developed to be used and is Ideal for removing spray can paint, ‘ironlak’, buff ink, molotow and permanent markers from any bare brick, masonry, concrete, limestone, sandstone and other non- painted surfaces with no damage to the surface substrate or the environment.


EzyClean Pink Graffiti Shadow Remover

Do not be haunted by shadows/stains after graffiti removal any longer. EzyClean Pink Graffiti Shadow Remover is best described as “magically brilliant”. This product bleaches out the aggressive texta and marker shadows left behind after graffiti removal from concrete, stone, granite, and painted surfaces. (See Figures 3 and 4)

Graffiti Removal Chemicals Application

Due to the very porous nature of the heritage listed substrate (natural limestone) façade of the Old Swan Barracks building, the EzyClean Red will be applied by brush implementing a ‘Soaking Technique’. The soaking technique combined with an extended dwelling time will allow the chemical to enter the capillaries of the limestone and became much more effective for the removal of the graffiti vandalism tags.  Once the dwelling time has completed, a low pressure ‘Hot Water’ rinse & clean will be applied to wash down the façade.

Any of the graffiti tags which have strong ink colors, may require a second application of the EzyClean Red process.

The EzyClean Red process will be supported as required by the supply and application by brush of the EzyClean Pink shadow remover. The EzyClean Pink shadow remover is applied by brush and left to dwell for an extended period of time and has the extraordinary ability to be able to pull graffiti inks and spray paints from the most porous of substrates.

EzyCoat Repel Anti-Graffiti Coating Application

Following the removal of all of the graffiti vandalism tags, all of the walls will be washed down with a biodegradable detergent and rinsed with hot water, to ensure the walls are free of all dirt, debris, and grime.

The EzyCoat Repel will be applied to the natural limestone façade using an “airless sprayer’ delivery system using the ‘Cross-Hatching Process’.

Two coats of EzyCoat Repel will be applied to the walls. EzyCoat Repel is applied and goes on cloudy but dries clear. The Ezycoat Repel takes seven days to cure.

 

Graffiti Removal After Application of EzyCoat Repel

Once the Ezycoat Repel has cured on the natural heritage limestone walls of the building, the removal of any new graffiti tags is simple, cost effective and efficient. EzyClean Black is used to remove any new graffiti tags.

Note: If there are any graffiti tags on the walls during the 7-day curing process of the EzyCoat Repel, the tags are to be left on. After the 7th day, then the EzyClean black can be applied and the graffiti tag can easily be removed, with no damage or effect to the wall.

 

Summary

EzyCoat Repel is by far the most effective, cost effective anti-graffiti coating system available in Australia today, designed for vertical services, developed by graffiti removal professionals and their chemists to satisfy the demands and requirements for customers providing peace of mind and confidence that any graffiti vandalism tags can easily be removed.

Many thanks for the Project Plan on the work you undertook at the Old Swan Barracks. We really appreciate this documentation and the time taken to send it through.

The City’s Heritage Officers were recently out on site completing the biennial Heritage Building Condition inspections for all the listed building, and noted the graffiti removal at Swan Barracks was underway. It’s great to know this work is now complete.

Graffiti Removal & Rejuvenation of the McCallum Park Skate Bowl

Graffiti Gone WA would like to thank the Town of Victoria Park and the WA Police ‘Goodbye Graffiti’ State Task Force for the opportunity to complete the works for the graffiti removal and rejuvenation of the McCallum Park Skate Bowl in Victoria Park.

All graffiti vandalism tags consisting of house paint, lubricant based spray cans, acrylic spray cans, inks and texter were successfully removed from the skate bowl surface areas and floor. Two coatings of EzyGuard penetrating sealer were applied to all surface areas including the skate bowl walls and floor. This work was completed between the 3rd to 7th August 2020.

This has sent a clear message that graffiti vandalism will not be tolerated by the City of Victoria Park and the WA Police ‘Goodbye Graffiti’ State Task Force. Utilizing and implementing an ongoing graffiti management strategy, Graffiti Gone WA are confident that this facility can be maintained for all members of the public to enjoy.
