How to Remove Graffiti from a Mural Protected with MuralShield™

For Small Scale "Tag" Removal Jobs:


Step 1 

Apply SENSITIVE SURFACE or HERITAGE GRAFFITI REMOVER with a solvent-rated brush. Agitate the graffiti with your brush as the product is applied.


Step 2 

Wipe away dissolved graffiti with a damp cloth.


Step 3 

Once satisfied with the results, thoroughly rinse the affected area and allow the surface to dry. Re-apply two to three coats of WORLD’S BEST GRAFFITI COATING by spray, roller, or brush.


For Large Scale Graffiti Removal Jobs:


For large scale removals, such as bombs, heavy tagging, filled in bubble writing, buffed or painted over murals.


Step 1 

Work in sections of 5-10 sq. ft. Apply HERITAGE GRAFFITI REMOVER using a pump up sprayer, nylon brush or broom, and agitate.


Step 2 

You will see the graffiti gradually dissolve on the surface. Rinse the dissolved graffiti using a pressure washer with a 25 degree tip maintaining a distance of 6” - 12” away from the mural surface in order to ensure no damage to the acrylic paint layer.


Step 3 

Any remaining graffiti can be spot cleaned using HERITAGE REMOVER or SENSITIVE SURFACE REMOVER and a nylon bristle brush.


Step 4 

Once all graffiti is removed, rinse the entire mural clean. Allow 15-30 minutes before reapplying WORLD’S BEST GRAFFITI COATING.


Step 5 

Apply two coats of WORLD’S BEST GRAFFITI COATING by spray, roller, or brush.

GOLDEN TIP

Graffiti removal from murals painted with acrylic type paints should be performed carefully with Sensitive Surface Graffiti Remover (SSGR).


Test a tiny area first to ascertain if success can be achieved. If so, then brush on and softly agitate with the brush small areas at a time.


Wipe off the dissolved graffiti with a DAMP CLOTH or rinse carefully with a hand sprayer filled with water and a damp cloth.


The sooner you get to the job the better. If you’re lucky enough to be able to clean the graffiti within 72 hours after graffiti has occurred this approach is very likely to be successful.
