How is the graffiti removed?
There are different procedures for each application based on the type of material the graffiti was placed on and the current temperatures outside. The City's preference would always be that the graffiti be "removed", but sometimes this is not possible so the graffiti would be "covered". If the city "removes" the graffiti it will be done with a high powered pressure washer and/or chemical graffiti remover. If the abatement tech deems that the power washer and/or chemical would cause more damage to the structure, the graffiti will be "covered" with a gray base coat paint that allows for complete coverage and serves as a primer coat for the owner to paint over matching the existing structure. The City will not match a particular color as this would be cost prohibitive to the taxpayers.
