Why Graffiti Should Be Removed Immediately:
The City of Angels is the creative capital of the world. Los Angeles attracts creative people and inspires a wide-open space to create. From Venice Beach to DTLA, street murals are a popular way to increase foot traffic to many areas and help support local businesses. This type of street art adds color, vibrancy, and character to the surroundings, but graffiti does not.
Graffiti, sometimes confused with street art, is put up by vandals and promotes crime and destruction. Graffiti has been used by gangs looking to mark their territory. If graffiti is not removed other vandals and gangs may also want to demonstrate their impact. This creates a multiplier effect which can lead to gang violence fighting over a territory. It’s best to remove graffiti immediately to prevent additional marks.
Additionally, graffiti will eventually sunbake into the surface. The longer the graffiti stays, the harder and more expensive it is to remove.
Challenges & Solutions:
Graffiti clean up comes with some challenges:
- Accessing at a hard-to-reach area
- Removing without damaging the surface material
RayAccess employs highly advanced rope access techniques and pressure washing services to access even the hardest-to-reach graffiti marks. We have worked at the most difficult to reach job sites including historic buildings, museums, churches, hotels, hospitals and industrial facilities.
With our cleaning solutions, pressure washing, and paint supplies – we remove all kinds of graffiti vandalism. Our technicians pay special attention to protecting surfaces and have experience dealing with stucco, stone, brick, concrete, and glass.
Our Graffiti Removal Process:
We offer free estimates for all jobs including residential or commercial. For most residential jobs, we can give an estimate based off a photo. For large or complex jobs, we may send a project manager to do a walk through with your property manager.
The Four Step Process: Assessment, Pre-treat, Wash, Paint (if necessary)
Assessment: We always plan ahead for the removal process as every type of graffiti requires a different process and treatment. For example, some paint graffiti which stayed for a long time on the glass may etch the surface. That would require a different approach of deep polishing and abrasion to remove the damage. Also, some hard-to-reach areas require special access plan, equipment and skills to safely do the work.
Pre-treat: A graffiti removal chemical is applied to the graffiti to clean and eliminate the multiple layers of paint.
Clean up/Wash: Depending on the surface, our technicians use mechanical removal by scraping, polishing or pressure washing in combination with chemical treatment. Special consideration is always given to prevent any damage for the original surface.
Paint: If necessary, we may have to paint over the graffiti to remove it. Usually, it’s the case when graffiti is on painted surfaces. Thus, graffiti removal chemicals could damage the original coating. As a licensed painting contractor, we know what process to use so the paint will match and adhere well.

I'm really happy with work RayAccess did for us on painting the exterior of Loews atrium. At first, I though it would be a nightmare project because of old paint condition and difficult access to some areas. But it turned out to be a very professional and smooth job! Thank you.
