Graffiti Removal Service

Columbus Graffiti Removal

At Modern Painting, we take pride in being a part of the Columbus community. Our commitment goes beyond removing graffiti; it’s about maintaining the integrity and beauty of our city. We understand the impact graffiti can have on neighborhoods and businesses, and we are dedicated to eradicating it promptly and professionally.

Our graffiti removal process cleans all surfaces and substrates including brick, concrete, stone, stucco, siding, metal, wood, glass, perspex, signs, buildings, walls, ground areas, and more.

It’s important to note that graffiti should be removed as soon as possible. No matter how long the graffiti has sat on the surface, we can remove it.

A few of the major reasons why graffiti removal is vital for your business:

  • The presence of graffiti can encourage further acts of vandalism
  • Customers are likely to avoid business that boasts unsightly graffiti
  • Your commercial property value will go down because of unwanted graffiti


The Graffiti Removal Process

Our techs may use multiple types of media to remove the paint without damaging the substrate. After inspection, the technician may select wet removal using an industrial hot and cold pressure washer. This equipment can inject detergent, solvent, or plain water depending on the surface to be cleaned and how the run-off can be controlled.

Another new technology is dustless blasting using dry media. Each type of media has unique properties and levels of aggression.

  • Soda (for delicate surfaces)
  • Dustless Sandblasting (removes light to medium coatings from the stable surface)
  • Shot (removes industrial coatings and heavy corrosion)
  • Dry Ice Blasting (no abrasive or chemical run-off)
  • Slurry Blasting (prevents airborne particles)
  • Power Washing (cold or hot steam to remove grime and grease)
  • Chemical Stripping (encapsulates hazmat for removal)

Anti-Graffiti Protection

Once the surface has been cleaned, we can apply a clear, protective coating (a.k.a. “sacrificial coating”). This invisible layer penetrates and seals the surface allowing future graffiti to be more easily removed.

Since 1978, we have served businesses and industry with paint removal. Our techs will identify the paint and choose the most environmentally friendly process of removing it with minimal runoff or damage to sensitive plantings.
