How to Remove Graffiti with a Pressure Washer

Pressure Washer Product Expert

Unfortunately, walking out of your home to find your property defaced with graffiti is an all-too common situation nowadays.

It can be expensive to remove and cause serious damage to surfaces.

But, before you go calling the professionals you may want to try taking care of it yourself.

With the use of a pressure washer, unsightly graffiti can be removed, returning your vandalized walls to their prior state.

Luckily, you won't need to use any detergent when you're taking care of this mess.

Begin spraying the damaged surface with a general, low-pressure spray pattern. Start with the nozzle about 2 feet away from the surface and move closer until the graffiti begins to wear.

If this doesn't do the trick, switch to a general, high-pressure spray. Make sure you're not causing any damage to the underlying surface if the graffiti is on soft material, such as a wood fence or stucco wall.

If the graffiti is on brick or masonry, it will be most effective to use a turbo nozzle.

A turbo nozzle attachment will give your pressure washer that extra kick you may need and can cut the removal time almost in half.
