Ipswich's Graffiti Squad
Steam cleaning and graffiti removal
Ipswich Borough Council has a dedicated Graffiti team whose mission is to remove graffiti as quickly as possible. Their motto is:
See it, report it, we'll remove it!
This service is available to anyone, although there may be a charge depending on individual circumstances.
What we do
We undertake work such as:
- Graffiti removal and anti graffiti coatings;
- High pressure washing of paths and block paving;
- Chewing gum removal;
- Mobile jetting of drains and gullies;
- Cleaning of commercial bins.
How the Squad work
Before any work can take place the Graffiti Squad will make contact with the property owner, or the owner will contact us. We will then decide what course of action is needed and whether there would be a charge or not.
Homeowners in Ipswich receive the service free of charge. If you rent the property, or it is a commercial premises, there is likely to be a charge, which is payable by the landlord.
All sexist, racist and offensive graffiti is removed from all properties free of charge and within 24 working hours from when the disclaimer is signed.
We offer a same day collect and return commercial bin deep clean and disinfectant service. Bins must be emptied before collection.
Before any work can begin, the property owner must sign a standard disclaimer which allows us to work on the property. If pedestrians or traffic frequently use the area, the work will be undertaken at a time agreed with the property owner to keep disruption to a minimum. All jobs are subject to weather conditions.
Keeping your property clear
We cannot prevent your property being targeted again but we can help to make it easier to remove the graffiti next time. We can apply a sacrificial or permanent anti graffiti coating to your building which prevents graffiti permeating brick, stone, mortar or metal, allowing for simple, quick and more cost effective removal next time.
If you would like more information or you would like to arrange a no-cost, no-obligation survey, please get in touch.
