Tips to Succeed

  • Before cleaning, always get the property owner's permission.
  • Clean new graffiti within 24 hours of its discovery.
  • Be prepared to increase your efforts during the warm months.
  • Be persistent! Continue to remove or cover recurring graffiti until the vandals get tired and give up.
  • If your personal safety is a concern, request a uniformed police officer in a marked vehicle to accompany your cleanup group.
  • Use common sense.  Minimize the chance of injuries by attempting to remove graffiti where it is easily accessible, and be aware of road hazards.
