The Planet-Loving Way to Remove Graffiti & Gum

The Planet-Loving Way to Remove Graffiti & Gum

As the way, we treat our planet is becoming more of a problematic the topic each year, it’s important that we all do our bit to be kinder to our home; it is the only one we have after all. One of the issues that we, as a society, need to address, is the way that we approach cleaning. We all love that feeling of getting stuck in and our hands dirty with a good clean and sometimes it’s absolutely necessary, but do we ever stop and really think about all of the harmful chemicals and solvents that we’re voluntarily polluting our air and water supply with?

Graffiti removal is one of these necessities. Of course, nobody likes to see vulgar words or images largely spray painted on to buildings, bridges or statues, nor does anyone want to see it. 

So, what do we do?
We load up our equipment with our noxious graffiti removal spray in hand and get to work scrubbing it down to the brick-like it never happened. But it did happen, and the surface damage and chemical-laced water running down into our surface drain remind us of it. Plus, the stuff we’re using to remove said vandalism can sometimes be as harmful as the chemicals in the graffiti paint to start with… which brings us to an ethical crossroads.

What can we do to tackle it? 
Well, one alternative to traditional methods of graffiti removal is steam cleaning. The number one benefit of steam is that it is environmentally friendly and provides an all-natural solution for deep cleaning. With that in mind, Morclean developed the ThermaSteam.

The Award-winning ThermaSteam is a trailer-mounted system, purposely designed to effortlessly remove graffiti, paint, and gum whilst boasting a plethora of innovative, eco-friendly features and benefits.

One of these benefits is that the ThermaSteam uses a completely 100% chemical free method to remove graffiti. That’s right. No harmful chemicals or solvents. Just the pure power of hot steam. Not only does it remove graffiti without chemicals or solvents but paint and chewing gum are not safe from the ThermaSteam either.

Another great feature is that the ThermaSteam only uses approximately 5 litres of water per minute compared to traditional methods which can use around 15 to 50 litres of water per minute. Which ultimately, means reducing your water usage as well as much less wastewater to clear up after cleaning.

The ThermaSteam can also aid in minimizing damage to surfaces by adopting a ‘soft-washing’ approach, which makes it an ideal piece of equipment for cleaning protected buildings or statues etc.

Though the ThermaSteam is trailer mounted with a 500L water tank, Morclean can provide clients with the option to have the unit only as a van-mounted system.
