Some may call it free speech. Others may say it’s merely a matter of free expression of a free spirit liberated from the onerous constraints of tradition and convention. And, gosh darn it, don’t you dare tread upon their First Amendment rights!
While the subject may be a topic for the more politically enlightened – or those who have nothing better to do – to discuss, unwelcome graffiti is an annoyance and an irritation that presents some significant challenges to those who want to clean the slate, literally speaking.
U.S. cities report that the estimated cost for graffiti removal and cleanup comes to about $1-3 per person, according to the U.S. Department of Justice. A 2006 survey by the department puts the estimated annual cost of graffiti removal at $28 million. Chicago alone budgeted $6.5 million in 2006 to remove graffiti.
The Citrus Solution
While graffiti on public property underlies perhaps a wider societal problem, we at Citrus King ® have just the product that’ll allow you to rid yourself of these unwelcome intrusions in an easy, safe and efficient manner.
Our products are high-quality and natural and are made from pure orange oils. Major public agencies and private industries – such as metropolitan transit systems; federal, state and local governments; corporations; and contractors – have used our products to remove graffiti, gum, adhesive and other stubborn materials.
Our products can be used in homes, cars and boats and on carpets, seats, upholstery, wood, vinyl, glass, tile and concrete. In particular, Citrus King ® Graffiti and Adhesive Remover, which is safe and pleasant to use as directed, is one of the most convenient and effective methods to accomplish your cleaning goals.
Remove the Graffiti
Citrus King ® Graffiti and Adhesive Remover cleans away graffiti from both porous and nonporous surfaces. Long drying times, especially when soaking is involved, helps considerably in eliminating any traces of graffiti.
Citrus King ® Graffiti and Adhesive Remover also removes all adhesives and glues (except for cyanoacrylates). Tape and poster glues, anti-slip strip glues in tubs and mastic in carpet backing disappear with application of Citrus King ® Graffiti and Adhesive Remover.
We recommend users first apply the product on small, inconspicuous areas to ensure the surfaces aren’t damaged.
Here is how to use Citrus King Graffiti and Adhesive Remover:
- Pour, spray or brush the product over graffiti and wait 1 – 5 minutes.
- Brush with stiff bristled brush or wipe off with sponge or rag.
- Repeat if necessary.
- Large areas can be power washed with water.
How does it work?
Citrus King Graffiti and Adhesive Remover removes graffiti paint in layers; some older, thick spray paints may require more dwelling time and more agitation with stiff-bristled brush.
Scrubbing painted graffiti before applying the product opens the pores of paint which allows the product to do the job faster. On masonry allow 10 minutes or more soaking time before brushing with wire brush. Rinse with water. It is always best to remove graffiti within 24 hours.
If used with knowledge and care, these Citrus King ® products, made from a citrus solvent, can be used to keep your surfaces spotless and free of unwanted speech and art.
