When you find graffiti on your bathroom partitions, walls, or lockers, you can take a common approach and repaint the vandalized area. This will require you to purchase matching paint and taking the time to paint over the graffiti yourself. Or you can hire someone to do it for you, which will save you some time but not any money.

Pressure Washing

The pressure washing method of removing graffiti consists of blasting away the vandalized area with pressure washing equipment that uses water and a mixture of a solvent, sometimes baking soda. This will require you to apply solvent to the area with graffiti beforehand and then extensively blast the area down.

This approach has known to be effective at removing the graffiti, but there are some consequences that you’ll have to look out for. When you pressure wash your bathroom walls or lockers, there’s the potential for the paint to be damaged or even the material, which will result in even more maintenance costs.

HDPE Plastic Bathroom Partitions and Lockers

While the above methods will work to remove your graffiti, they do so at a cost. Repainting and pressuring washing require significant time for maintenance, cost of equipment and, in the case of pressure washing, can even do more damage to your walls or lockers. But if you select HDPE plastic as the base material for your partitions or lockers, you’ll experience the easiest graffiti removal available.

HDPE material has an associated environmentally friendly cleaning solution specifically designed to remove graffiti. You won’t need any extra added chemicals, painting, or pressure washing. A facility manager just needs to apply the HDPE graffiti cleaner to the surface and then wipe it away. This simple, easy process will save you time and money while keeping your bathroom walls or lockers looking great.
