How to Remove Bathroom Graffiti

It’s an age-old problem: graffiti in bathrooms. For whatever reason, some visitors to your business choose to use the privacy of the bathroom to place graffiti on various surfaces — including bathroom partitions. This graffiti issue can be incredibly frustrating, especially because there are few ways to proactively stop graffiti before it starts.

Thankfully, graffiti can be removed if you take the right steps, and you can invest in tools that help prevent it before it happens in the first place. You may be one of the many business owners wondering: How do I stop vandalism in my bathroom? If so, here are a few ideas for you to consider.

Cleaning Graffiti When it Occurs

Need to know how to remove bathroom graffiti? Follow this process:

  1. Daily inspections: If you have a graffiti issue, it’s important to stay on top of the problem. Make sure your team or janitorial staff is looking inside bathroom stalls on a daily basis. It’s far easier to clean and eradicate a small graffiti problem in real-time than it is to remove a large batch of graffiti that builds up over time.
  2. Non-abrasive cleaning products: You don’t want to damage surfaces in your bathroom while cleaning graffiti, so make sure you use non-abrasive products. You may find that different types of cleaning solutions work better on different types of graffiti. Keep in mind that abrasive sponges or pads can also rip paint from your surfaces and create an even bigger problem.
  3. Pressure washing for big issues: If you do have a larger graffiti problem, you may need to explore a pressure-washing solution. Keep in mind that pressure washing can do more harm than good, so start at a low pressure level and work your way up. You’ll eventually find a level that gets the job done without damaging your surfaces.
  4. Preventative measures: If you want to stop this issue altogether, you can consider home remedies, like covering surfaces in mineral oil (making it easier to clean later). But the better, faster, more effective method is installing graffiti-resistant surfaces in your bathrooms.
