Graffiti and vandalism in Chicago affects all types of commercial and residential properties. Our action plans for removing graffiti and cleaning up vandalism are based on years of experience dealing with the problem city-wide.
While every cleanup project is different, our process follows these six steps.

Vandalism results in graffiti, broken windows and smashed doors. Other types of vandalism damages include organic debris, broken water mains and interior ransacking. It can be very challenging to prevent vandalism, but government programs have been put into place to deter vandals.
We recommend addressing graffiti removal within the first 24 hours. After 48 hours, it becomes very difficult to completely remove graffiti stains.
Most business property policies cover damages caused by vandalism, including graffiti. If you're a commercial building tenant, speak with the property owner about coverage details.
