At ICE Cleaning, our graffiti removal services ensure a 100% success rate on all surfaces, utilising safe and sustainable solutions to ensure each clean is gentle and eco-friendly.

We partnered up with Southwark Council in September of 2023 to conduct graffiti removal services, intending to create a clean and safe community that residents could be proud of.

The Challenge and Statistics

Southwark Council has struggled with graffiti in local communities for a while - with areas like Peckham feeling unsafe and "run-down" according to locals. According to Southwark Council data, graffiti levels have doubled since 2018, from 4.96% to 10%.

These numbers have doubled as many private property owners cannot afford to remove graffiti; therefore, the community have become complacent and accept it as a part of the landscape.

However, Southwark Council's mission to make the community safer and cleaner aims to change this complacency. According to local news sources, Southwark Council have recently decided to change their stance on graffiti removal, pledging to waive charges for graffiti removals on privately owned buildings.

This helps private property owners afford the cost of removal whilst deterring repeat offenders. With our graffiti removal services at ICE Cleaning, we have been helping to remove graffiti across the borough and restore public spaces.

ICE Cleaning’s Graffiti Removal Solutions

Every day, we collaborate with Southwark Council to eradicate graffiti in the entire area by taking swift action whenever residents report any act of vandalism. At ICE Cleaning, we utilise one of three methods: 

  • The TORIK Brick & Stone Cleaning System
  • Aquila pressure washing
  • Sandblasting

We use one of these depending on the material of the surface, the extent of vandalism, and how old the graffiti is. Our process for removing vandalism also involves applying a coating that will resist future paint and make future removal easier.

Protecting The Southwark Borough Going Forward

Since September 2023, ICE Cleaning's teams responsible for graffiti removal have made great strides in cleaning up public areas relying on eco-friendly solutions. Our team's hard work has made a safer community and prevented the return of repeat vandalism.

We will continue to conduct daily cleaning until March this year when we hope to create a safe, clean community in the Southwark Borough and decrease the levels of graffiti for good.
