If you need to know exactly how to get rid of spray paint from your walls then I might just have what you are looking for. And the best part is that it doesn’t really matter what material the wall is made out of – brick or metal – I will show you how to deal with this problem either way.
How to remove spray paint from brick walls?
If you have brick walls then you either need a paint thinner or a porous graffiti remover. This is the most important item you need when it comes to removing spray paint.
You need to spray the paint with the product of your choice and leave it for 20 minutes. Then continue with rinsing the wall. If you can use a pressure washer then this process will be a lot faster.
If you notice there is still some paint residue make sure you repeat everything once again.
Keep in mind that you should never use acids on brick walls because you can damage them.
How to remove spray paint from metal?
When it comes to removing spray paint from metal you have three options. The first one is using a commercial cleaner – and always follow the instructions.
The second option is to heat the area of spray paint. You can use a hairdryer to do that. Then soak a sponge in soapy water and clean the affected area.
And the third option is to use household items. I love using baking soda for cleaning around my home and I am going to include it in this article. Make a paste with the baking soda and hot water. Apply the paste on the spray paint and leave it for 20 minutes. In my experience, the paint should start peeling once the paste is dry.
