Graffiti Prevention and Removal
Keep Your Property Graffiti Free!

Graffiti is the most common type of property vandalism (35%) according to the Bureau of Justice statistics.  Below are some tip to help fight graffiti in your neighborhood:
  • The most effective way to prevent graffiti is to remove it promptly. Studies show that removal within 24-48 hours results in a nearly zero rate of recurrence.
  • Report graffiti to the Police Department.
  • Restrict access to graffiti-prone areas by planting trees or other greenery.
  • Install lighting in areas that are dark and targets for graffiti.
  • Use a graffiti resistant surface treatment.
Avondale city code requires that all surfaces including, but not limited to, buildings, walls, parking lots, signs, fences, and dumpsters must be kept graffiti free and that graffiti be removed from any surface within forty-eight (48) hours.
