Sign Cleaning Service

Being a sign in the great outdoors can be a tough existence! Exposed to traffic and the elements they can get covered in dirt spray from the roads, exhaust residue, moss and algae, often obscuring vital rules of the highway such as speed limits, or directions to departments or car parks. For sites or organisations with a large signage portfolio we can attend your site at regular or fixed intervals for example every 3, 6 or 12 months and return your signs to a TipTop condition, whether that is using a good old bucket of water and sponge, solvent cleaners or a good old jet-wash.

Dirt is not the only problem though. External signs seem to have become a free advertising hoarding for all and sundry. We see it everywhere “cash for cars”, “we’ll take your rubbish away”, “come to our event”, stickers stuck to signs or placards cable-tied to posts. Most of these don’t have permission to be displayed in the first place so should be removed for that reason alone, and most remain in place for months or years. They may be positioned so as not to obscure the message the sign is communicating, but they can certainly cause a distraction which can be dangerous, not to mention how unsightly they are. It is in effect a form of graffiti.

Signs can also get obscured over time by trees and shrubs and we are happy to do a bit of pruning to make them visible again.

This service is primarily aimed at organisations that have a large amount of external signage displayed on their estate, for example hospitals, business parks and university campuses. Local councils, we offer our service to you also but we know many of you don’t have the budget for sign cleaning, and there maybe issues with highway closures for example, but let’s be honest some public highway signage is in a dreadful condition with speed limits for example barely visible on occasion.
