Graffiti Removal Info

It is best to clean graffiti as soon as possible so the paint does not have time to absorb to the surface. It also quickly reduces the chance that vandals will return and add more graffiti. If you need to report vandalism contact our dispatch center at 715-839-4972 or make an online report.

 See our graffiti brochure for additional graffiti removal tips.
