Heritage Buildings - Graffiti Removal Procedure
- First, if you are not sure if your building has a heritage designation check the list of heritage buildings on the City of Regina website to find out if your building is listed.
- Surface cleaning can damage historic material and should only be done after a careful review of the cleaning process to be used. Cleaning methods should utilize the gentlest means possible; methods which erode surface material, such as sandblasting of brick, metal or wood, are not recommended.
|Before Cleaning||After Cleaning|
- If the cleaning of any designated heritage building will alter the heritage surface, the property owner shall obtain approval from the Development Services Department, 306-777-7000.
- Previously painted surface can simply be repainted.
- A bare surface like wood, concrete, masonry, stone, retaining walls and decorative concrete must be cleaned with a gentle process so the surface is not damaged or altered during cleaning. If pressure washing is used a low pressure setting is recommended
- Protective coating whether permanent or sacrificial must not be used on any heritage surface.
- Hiring a professional graffiti removal company may be easier and safer.
