Let’s Talk


    What is Clean Graffiti?

    We make a contrast on the sidewalk by using high pressure water on top of a stencil. We leave behind a clean message on a dirty sidewalk using just water. Seriously it’s just water – no paint, no acid, no bleach, no epoxy…. just making a contrast in dirt.

    Where can you put a Clean Graffiti spot?

    We operate in the public right of way. That means public sidewalks (not private property). Our team is highly trained through working in over 70 cities and know where to go.

    Who is Clean Graffiti perfect for?

    Perfect for brand awareness campaigns, events, venues, apartment complexes, healthcare, restaurants, or a call to action (in a creative way). Clean Graffiti is ideal for Marketing Agencies who are looking for the next best medium for their clients. We’ve worked with Project Managers, Graphic Designers, Sales Representatives and Company Owners to bring campaigns to life on a local and national level. Simply fill out our contact form to start the conversation.

    How long do spots last?

    Spots can last one month to eight months – were working with Mother Nature so there are a lot of variables at play. Trees, mold, pollen, exhaust, etc. the dirtier the better! Eventually spots will fade away naturally but a removal of the campaign can be added if the campaign is time sensitive (additional fees may apply). This is also an eco-friendly process and we’d just be pressure washing the sidewalk further.

    What is a typical buy?

    Our packages include one stencil, creative design of the stencil (if needed), location scouting, mapping, execution and full summary with photos.

    Can you do Clean Graffiti in any city?

    We operate all over the USA. We have a trained team of professionals ready to bring this eco-friendly form of outdoor advertising to your city.
