Maintaining a Squeaky Clean Image

Wiping Out Graffiti

Combined with the muscle of the Clean Sweep Ambassadors, the Graffiti Removal Team aids in maintaining downtown Milwaukee’s squeaky-clean image. Once graffiti is spotted, the Graffiti Removal Team is on site within 24 hours to wipe it away. Armed with biodegradable chemical removers, paint, pressure washers and soda waterblasters, the team eliminates the toughest of stains, while saving BID #21 thousands of dollars and deterring future vandalism.
