Ebola is a virus that has recently captured the world’s attention. Since it appeared in Western Africa a while ago, the virus has reached further territory and infected people in Europe, Asia, and recently, the first cases of North America have been detected.
Mortality rate is of nearly 50% and this is not the main problem, but that there is no cure or vaccine for the virus.
Graffiti in Melbourne is a problem that shares many characteristics with Ebola. Just like this virus, our society has not found a permanent solution for the problem. Graffiti in Melbourne seems to reappear everyday and, until now, we had two solutions to make is disappear.
The first one is to remove the graffiti within the first 48 hours. It is demonstrated that removing graffiti immediately is one of the best strategies for avoiding another attack.
The second strategy is to apply anti-graffiti coatings. These layers are highly effective in property that is constantly spray-painted. The most advanced coatings that we apply allow you to remove graffiti immediately using hot water.
Other strategies for graffiti removal is using CCTV cameras, gates, enclosing walls, or barbed wire around the property.There is a huge difference between both issues. Ebola is a virus and as long as it can be isolated or our bodies have enough immunity, the problem is solved. Laboratories around the world, governments, and pharmacists are working arduously to find a cure. The possibilities of controlling this epidemic in mid or long term are high.
On the other hand, graffiti is a complex issue and it has many sides. It is impossible to find a specific solution for the problem. One thing that is highly relevant is that education and promoting the respect of private and public property will always have an important role in the control of graffiti. Meanwhile, Ablate will keep on removing graffiti from every corner of Melbourne, in order to make this city reach its highest potential.
