Paint Remover Wipes - Sunday, May 4, 2014

No matter how hard or how long you scrub away at graffiti paint, if you're just using water or a regular cleaning solution, you'll be there for some time! Whilst some surfaces are tough enough and are able to endure heavy and prolonged scrubbing, others will quickly become damaged and start to cause you even more problems. You may be able to use harsh wire brushes on brick and stonework without making too much of a mess but for things like wood, plastic & stone cladding, you will have to stick to using something much more suited to the task.

If you have trouble with graffiti paint on and around your business premises, rather than spending lots of time and effort using the wrong tools and equipment, you should look to using specialist-cleaning chemicals such as paint remover wipes. APT have been supplying businesses all around the UK with the best chemicals for every job and have a range of products ideally suited for the removal and prevention of graffiti. Their paint remover wipes are perfect for smaller areas and will allow you & your workers to quickly and effectively remove any traces of paint before it has chance to set in. Find out more on

Anti Algae Treatment - Sunday, May 4, 2014

Algae is a common issue affecting many surfaces that are exposed to moisture and the elements. Areas that are particularly at risk of developing an algae problem include walls, pathways, roofs, gutters, motor homes, convertible roofs, awnings, cladding, boats & sails, swimming pools, conservatories, bollards, bus stops and road signs. The reason why algae is such a problem is for several reasons:

  • Fast growing – It doesn't take long for algae to begin to grow and develop.
  • Difficult to remove – As well as being relatively difficult to remove in itself, if you happen to leave traces on the surface, it will grow back even quicker next time. This is a particular problem for things like car roofs and awnings due to the fact that the algae can penetrate deep into the fibres of the material. For this reason a highly effective anti algae treatment will be required.
  • Unsightly – As algae is a dark green colour, it will make any surface look messy and uncared for.
  • Hazardous – In addition to being unsightly, algae can also cause a health hazard due to its slippery nature. Concrete and wooden paths are at most risk of this and should be dealt with sooner rather than later especially on business premises where customers or employees could be at risk.

APT have a great range of anti algae treatment and you can view and buy them on their website –
