Brampton's Khalsa Community School removes Racist Graffiti with Tornado ACS, advanced 'green' restoration process, both water and chemical-free
BRAMPTON, ON, July 12, 2012 /CNW/ - Hate-inspired vandalism at Brampton's Khalsa Community School sent shock waves of dismay throughout the worldwide Sikh community this week. Fortunately for the school and the community, a 'green' water- and chemical-free solution for restoring the school property was provided by Toronto-based Tornado ACS.
On Tuesday morning, police notified school officials of the racist graffiti, including the letters 'KKK' and swastikas. The hate symbols were approximately four feet high, covering an exterior wall area of approximately 100 square feet, says Ripsodhak Singh Grewal, school principal.
"Despite best cleaning efforts using water and cleaners, a clearly visible 'halo' remained," says Mr. Grewal. The problem marks remained because the offensive graffiti was originally sprayed on with black paint, almost impossible to remove without leaving offensive markings.
Hearing of the school's plight, representatives of Tornado ACS Canada volunteered their services with the Tornado ACS system that removes graffiti marks and the "halo" that cannot be successfully removed without the use of the restoration process provided by the Tornado ACS.
Tornado ACS representative, Nick Abruscato stated, "We wanted to volunteer our time and our 'green' process to help the Khalsa Community School remove the unsightly damage to their school property. Industry research shows that if the graffiti can be removed within 24 - 48 hours after the incident, the chance of re-occurrence greatly diminishes. Tornado ACS wanted to reach out into our own community because there was a need."
Tornado ACS Canada sells and distributes its unique 'green' restoration equipment to schools, municipalities, contractors and facilities' management firms throughout North America. School boards in Baltimore, Atlanta and Lethbridge have acquired the Tornado ACS. The system is distinguished by the fact that it can be used in both interior and exterior areas for restoration and graffiti removal situations. The restoration process can be achieved while business or school is in process. Most importantly the water- and chemical-free restoration process is so gentle it can remove ink from paper without damaging the paper.
