Orange oils could be used as an eco-friendly alternative in Commercial Cleaning, it has been suggested.
Hartlepool Council has announced a new scheme aimed at tackling graffiti in the town that will make use of the technique.
Orange oils, extracted from the rinds of oranges, are a natural solvent and are kinder to the environment than chemical alternatives while also being less corrosive to brickwork and other building materials.
Called Hartlepool Active Response Team (HART), the new scheme will see a dedicated cleaning team seek out and tackle graffiti across the town and provide a rapid response to emergency graffiti removal requests.
Terry Robinson, HART manager, said: “This new system is much gentler, so we can tackle virtually all types of surfaces. It uses chemicals from orange oils which can be brushed on and which effectively wrap themselves around the paint molecules, making the paint or marker pen ink a lot easier to rinse off.”
Southport Council recently launched a deep-cleaning programme that aims to rid the town centre of chewing gum and graffiti.
