NCPTT is developing better strategies for the removal of graffiti from brick masonry buildings. Graffiti is a pervasive problem in urban areas and affects historic structures. NCPTT student intern, Catherine Arceneaux, is using information from an online survey of preservation professionals to design experiments to test and compare commercially available products for removal of graffiti.
