SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ - California's water conservation campaign has a new ally with the Tornado ACS System. The patented chemical-free and waterless system has buy-in with the City of San Francisco and the University of California, Berkeley to remove graffiti tags and restore surfaces including brick, concrete, tile, metal, plastic, plaster, natural stone and reclaimed wood.


Absolutely no water or chemicals are required with the Tornado ACS. The eco-friendly system restores surfaces using media including nut shells and other natural substances to remove unsightly - and illegal - graffiti.

"The Tornado ACS is already successfully in use with Baltimore City Public Schools and the University of North Carolina," states Luciano Montemarano, president of Tornado ACS. "Schools, property owners and municipalities appreciate that the media is used and recycled in selfcontained units. There is no need to cordon-off cleanup areas or hire special crews to handle hazardous substances. Graffiti vandalized sites can be restored with the Tornado ACS during normal business hours."

Graffiti is harmful to communities, and especially costly to government, businesses, schools and property owners. Graffiti can lead to declines in property values and lost revenues associated with reduced retail sales. Graffiti is often perceived as a sign that an area is deteriorating. San Francisco spends more than $20 million annually on graffiti cleanup. San Francisco's Department of Public Works advises and works with the community to educate and enforce graffiti removal.

According to Mr. Montemarano, "Research shows the best defense against graffiti vandalism is rapid removal. There is nearly a zero rate of reoccurrence in areas where graffiti is removed within 24 to 48 hours of the incident."
