Most business owners think vandalism is a nightmare. If you are worried about this criminal act happening in your business property, you actually have a reason to be.
Your business is one of the huge investments you have in your life. It is most likely your livelihood. Therefore, it is essential that you protect it both inside and outside.
What Is Vandalism?
Vandalism is mainly an intent to destroy a place. You have equipment theft, arson, damaged doors and broken windows, property defacement, pulled fire alarms, squatters, landscape sabotage, and graffiti. The result of these are typically an unattractive mess and oftentimes costly to repair.
Here are 6 simple ways to lower the risk of vandalism in your business property:
1. Keep Storage Rooms Securely Locked
If you have storage area outside your business property, the items and equipment there are more susceptible to being vandalized. Examples for this are stockrooms, outhouses, and sheds. So, keep everything secure such as your gardening equipment, motor bikes, etc.
2. Install CCTV Systems
A business establishment that has CCTV cameras installed outside, is not attractive to vandals and criminals. These people may like to destroy things and places, but they are wary of areas that have footage to identify them.
3. Install Burglar Alarms
You can add burglar alarms to your property, especially if your business is located in high risk area. When decorating graffiti on the walls is not enough for the perpetrators, and they attempt to break in to your office at night, a burglar alarm will come useful.
4. Grow Some Plants and Shrubs
Plant shrubs, bushes, or small trees strategically outside your property. For example, put them on walls that may attract vandals, or on spots that can easily give criminals to gain access inside.
5. Use Automated Gate System
If your business has a big driveway or parking area, installing an automated gate system will make it difficult for vandals to enter your property. If they cannot reach your property, then they cannot do any damages.
6. Put Up Lots of Lights
A well lit area is a major deterrent to would-be criminals. These people prefer to work in the dark. Put plenty of lighting around your property. Also, make sure the street lights in your neighborhood are all working.
It is possible to prevent your business to be the target of vandals in performing their criminal acts. With the tips above, you can reduce the risk of vandalism and may also help catch those vandals.
