There are many commercial property owners that struggle to keep their buildings safe from graffiti and vandalism. This can in turn, cost business owners a lot of money to get rid of. The best approach to graffiti and vandalism is to avoid it in the first place. There are several things that business owners can do to avoid graffiti in the first place. Big Moose Pressure Cleaning is here to share some tips that will hopefully help business owners avoid graffiti and vandalism on their buildings.
Control Access to Building
If it is possible, one of the best ways to keep your building from getting tagged is to make it inaccessible. You can do this a number of different ways. Here are some ideas:
– Fence: One of the most classic ways to keep people off of your property is to build a fence around it. If you have the ability to put a fence up, you are going to see fewer problems.
– Landscaping: You can use plants to make it more difficult to get to the building as well. You can plant trees or shrubs in front of the blank wall of your building, or you can even grow climbing plants that will climb up the wall of your building and make it less ideal for tagging.
– Murals: You can beat them to it and have a mural painted on your building by a local artist. When there is a blank wall, it is far more attractive to taggers. Covering it with your own art makes it less appealing.
Can Building Security Be Improved?
Another approach you can take to protecting your building from graffiti and vandalism is to beef up the security of your building. One great way is to install motion sensor lighting. That way, if someone tries to walk up to byte building, there will be bright lights that won’t allow them to do their work in the dark of the night anymore. You can also have security cameras installed around the building to help you keep an eye on things. Not only will you be able to alert the authorities when there is any vandalism taking place, but just the presence of lighting and cameras is often enough to keep vandalism and graffiti from happening on your property. Make sure you have talked to the local authorities about the problem so that they can be aware of what is going on as well.
