Vandalism wording in 3 D SERVPRO commitment to your home or business when you have been a victim of vandalism.

Approximately 15 percent of Americans fall victim to vandalism each year.  Vandalism is one of the most common forms of crime committed against American households.  This act causes a violation of your sense of security as a property owner. Protecting your home or business from malicious destruction should be a top priority.  Taking common sense tips and applying them can help protect your property. 

Keep your property well lit:  Vandals gravitate toward dark areas.  Keep inside lights on to give an appearance of someone being home. Installing exterior lights equipped with motion detectors will scare intruders off.

Install a fence with a secure gate lock:  Vandals will not want to climb over a fence or try and break a lock.  Remember to keep the gate locked. 

Plant bushes or shrubs:  This not only makes your home or business attractive but serves as a deterrent. Shrubbery can consist of pointed leaves and thorns to cause climbing of going through them very uncomfortable.

Place video cameras on your property:  Footage of vandalism can be very helpful for the police.  Place them in open areas to deter vandals.

If you have been a victim of vandalism, clean up without delay:  Vandals want their malicious work to be seen.  If it is cleaned immediately, they are less likely to return.

Report your vandalism to the Police:  Reporting will let them know what areas need to be patrolled more often.

Keep your blinds and curtains closed when leaving lights on:  When your blinds and curtains are closed with a light on the vandals are not able to see if someone is home. This causes an uncertainty and deters them.

Install break resistant glass:  Shatter-resistant windows and light fixtures can make it much more difficult for vandals to damage your property, especially with lights. Vandals prefer the cover of darkness and typically go for lights first.

Your quick response to clean up will show you care about your property and will not have displays of vandalism.   SERVPRO Franchise Professionals will act quickly to remove vandalism and graffiti from home and commercial spaces. In addition to removing spray-painted graffiti from exterior walls, they can also clean driveways, walkways, asphalt, metals, wood, glass, plastic, and masonry.
