Vandalism and Dilapidation Protection
Home Property Security Vandalism and Dilapidation Protection
Empty buildings are easy targets for vandalism, theft and criminal damage. Graffiti and broken windows are a tell-tale sign that a building is vacant, neglected and badly managed. If these issues are not tended to then this tends to perpetuate these issues.
Empty buildings are easy targets for vandalism, theft and criminal damage
This usually attracts further vandals and a building can quickly slide into a state of neglect and disrepair, damaging morale in the local community, having a negative impact on local business and property values, putting local people at risk and presenting a general eyesore in the neighbourhood.
Visibly neglected properties are also obvious targets for metal theft. (click here to read how we mitigate risk from metal theft) Kitchen and office appliances, landscape stones, tiling, roof tiles, doors, timber and any other on-site valuables are at risk when properties are clearly vacant.
Our on-site presence deters vandals and prevents theft and criminal damage
Once a property is allowed to deteriorate, restoring or selling it becomes increasingly difficult. Our on-site presence deters vandals and prevents theft and criminal damage. By ensuring there are occupiers in the building, we virtually eliminate the risk of vandalism, theft and criminal damage.
Where there are incidents of vandalism, theft or damage we have an on-site presence that enables us to deal with the situation effectively and immediately. Our guards report cases through our reactive maintenance service and repairs begin straight away, preventing any further deterioration of the property.
Live-in guardians are a particularly effective means of guarding against vandalism. With multiple guardians on-site, the building is regularly patrolled and occupied throughout, enabling any damage to be sighted and reported early or intervened with as it happens. Vandals tend to prefer not to target places where people live. Live-in guards are a moral deterrent.
Our guards have a vested interest in securing property and preventing any criminal damage being done because it is temporarily where they live. By using live-in guards and occupation by charities we ensure the building looks occupied and in use at all times. This is a highly effective deterrent to vandalism and theft.
