Although it’s minor to many large corporations, vandalism is an act that can cripple a small business. While there are many insurance policies that can protect your business from vandalism, it’s best to prevent it and provide deterrents so you never have to deal with it destroying your Tampa, Florida, business. By making the proper installations and monitoring your property, you can protect your business from the ill effects of vandalism.
Get to Know Your Neighbors
One of the best ways to prevent vandalism at your business is to get to know your neighbors. There’s no doubt that other local businesses won’t look too kindly on vandalism destroying their means of a living, and they most likely share the same sentiment for your business. Always take the time to meet fellow entrepreneurs and businesses in your neighborhood, as they’ll likely keep an eye on your business.
Install Lighting and Cameras
Most vandals choose their targets as a crime of opportunity. They look for low lighting and the absence of cameras to do their work. That’s where an upgrade or installation of lighting and cameras can make all the difference. Motion-sensor or dusk-to-dawn lighting is ideal to keep criminals away, while real or fake cameras can make them think twice about damaging your business.
