Preventing Graffiti

Graffiti creates fear and costs you business and customers. The sight of graffiti can also encourage people to commit acts of vandalism. Graffiti-filled areas often don't attract shoppers, customers, or investors. Even if your building is graffiti-free, the atmosphere in the neighborhood can impact your business.

Graffiti thrives when:

  1. There is a nice surface that is available to write on
  2. No one is around to see and report graffiti vandals.
