What Is Considered Vandalism
Vandalism is any deliberate act of destruction against a property. In most cases, graffiti is the most common type of vandalism. Many consider graffiti art, however when it’s destruction to your home or business, we would bet you are not thinking it’s just art. Other types of vandalism include property damage such as broken windows, doors busted, or any other type of malicious damage. One surprising type of vandalism is damage to billboards. Many consider billboards as a perfect target for graffiti artists, as they will be seen by potentially thousands of people every day, especially if it is not cleaned fast.
Let’s Talk About Cleaning Up After Vandalism
In the case of vandalism to your house or business, it’s best to not touch it. As hard as it is to want to start cleanup immediately, beginning the restoration process yourself could lead to more problems with your insurance company in the long run. Take pictures of all the damages done and then show before and after pictures to your insurance company or local public adjuster so they can begin the claims process. Once you have done this it’s time to call a restoration company such as Rhode Island Restoration to begin the cleanup process. By using a restoration company to repair any damages to your home or business, you are ensuring your property will be restored back to normal, if not better than before the vandalism incident.
How Long Will It Take To Repair The Damage After Vandalism?
This all depends on the extent of the damage. In most cases we have seen, the longest part of the repair process is making sure the insurance claim goes through correctly. Once everything is all clear, we are ready to begin restoring your home or business back to normal.
