The importance of property owners removing graffiti

On Behalf of | Jan 18, 2022 | Make Atlanta Safe |

When someone chooses to put graffiti on your property, they are not likely aware of the total damage they are inflicting. Graffiti is bad for business in a number of ways, and it is important to recognize how it can hurt your business to incentivize you to remove it as soon as possible. If you own an apartment, hotel or shopping area, here are just a few reasons you should remove the graffiti on your property:

Reduces the flow of business

Many potential customers want to give their business to a company that appears to be a safe and secure location. Even one piece of graffiti can make a business look undesirable to people passing by and cost the owners income in the process.

Invites more graffiti

Graffiti almost seems to have a way of multiplying. These street artists often see a piece of graffiti as a welcome to add their own artwork to a building. One piece of neglected graffiti can quickly turn into an entire wall of graffiti, or even your whole building covered.

Promotes gang activity

If the graffiti on your business is gang-related, it may attract foot traffic you may not want for your company. Gang activity can also quickly create negative reviews of your company, causing long-lasting damage to your company’s business. It can also become a safety liability for your other guests as well.

Do not ignore the damage on your wall

Letting graffiti stay on your property can develop consequences that can jeopardize your company and yourself. If you have graffiti on your business, do not make the mistake of ignoring it. Make the extra effort of keeping your business clean to protect your company and its future.
