If your home or business was vandalized, you are probably feeling angry, worried and unsafe. In addition to being expensive to fix, vandalism can also leave your home or business vulnerable to other potential damage or theft. If you have broken doors, windows, or damaged walls, it may be easier for people to get into the building to steal your belongings or vandalize the interior of the building. In addition, outside elements that your belongings would normally be protected from (like rain, wind and even wildlife) might make their way into your home or business and cause more damage.
After the police have left the scene, you will need to secure your home or building by boarding up broken windows, doors or holes in walls. If you rent your home or office building, you should contact the property manager before attempting to board anything up.
