For building managers, defacement and damage to an elevator can lead to a lot of stress. Elevators have a lot of components that vandals and troublemakers like to tamper with. They can graffiti the mirrors, crack the lights, and take part in other forms of vandalism that will harm the appearance of the elevator and the reputation of your building. To protect your business and elevator, here are some tips on how to mitigate damage.
When a person tampers with your elevator, they may do more damage than you suspect. Mashing buttons, for instance, can lead to mechanical issues. Vandalism does not only hurt the appearance of the elevator, but it can damage the function. You need to make sure that your elevator functions properly.
Take Action Promptly
Do not leave vandalism for long. You want your staff and visitors to know that you take pride in your building. In addition, you want to ensure that your elevator functions correctly, as any damage to the mechanics can be dangerous. Always take care of any defacement right away. This protects your business and your elevator.
You may want to consider deterring criminals from defacing your elevator. If you are able, you can install cameras. To help stop accidental damage, install padding in case anyone needs to move heavy equipment to and from different floors. Another way to deter vandals is to keep your elevator clean. Often, if you keep your property clean, it sends a positive message to others and vandals may be less likely to think that they can get away with vandalism.
To mitigate damage to your elevator, you need to act promptly. Even if you are only dealing with surface damage, it is important for your reputation to take care of everything as quickly as possible.
