Graffiti is far from a new problem. However, it’s also an escalating—and expensive—one. In fact, graffiti cleanup costs cities across the United States a staggering $12 billion total every year. And that’s not even getting into the costs to communities, businesses, and service organizations in terms of lost customers and revenue.

Take a closer look at the toll graffiti may be taking on your university, museum, hospital, or other entity and why the problem may be increasing. There are also a few proven steps you can take — such as anti-graffiti window films — to keep your space graffiti-free.

Is Graffiti Hurting Your Organization?

While some people think of graffiti as art, it is often a deterrent to visitors in public spaces. When properties, signs, public transportation, and other locations are tainted by graffiti, it can give the impression that areas are not only run down and neglected, but also potentially dangerous. As such, visitors may avoid graffiti-affected businesses, organizations, and services. In addition to resulting in an immediate drop in customers and revenue, this can also lead to lower property values over time.

Some other things to know about graffiti’s impact on your business? It’s more common during warm weather and also rises during difficult economic times.

Not to mention that if you don’t have the resources to dedicate to constant prevention and cleanup measures, it can keep happening again and again. In fact, research shows that creating graffiti can actually be addictive, and vandals may return again and again for the thrill of it.
