Why Boarding Up Your Storefront During COVID-19 Is a Good Idea
If you have a commercial business, then boarding up your storefront may be a good idea if you are currently closed because of COVID-19. In this article, we're going to explain why you may want to consider boarding up your store or business.
There has been a significant spike in business break-ins all over Canada during this pandemic. The reason for this is that most people have been staying home and businesses have been closed. In addition, this is a time of economic hardship for many individuals. Some people are turning to crime because of desperation.
When criminals can see inside a business premises, that makes for an easier target. When windows are boarded up, then criminals can't see what's inside the premises. Not being able to see what's inside lowers your risk of break-in.
We often see homes and business boarded up when we expect very bad weather. In this instance, the boarding protects the glass, and glass is less likely to be broken. However, boarding the windows can serve other purposes as well.
Whether your business is boarded on the inside of the glass or the outside, just not being able to see inside will lower your risk or break-in.
We recommend that you board up your business if you are not opening right away, not staying open for many hours, or going out of business altogether. Boarding up the glass will protect your assets and inventory from theft.
