Broken glass can leave your business susceptible to theft and weather issues. Perhaps, those are the issues that caused the broken glass in the first place. In any case, it’s important you get the mess cleaned up and taken care of right away. If you arrive at your office to find broken glass, follow these important steps.
Call the Police
If you only have limited vision from where you stand, it’s possible someone broke in and is still inside your building. This could pose serious danger for you and your employees. Stay outside and call the authorities to check out the scene and make sure it is safe. If you entered the building before noticing the broken glass, try not to disturb anything, as it could be evidence of theft, and the responding officers may want to take a look.
Note the Damage
Take note of all the damage your building sustained. Aside from the broken glass, is anything missing? What other items are damaged? Taking pictures could also help you deal with the insurance company.
