Vandalism Damage

Do:

  • Hose or wash egg damage from building exterior as soon as possible.
  • Blot freshly spilled food from carpets and fabrics with a dampened cloth or sponge (but don’t overwet). Scrape and blot; don’t rub since it can damage fibers.
  • Vacuum glass particles from carpets and upholstery.
  • Save containers that reveal the composition of spilled inks, cosmetics and paints.

Don’t:

  • Attempt to remove ink, paint or cosmetic stains.
  • Operate damaged lamps or appliances.
  • Discard wood chips, broken pieces from furniture, porcelain or other art objects.
