ShopShield provides a one-stop solution to securing empty retail premises against every major risk, from theft to vandalism, squatting to arson, delivered by the leading experts in UK retail property security services.
In addition to the standard ShopShield services, Clearway also offers a bolt-on utility isolation and drain-down service, knowing from our decades of experience the severity of the consequences of live power and water supplies running to a vacant property.
Utility isolations may be one of the most commonly overlooked necessities when securing an empty retail property – with the potential to cause exponential disaster.
Those risks include flooding from leaks, or pipe explosions from frozen pipes, gas leaks, the growth of bacteria in standing water rendering a water supply dangerous to health, and fires sparked by unattended or vandalised electricity supplies.
All commercial landlords or retail site managers must take control of the utility supplies to any empty premise and ensure these are professionally secured to protect the property’s structural integrity.
