De-imaging

CAP has the ability to remove visual references to the former tenant of an abandoned structure. This process is referred to as "De-imaging." De-imaging is completed in conjunction with clearing out a vacant building shortly after the former tenant has left. Protecting the former operator's brand, image and reputation is CAP's main goal.

CAP offers a full scope of services available for de-imaging, including:

  • Changing locks to all entry doors
  • Installing a lockbox
  • Boarding of all windows and glass doors, if required under the lease agreement and/or to prevent vandalism
  • Re-glazing broken windows if boarding is not desired or permitted
  • Removing all interior and exterior signage, including removal of all logos from the building, interior and exterior menu boards, pole/monument signs, and directional signs
  • Repainting the building exterior to remove trademarks and color schemes of the former tenant
  • Modifying structural features of the building to remove distinctive images of the former tenant
  • Removing all highway signs, billboards, or other signage that would direct customers to the location
  • Removing all point-of-purchase elements and trademarks, merchandise, any promotional decals, and other promotional material or merchandising items
  • Properly capping all exposed electrical wiring
  • Properly terminating all utilities
  • Ensuring that the property's interior and exterior (including dumpsters) is free from trash and debris
  • Removing all food, paper and other interior debris from the premises
