Personal Safety Measures We Recommend After Flood Damage in Dallas

Safety is paramount when dealing with flood damage in Dallas. While you can get caught up trying to protect your home through the chaos of a flood, you could inadvertently be putting yourself at risk without even realizing it. With a few minor actions, you can significantly improve upon the safety of yourself and your family during and after the flood event. SERVPRO technicians incorporate these tips into their training to ensure their safety, and we recommend that you do the same.

Wear Personal Protective Equipment

One of the most effective ways that you can protect yourself from harm from flood damage in your Dallas home is to utilize common types of personal protective equipment. The most widespread and readily available type of protective gear is the rubber glove, a valuable tool for anyone touching surfaces and objects tainted by floodwaters. Make sure that these gloves are waterproof, and if they have or develop any holes, throw them away. If available, try to make use of goggles, protective glasses, face masks, and rubber boots to maximize your protection against harmful bacteria and viruses.

Sanitize Thoroughly

Hand sanitizer and antibacterial soap should be your two best friends after flood damage has hit. Even if you are wearing gloves, there is still a chance for harmful microbes to find their way onto your hands. Regular washing and hand sanitizer usage is an effective way to protect yourself against these threats.

Avoid Dangers

The most effective way you can protect yourself from threats is to avoid them entirely. SERVPRO technicians are trained to identify safety threats, but without their knowledge and experience, you may not identify these issues in advance. Avoid any standing water still in the home and be cautious around electrical devices to avoid many of the most severe risks.
