How Vital Is Protective Equipment When Restoring Flood Damage?
SERVPRO Prioritizes Protection of Restorers and Occupants in New Britain Homes
Resolving the problems caused by a flooding incident can take time. The process might also pose some risks to the person doing restoration or the home’s occupants. Having the proper protective equipment not only ensures safety but also helps speed up the restoration work.
The protective equipment needed during flood damage restoration in New Britain is mostly the personal protective equipment worn by restorers. Containment materials might also be necessary to help prevent the spread of infectious wastes or biohazards such as raw sewage all over the property.
When preparing for cleanup and other flooding-related restoration tasks in New Britain properties, SERVPRO ensures there are sufficient protective resources, including:
- A range of PPE like rubber boots, respirators, bodysuits, and chemical resistant gloves
- Materials such as 8-mil plastic sheets to set up containment
- EPA-registered disinfectants
- Appropriate trash containers or bags
With the protective equipment, our SERVPRO technicians can wade into the flooded house immediately and complete some tasks such as moving some of the affected contents before they develop severe damages. Such response reduces the overall work needed to restore the property, thus improving turnaround time.
