Flood Damage Cleanup For Your Property In Amherst
Flooding in Amherst from heavy rainfall can cause local streams and creeks to overflow, flooding roads, properties, and even homes. The heavy winds that usually accompany these storms can uproot trees, causing even more significant damage. If your home has experienced flooding, it is something you need professional help with quickly once the storms subside.
Flood damage cleanup for your Amherst home is something that needs to be done in a timely fashion to prevent further issues but also needs to be done safely. At SERVPRO, our staff is trained to be able to restore your home and possessions without risk to your family or our workers. The proper safety equipment helps us to do so.
When your home has floodwaters invade it, there may be potential hazards we need to be careful of so we can keep everyone safe. Personal protective equipment is available to all workers on site to ensure safe working conditions.
SERVPRO techs wear gloves to protect hands from absorbing substances or getting contaminated with microorganisms. The kind of glove can be selected based on its ability to protect against the hazards and conditions of the work environment. When certain materials cannot be restored, demolition is needed. We might also need to expose trapped and hidden moisture. Heavy-duty gloves help protect hands during the demolition and removal of structural materials.
Eye protection is worn to protect from punctures from flying particles or burns from corrosive substances. If extensive mold growth has occurred, mold spores can infect the eyes, so we wear full-face respirators or goggles. Head protection is also needed if there is any danger of falling objects or confined spaces. Hard hats are regularly inspected to ensure the shell and suspension system are in good condition.
We also use rubber boots to protect from electrical hazards or coming into contact with harmful substances. Boots can be equipped with steel shanks for the ball of the foot, steel soles for the whole sole, or steel toes.
We are also careful in flood situations to ensure the power is turned off. Various kinds of circuit testers are available, and we can use one to tell whether a circuit is grounded and protected by a GFCI.
